Prosecutors oppose parole for female gang member

LARRY WELBORN (THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER) | August 23, 2011

An Orange County prosecutor will oppose parole for a La Habra woman who has spent the past 19 years in prison after she became the first female gang member convicted of murder for a gang-related slaying in 1992.

Gabriella Maldonado, who is now 36, was convicted by an Orange County jury of first-degree murder and sentenced to 25 years and four months in prison for her role in the shotgun death of Leo Huichocez, also known as Huricochea, a 16-year-old San Diego youth who was gunned down in a La Habra alley Feb. 12, 1991.

Maldonado was one of four members of a street gang who went looking for vengeance because rival gang rivals had vandalized her father’s car, according to news accounts in 1992. The group hijacked a car at the point of a shotgun and drove into the rival gang’s territory searching for victims, the news accounts show.
