Penal Code 182.5

According to the police, Aaron Harvey is a gang member and a criminal. But to his community and family, he is just a young man trying to survive in a neighborhood riddled with violence. San Diego District Attorney is using an obscure criminal statute to prosecute Aaron along with other young men who have been labeled as “gang members”. Because of their associations, they are supposedly guilty of “conspiracy” in crimes that they did not commit.
