Gang Member Sentenced

An East Texas gang member, indicted nearly a year ago for participating in organized crime, will spend the next eight years of his life behind bars.

A federal judge in Tyler sentenced Juan Saucedo Friday to 96 months in prison  and ordered him to pay more than $30,000 in restitution.

Saucedo is a member of the notorious "East Side Locos", gang. He is one of 14 gang members charged with terrorizing people in Smith County. Five are awaiting sentencing and authorities are still looking for 2 others.
