SAN FRANCISCO — A judge has sentenced a second defendant to 10 years in prison in the shooting deaths of three San Francisco family members after one of them was mistaken for a rival gang member.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1Se7ckv) that 34-year-old Wilfred Reyes, a suspected leader of the MS-13 gang, received the sentence on Friday. Prosecutors believe Reyes was in the car when another alleged MS-13 member, Edwin Ramos, opened fire in 2008 on a car carrying 48-year-old Tony Bologna and his 20 and 16-year-old sons, Michael and Matthew.
The shooting drew attention to the city's sanctuary policy when it was revealed that Ramos had been shielded from deportation twice after he committed gang-related crimes as a minor. Ramos was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in 2012 and sentenced to life without parole.
