Angel "Bravo" Pineda, 21, of Revere, was sentenced to 93 months in federal prison today after admitting involvement in a criminal conspiracy and for his role in a failed bid to kill a leader of a rival gang, the US Attorney's office reports.
Pineda, a Honduran national, will be deported after serving his sentence, the US Attorney's office reports.
Pineda is the latest of several dozen local MS-13 members to plead guilty and be sentenced following a local/federal sweep last year.
Authorities blame the gang members for several murders, including of teenagers in East Boston, that were aimed both at fighting the rival 18th Street gang and at serving as an initiation rite. The killings may have continued after the bust.
