New Gang Injunction Up For First Court Date After Approval

In the wake of a judge’s approval of a new gang injunction in Santa Ana, a court hearing on the case is expected this coming week.

Prosecutors say the Townsend Street gang has committed a litany of crimes in recent years, ranging from two murders and two attempted murders, to eight incidents of graffiti/possession of vandalism tools.

Defense attorneys, who appeared on behalf of some of the people alleged to be active participants in the Townsend Street gang, have taken issue with the DA’s assertion that the level of violence in the neighborhood merited what they described as drastic measures.

The status conference is scheduled for Judge Franz E. Miller’s courtroom, Department C14, on Wednesday at 9 a.m.
