3 gang members get prison terms
Three street gang members were sentenced Friday in federal court to prison sentences of 16, 15 and five years for a 2005 drive-by shooting in San Marcos in which a 12-year-old boy was wounded in the chest.
The three were members of the Varrio San Marcos gang and attempting to kill members of the rival South Los gang in a territorial dispute over drug trafficking and extortion, according to court records.
Cedar Moedano, 31, also known as Snoop, was sentenced to 16 years; Leon Rossetto, 25, also known as Casper, to 15; and Geovani Bernal, 22, also known as Blackie, to five. All had pleaded guilty.
