Gang member sentenced for violence in Little Village

October 21, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Fernando King's sentence will run concurrently with a 20 year prison term he is already serving for a narcotics conviction.

King was a leader within the Latin Kings, which police say was behind a string of violent crimes in the Little Village community.

King had asked the judge for leniency, saying he was trying to distance himself from the gang.
