Criminal Practice – Murder & Racketeering — Evidence – Gang Expert (access required)

U.S. v. Palacios A defendant who served as “first word” for a local “clique” of the transnational gang La Mara Salvatrucha cannot overturn his murder and racketeering-related convictions for the murder of a woman who had contacts with rival gang members; the 4th Circuit approves the use of testimony from a police expert on gangs as an element of the case against defendant.
