Mexican Mafia Boss In Southern California Heroin Trade Wins Big Prison Trip

A high-ranking Mexican Mafia operative heavily involved in distributing massive amounts of heroin in Southern California, ordering assaults, coaching new hoodlums and collecting street taxes was given new, taxpayer-funded housing this week.

Omar Vidal Briseno (a.k.a. "Lil Rambo") will recognize the bars, tight living space, lack of female presence and armed guards because on more than 15 prior occasions he's been sent to prison, including on state convictions for burglary, theft and narcotics offenses.

U.S. Probation office staff believe Briseno, who has never held a legitimate job, possesses no respect for the law and recommended a punishment of 175 months in prison for violating heroin distribution laws as well as his participation in a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations conspiracy (RICO).

A federal prosecutor, who noted the defendant refuses to renounce his allegiance to the Mexican Mafia and has not taken advantage of government-sponsored drug treatment programs, suggested the appropriate sentence should be incarceration for 140 months.

This week inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, U.S. District Court Judge James V. Selna granted the prosecutor's sentencing recommendation and imposed federal supervised probation of eight years after Briseno's eventual release back to society.

Selna also ordered Briseno, who was born in 1976, to never again associate with anyone in the Mexican Mafia, visit areas controlled by the gang, or wear any of the gang's "insignias, badges, buttons, caps, hats, jackets, shoes or any clothing that defendant knows evidence affiliation with the Mexican Mafia."

Jail records show that the defendant has not yet been transferred to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

He is ordered to "never again associate with anyone in the Mexican Mafia, visit areas controlled by the gang", then the first place he goes is to prison where he will spend the next 14 years associating with the Mexican Mafia in areas controlled by them. Send him as far away from his SoCal "family" as possible, like upstate NY. It's cold as hell there.


What prison is he going to be living in? I hope far far far away from the likes of THE OC. And where is he being held at this time.

Ecclesiastes 5 1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. 2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. 3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words. 4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. 6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands? 7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God. 8 If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. 9 Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.
