Juvenile Gang Offenses in Vallejo , California
A minor may become associated with a gang due to peer pressure, or he or she may be seeking the protection or feeling of belonging that they believe a gang can provide. It is a fact that people make mistakes every day, and young people are especially prone to this because they are often more impressionable.
Being convicted of a gang-related offense may put a strike on your child’s record, meaning that any future conviction may result in a doubled sentence. If your child already has a strike on his or her record, this means that he or she will face double the sentence this time around. Your child cannot afford a conviction for this type of offense.
