West Sacramento Safety Zone
WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - After a lengthy legal fight and 54-day trial last year, a Yolo County judge has issued a final injunction judgement against a West Sacramento gang.
Judge Kathleen White ruled the Broderick Boys is a criminal street gang that has created a public nuisance in West Sacramento and caused harm to those in live in a designated section of the city.
In her ruling, White made a temporary injunction imposing activity restrictions and a curfew within a "safety zone" on the Broderick Boys permanent for seven years. At that time, White said local law enforcement should be able to manage gang activity so that the injunction would no longer be necessary.
The Safety Zone is bounded by Harbor Boulevard on the west, the Sacramento River on the north and east, and by the Capital City Freeway and State Route 275 to the south. One area within the zone but not included in it is the Lighthouse Marina and Golf Course property.
The Safety Zone also extends 100 yards outside of its designated borders.
In the Safety Zone the Broderick Boys are prohibited from:
Associating with other gang members in public
Producing graffiti or possessing items used to produce graffiti
Possessing drugs or alcohol
Trespassing on private property.
Violating a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.
Breaking any law.
The injunction has been in place since 2005.
The California Third District Court of Appeals previously upheld the temporary injunction.
