You do not have to be a member of an infamous gang to be charged with organized crime in Texas. You don't even have to know the identities of the other participants in the alleged crime. All that is required for the State to charge you with organized crime is evidence that three or more people have collaborated in carrying out a criminal activity.
At the Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., I provide clients with aggressive criminal defense representation against serious charges such as organized crime or racketeering. I have extensive experience defending the rights of the accused, in addition to a background as a former prosecutor. The years I spent representing the state of Texas in prosecuting crimes makes me well prepared to develop a strategy for fighting for your rights, due to the fact that I know where to look for weaknesses in the evidence and can take aggressive action on your behalf.
in the Seriousness of Texas Laws
When you are charged with organized crime in Texas, you are susceptible to enhanced penalties. This means that you can be punished more for being part of a criminal conspiracy than if you had acted alone. Organized crime can be as serious as a first-degree felony, for which you can spend the rest of your life in prison.
Organized crime is a very complex area of the law. If you are charged with organized crime, don't entrust your rights and your freedom to a lesser experienced attorney. You will need a tenacious lawyer with extensive knowledge of Texas law. Whether your charges involve major manufacturing and delivery of controlled substances,
bribery and corruption, or any other type of offense, I am ready to help. Call or visit now for a free confidential consultation.
