In the early 2000s, the federal government began dealing with gang-related crimes across the US. This decision was made as a result of increased gang sizes and occurrences of sophisticated gang-related crime; the combination of these factors was too great for state governments to properly handle. When dealing with these cases, the federal government’s approach is to make as many arrests as they can while specifically targeting the top gang members. Oftentimes, this means they are sweeping people into big nets that are tangentially linked to gangs, which can result in little players receiving serious charges even when they probably shouldn’t. An experienced attorney with the right skills will be able to separate the little players from the big ones, review all of the discovery, wiretap evidence, and video surveillance, and put someone in the best position to avoid serious charges.
