Twelve alleged members were indicted by a federal grand jury in October 2005, and U.S. District Judge William Alsup has now sentenced 11 of them to prison.In a court filing urging the judge to accept the plea agreement, attorney Tony Tamburello described Diaz's upbringing in the squalor and violence of Sunnydale while his mother drank, used drugs and was periodically hospitalized or imprisoned.
