Thats how long Antonio Neftali Urrutia-Barrera, 20, of Reston, will spend in federal prison after being sentenced March 19 for two of the many crimes he either committed or is accused of committing in late summer and early fall 2008.
One of those crimes was a triple shooting in Sterling Park that left a Loudoun resident paralyzed from the waist down.
During a period of a little more than two months, Urrutia-Barrerawho is in the country illegally from Central Americaspent time in three Virginia counties and one Maryland county.
His crimes left at least four innocent bystanders injured. They also highlight how gangs sometimes work in one area for months and then move to a new region as members try to elude capture. While law enforcement has begun to curtail MS-13 crime in Northern Virginia, according to a 2009 FBI report, the gang has spread into southern Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia.
Urrutia-Barreras crimes were committed while the gang was more active in Loudoun and Fairfax.
A violent beginning
Federal court documents say Urrutia-Barrera, also known as Lil Duende, joined MS-13 as an associate member in 2006 at the age of 16. He was jumped in as a full member in 2008 when he was 18. Jumping in is a ritual in which three current MS-13 members kick and punch an associate member for 13 seconds to initiate him or her as a full member.
Once he became a full member, it didnt take Urrutia-Barrera long to get involved in attacking people he perceived to be members of the 18th Street gang, MS-13s rival.
Gang members are encouraged to carry out crimes against 18th Street members when they see them.
Court documents show that MS-13 has two cliques that work together in the region.

You answered your own question.
MS-13 soon to receive free health care.
MS-13 soon to be amnestied.
tatoo’d perp pic?
More people need to wake up to the seriousness of this situation. These people have effectively destroyed inner-city area and are spreading everywhere. Many innocent people WILL die over and over.
No, he's serious. And stop calling him Shirley.
Well, not the same people. ;-)
“MS-13 soon to receive free health care......MS-13 soon to be amnestied”
Did you know that John McCain actually introduced legislation a couple years ago that provided health care in MEXICO?
MUST SEE!! The Flush the John Song has gone viral and is on YOU TUBE! Exposes the REAL John McCain.
WTF! I last lived in northern Virginia 12 years ago and even then I was reading stories about how law enforcement was cracking down on MS-13.
Haven't made much headway, have they?
This isn’t even in a border state, but the stately suburbs of Washington, D.C. It’s alarming, to say the least.
These gangs have spread from Democrat-controlled Arlington, Falls Church and Fairfax (which was run by that great fascist Rep. Gerald Connelly) outward to Loudon westward to W. Va.
Well people, you got what you voted for, Democrats and amnesty, gangs and violence.
Time to introduce the death penalty for those who attempt to kill others in cold blood.
Ah, home crap home.
You make a good point. Where did your cheerful user name come from?
We have our lawns cut cheaper.
Our homes painted cheaper.
Our pools cleaned cheaper.
A win-win for everyone!
