Murderous, International Cocaine Dealer in Mexican Mafia Gets Punished in OC
|Rolando Ontiveros: Didn't exactly get leniency at sentencing|
Law enforcement intelligence placed Ontiveros in Mexico and living as a wealthy businessman.
In 2009, federal agents nabbed the fugitive, longtime leader of the Lott Stoners 13 street gang hiding in a pot-growing house in LA.
Three years later inside the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse an Orange County jury found him guilty on all 10 charges.
Since February, Ontiveros has been waiting to officially learn his fate.
This month, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter in Santa Ana rendered punishment after listening to a federal prosecutor describe the defendant's "horrific" conduct and unrepentant attitude.
Once the 39-year-old and onetime Cal State LA business student dies in prison in this life and returns to serve another full life term, he'll still owe society another 300 months of incarceration.
Ontiveros--who became a natty-dressing, multimillionaire in the underworld--remains in the custody of U.S. marshals inside the Santa Ana Jail, but will soon take his one-way trip to a federal prison.
