Criminal Lawyers in San Antonio TX
Texas legislature has enhanced penalties for convicted criminals proven by the prosecution to have executed a gang related crime. The end result of this attempt to crack down on gang violence means harsher punishments for gang members, especially if crimes are committed next to certain zones such as a school, daycare, or shopping mall. But the accusation of gang related crime does not just apply to acute incidents. In their effort to curb violence, local jurisdictions or the State of Texas may impose temporary gang injunctions that designate certain areas where it is prohibited for individuals to gather in a group and loiter, even without an express purpose to do violence.
