ORANGE COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY PRESS RELEASE
Date: November 16, 2015
*These are the 14th and 15th gang injunctions in Orange County
SANTA ANA, Calif. – Two violent criminal street gangs in the City of Placentia have been preliminarily enjoined from terrorizing the community and acting as a public nuisance, marking the 14th and 15th injunctions to be brought against Orange County gangs. There were 51 participants served between Sept. 30, 2015, and Oct. 7, 2015, in English and Spanish with a notice of how to be heard in court before being enjoined, the participants’ rights, and how to remove themselves from the injunction.

Deputy District Attorney Lisa Grossman and Sayge Castillo of the GRIP/Gang Injunctions Unit prepared the injunction on behalf of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Continue reading
