OMCG offences are often the subject of changing legislation. Mandatory periods of imprisonment apply to some offences and, mean that organised crime offences are not matters to be left to chance. It is imperative that you get proper advice and/or representation if you, or a loved one is charged with a OMCG or Organised and Serious Crime offence.
