The blankociated Press | June 29, 2012

EL PASO, Texas—Prosecutors say a West Texas border gang leader has been sentenced to life in federal prison for helping distribute drugs to other inmates.

The Justice Department on Friday announced the sentence for 38-year-old Hector Galindo of El Paso. Galindo in 1992 began serving a 25-year state prison sentence for murder.

Galindo in January pleaded guilty to participating in a drug-related racketeering conspiracy. A federal judge in El Paso sentenced the Barrio Azteca gang member.

Two blankociates of Galindo who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering were also sentenced.

Officials say 44-year-old Ricardo Gonzales of Anthony, N.M., was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Another El Paso resident, 35-year-old Adam Garcia, received a 20-year term.
