|Glenda's Bail Bonds|
Cervantes was convicted in September of second degree murder and gang sentencing enhancements for gunning down Manuel Raul Orozco after a stare-down contest near Friendship Park and the 17-year-old's Santa Ana home.
Cervantes will serve his sentence at the Orange County Youth Authority until he reaches age 18, at which point he will be transferred to a state prison.
Meanwhile, Jolly quotes Orange County Superior Court Judge William Froeberg, who handed down the sentence, lamenting, "It's like somebody keeps poking a wound that doesn't heal. It only gets worse. Every time I have someone like Mr. Cervantes, it just aggravates me more. Children keep killing children for the stupidest reasons in the world. His family is ruined. The decedent's family is ruined."
