ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A 23-year-old Maryland man has been sentenced to 35 years in federal prison for his role in a violent street gang prosecutors said preyed on the Hispanic community in Annapolis over a two-year period.
The Capital Gazette reports that Moises Alexis Reyes-Canales was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court. He pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise as part of MS-13 gang activities.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Reyes-Canales admitted that he participated in the murder of a suspected rival gang member and conspired and attempted to murder two victims in Annapolis.
He admitted being a member of MS-13 since March 11, 2016.
