District Attorney Erik Nasarenko Opposes Changes to California’s Gang Law
For decades, Ventura County prosecutors have relied upon and utilized the Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention Act, a California law that increases penalties when gang members commit crimes.
If ...passed, a bill currently before the California legislature would reduce our prosecutors’ discretion and significantly erode their ability to introduce gang evidence at trial. Please join me and the California District Attorneys Association in opposing this proposed law, Assembly Bill 333. https://vcda.us/3jWf9To
Gang members fundamentally undermine our schools and neighborhoods by creating fear, imposing violence and extorting vendors and businesses for money. We need to maintain strong gang prevention laws to ensure that Ventura County communities and families remain safe.
