Accused of Involvement in Organized Crime? Contact Bill Kennedy Law Today

In the modern world, prosecution of illegal gang activity is growing more severe. The government seems to feel that organized crime is out of its control, and officials are striking down on individuals as a result.


The United States Department of Justice defines a gang as an association of three or more individuals. This faction collectively assumes a group identity with the purpose of participating in criminal activity. According to 18 U.S. Code § 521, a criminal street gang refers to an ongoing group, club, organization, or association of five or more people. The penalty for participation in a gang is up to five years of incarceration—that time can be increased by up to 10 years for any repeat offense.


If you are facing charges for involvement in an organized criminal body, including a drug cartel or an illegal gaming ring, you could potentially be imprisoned and thereby deprived of your freedom. If you do not know your constitutional rights, you could end up in even more trouble than necessary. Absolutely remember to maintain your silence, and make sure when you talk about your case it is only in the presence of an experienced lawyer.

Going Deeper into Gang Activity Prosecution

You are not alone if you are being charged with illegal gang activity. Organized crime is considered a global problem by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and is taken very seriously. Gangs are often made up of professional recruiters who make a profit luring in new people to carry out illegal activities for them. These gangs may be violent, and their kingpins think they cannot get caught and do not care if their employees face jail time for them. There is often an honor code within organized crime groups, and they can make members believe they are doing their duty by going down with the ship. Rats are punished from within and can be made to fear for their lives if they give away valuable information.
