Machine Gun, Heroin Dealer Nabbed in Undercover Santa Ana Gang Task Force Sting Gets Prison

Orange County heroin and machine gun dealer Luciano Borjas won a 10-year prison sentence after being caught in an undercover operation by the Santa Ana Gang Task Force (SAGTF) in 2009.

Borjas, already a convicted felon, unwittingly agreed to sell 121 grams of a substance containing heroin as well as machine guns, rifles and silencers to a confidential source working for the task force, according to federal records obtained by the Weekly.

In a January plea deal, the government dropped numerous charges in exchange for Borjas pleading guilty to distribution of heroin and possession of an unregistered firearm.

His defense attorney argued for leniency because Borjas allegedly grew up in "an unstable environment in a neighborhood filled with gang activity." His mother abandoned him when he was five years old and, post arrest, he claims he found the Lord.

Assistant United States Attorney Mark P. Takla urged a 120-month prison sentence--the low end of sentencing guidelines--and federal Judge James V. Selna agreed to the deal this month.

Borjas, who was born in 1975 and is a father to two young kids, has not yet been transferred to a federal prison.

I've known Luciano for a long time and he is a good person. We're nobody to judge him. He will come out a better man after all of this.

First of all if you people talking sh!t, don't know what was going on then don't sit there & judge Luciano on what you read on here. Most of the info on here is spiced up and changed some how. & And whatever he did is his own problem and he is manning up to it. F*ck sh!t talkers. Free the primo!

By what standard are you calling him a good man? You mean, because he hasn't lopped off the heads of 10 rival drug dealers, he is good?

Uhhh, not quite, David. Manning up, as you call it, wasn't done when he accepted what he can't change at--going to prison. Manning up actually would have been not doing multiple federal crimes in the first place, especially as the father of two youngsters.
