Forming Kaos Gangsters Win Lengthy Prison Trips in Mexican Mafia Conspiracies

A federal judge in Orange County has sentenced two members of Forming Kaos (FK), the Costa Mesa-based criminal street gang, to lengthy prison trips for participating in conspiracies that benefited the notorious Mexican Mafia.
Douglas Joseph Jackovich and Kirk Ray Butterfas, both 30 years old, won’t see freedom for awhile.
U.S. District Court Judge James V. Selna could have sentenced Jackovich (AKA “Temper” and “DJ”) to 175 months in prison but gave him a 75-month reduction because the gangster pleaded guilty to prosecutors prior to a trial and has taken “Attitude for Success” and “Effective Parenting” classes while in jail.
The methamphetamine dealer, who has a long criminal history dating back to the age of 13, tried to claim that he played minor criminal drug dealing roles, but that stance was rejected by U.S. Department of Justice officials familiar with the case.
