Assisting A Criminal Gang

Arizona laws are tough if a crime is committed and considered to be “gang-related.” For one thing, you do not have the option of a reduced sentence and in the case of felony convictions, the penalty will be increased by three years. Also, gang-related crimes are tougher to obtain a pardon ,release or suspended sentence from. However, the Canterbury Law Group is on your side and will work with you to get the best possible outcome.

Resisting Arrest

Resisting arrest includes arguing, stepping back, pulling your hands away or any other action law enforcement considers as “resisting arrest.” It is a serious charge and may have an impact on how you are treated in court. Often the individual is trying to comprehend what is going on and this leads to a charge of resisting arrest. If you physically struggle, a charge of assault may be added.
