ALEXANDRIA, VAErick Turcios-Lazo, also known as Scorpion, age 22, was sentenced today to 120 months in prison to be followed by 3 years of supervised release. Turcios-Lazo was found guilty on Jan. 22, 2009. Dana J. Boente, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Joseph Persichini, Jr., Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by United States District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema.
Turcios-Lazo was indicted on Sept. 18, 2008, by a federal grand jury on conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering charges. The jury trial began on Jan. 13, 2009.
According to court documents, Turcios-Lazo is a member of MS-13 and had served as the leader of the Silvas Locos Salvatrucha (SLS) clique of MS-13. Beginning in the summer of 2007 and continuing through January 2008, Turcios-Lazo conspired with other persons to murder L.Q. A member of the SLS clique of MS-13, L.Q. was suspected by other gang members of cooperating with law enforcement. As a result, MS-13 put a green light on L.Q. A green light is a signal that the gang had approved the killing of someone suspected of cooperating with law enforcement. In and around January 2008, Turcios-Lazo attended general meetings of MS-13 where he and others discussed who would be responsible for carrying out the green light on L.Q.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and members of the Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force. Assistant United States Attorneys Morris R. Parker, Jr. and Benjamin L. Hatch are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States."

Crazy whistle Salvatrucha
Boy, 120 months. He’s lucky he didn’t get 10 years.
Seems like it would be cheaper to take the lad out in a field have him dig a hole and then terminate.
Meanwhile the noted Racketeer, Barney Frank, the Queee-ah from Massachusetts remains free
120 months is a joke to people like this. All this will do is build his street cred.
Firing Squad BUMP.
