If you are charged with a crime and determined to be a member of gang, the prosecution will seek a gang enhancement to elevate your potential punishment. The penalties for "participating in a gang" or for engaging in conduct "for the benefit of" a gang are harsh and often charged based on unreliable or slim evidence.
