The Department of Justice says that the Latin Kings defeated — but not destroyed

The U.S. Department of Justice today published an official statement about the sentencing of Sergio M. Robles aka Cheko. 30-year-old Robles was convicted of drug trafficking, extortion, illegal possession of weapons and murder. The court sentenced him to 27 years imprisonment. Is it possible to put on this point in the case of the gang Latin Kings? Alas, but caught 21 the representative of the criminal group — not the whole gang.

 The Department of Justice says that the Latin Kings defeated — but not destroyed

Latin Kings or Latin Kings — the largest gang emerged in Chicago, but in effect in many States, including Texas and Indiana. The group included two former police officers. Today the court proved 19 murders committed by this group. The highest sentence received Anaya Martin: he was sentenced to 30 years.

According to the report of the Department of Justice, the investigation conducted jointly by the FBI, Bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives; the Control of narcotics; the Griffith police Department; the Chicago police Department; police Department East Chicago; police Department Hammond; the police Department of the highland; the Houston police Department and the police Department of Lubbock. The result was involved in the organized crime of the Department of Justice and the U.S. attorney’s office for the Northern district of Indiana.

The verdict Robles is a great success, which is now rightly proud of the law enforcement system. He pleaded guilty for participating in the murder of Jonathan Zimmerman in December 2003 in Hammond, Indiana, and the murder of Jose Cortez in East Chicago in Indiana in may 2008. Latin Kings suspected that Zimmerman was involved in a drug deal with counterfeit currency, and decided to kill him. Jose Cortez was shot by another defendant, due to suspicion of his belonging to a rival street gang. In addition, Robles was involved in a criminal conspiracy with intent to distribute 150 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.

However, the participants in the investigation have reason to believe that the gang was still unidentified persons who are not yet arrested, and so represent a danger.
