When Gang Violence Becomes a Federal Offense

In some cases, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may take a vested interest in a gang arrest. They report that there are more than 33,000 violent street, motorcycle and prison gangs throughout the country, topping out at over a million members. As many "are sophisticated and well organized" it has become a primary goal of the federal organization to crack down on this type of crime.

This led to over 150 Safe Streets Task Forces (SSTFs) stationed throughout the country to help crack down on this. In 2010, they reported that there were over a thousand disruptions and nearly a hundred RICO indictments. The FBI has reported that there has been a 40% increase in gang participation, causing gangs to infiltrate new territories and flexing new control over many areas.

Due to this, the FBI does not take gang violence lightly and will do everything that they can to crack down on what they perceive to be a gang-related crime. If you have been accused of such an offense, no matter whether it was for trafficking or spray painting the side of a building, you need to be confident that you have an aggressive advocate on your side who will be able to fight for you.

Being accused of or convicted for gang crimes may have a significant impact on your future. It may lead to limited employment and financial opportunities and may result in an entirely changed future.
