Mexican Mafia Boss Gets Life In Prison

March 07, 2013  | 

A Mexican Mafia prison gang member and longtime leader of the Puente Trece gang was sentenced Wednesday to life in federal prison after his conviction for racketeering that includes murder plots and a brutal stabbing of an inmate designed to deter victims from cooperating with police.

Rafael "Cisco" Munoz-Gonzalez, 42, of La Puente controlled Puente-13 before he became a member of the Mexican Mafia and operated a large portion of the drug market in the east San Gabriel Valley, federal prosecutors say.

U.S. District Court Judge Howard Matz sentenced him to life in prison a day after sentencing his brother, Mexican Mafia member Cesar "Blanco" Munoz-Gonzalez, 38, of Rowland Heights to the same life term. Neither will be eligible for parole in the federal prison system.
