Engaging in Organized Crime

Hector and Michael*

Hector and Michael are brothers who were accused of assaulting one of Hector's classmates as a part of a gang initiation. The teachers called the police when they saw the classmate's bloody nose; the classmate, however, always maintained that he had been goofing around with Hector but that neither Hector nor his brother had assaulted him. After months of negotiation with the prosecutor, he finally agreed that he could not make a criminal case with an uncooperative victim and no additional witnesses. He agreed to dismiss both of their felony cases.
