MS-13 member gets 13 years for stabbing rival gang member 21 times and trying to kill one of his own

Menjivar

A federal judge today sentenced Daniel "Roca" Menjivar, 22, to 13 years in prison for repeatedly stabbing a rival gang member and plotting to kill a fellow MS-13 member he thought was cooperating with the feds, the US Attorney's office in Boston reports.

After he gets out of prison, Menjivar, a Salvadoran national who was a member of the Chelsea based Enfermos Criminales Salvatrucha MS-13 group, will be subject to deportation.

Menjivar pleaded guilty in September to involvement in RICO-related activities, including a May 29, 2014 attack on a rival gang member in Chelsea in which he stabbed the victim and another MS-13 member shot him. The man was rushed to a local hospital and survived. According to the US Attorney's office:

A cooperating witness recorded Menjivar admitting to the attempted murder on video, proudly telling his fellow gang members how he stabbed the victim 21 times.

Also:

In April 2015, federal agents used a cooperating witness to make other recordings in which Menjivar and two other MS-13 members plotted to murder another MS-13 member who they incorrectly believed was cooperating with law enforcement.

Menjivar was one of 61 people rounded up in local and federal raids aimed at MS-13 in 2016.

I'm sure he'll never try doing something like tbat again.

I'm not usually one to complain about light sentences, but this is a really bad man. Even assuming he serves the whole 13 years, he'll be 35 when he comes out. A 35-year-old hardened criminal, who's spent the last dozen years lifting weights and studying the criminal trades -- sounds like someone I don't want loose in society. Maybe keep him locked up until he's too old to be an effective menace?

When he gets out, he'll be deported, meaning he'll be another country's problem then.

Conversely, maybe he'll change in prison. Probably not, but I gotta be positive.
