Injunction To Restrict Temple Street Gang Members


Dec 30, 2008 1:53 pm US/Pacific

A preliminary injunction restricting the activities of Temple Street gang members was granted Tuesday by a judge.

The mostly Latino gang was founded in 1923 and its members, who have engaged in various crimes from street robberies to drug dealing, are currently at war with other local gangs, according to the City Attorney’s Office.

Seven of the gang’s approximately 250 members named in the complaint were present for the hearing.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe noted that those targeted had not filed any opposition to the civil action when he granted the injunction.

The order will go into effect in January 2009 and will apply to Temple Street gang members in an area just under a square mile west of downtown. Members will be prohibited from blankociating in public with other members, intimidating witnesses, and selling or possessing drugs or weapons, among other conditions.

One of the provisions of the order is a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew preventing gang members from being in the designated zone during that time.

However, gang members can seek permission from the City Attorney’s Office for exemptions from the curfew if they can show they have legitimate reasons to be on the streets during that time, such as going to and coming from work, attending a legitimate entertainment event or moving about in response to an emergency.

They also can ask to be spared from the rule regarding blankociation with other gang members if, for example, they live with other family members who also are in the gang.
