Reputed gang leader goes on trial in San Jose federal courtroom - San Jose Mercury News

07:24 |

Reputed gang leader goes on trial in San Jose federal courtroom - San Jose Mercury News: "35-year-old Anh The Duong sat placidly as Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawna Yen described him as the force behind the criminal organization. 'He led,' Yen told jurors. 'He was the linchpin.'
Federal prosecutors have charged Duong in a sweeping racketeering indictment that includes links to murders in San Jose and Fremont, as well as the murders of four people in an El Monte pool hall in 1999. A Southern California jury already put Duong on California's death row for the El Monte murders, but the U.S. Justice Department is nevertheless pushing the racketeering charges and seeking the death penalty in the federal case, which could lead to a swifter execution date in the federal system if he is convicted.
Duong's trial marks just the second time in the past 50 years that a defendant has faced the death penalty in a Bay Area federal courtroom, the other ending last summer in a life-in-prison verdict for a Western Addition gang leader who stood trial in San Francisco. U.S. District Judge Jeremy Fogel needed nearly three months to seat a jury able to commit to the six-month Duong trial."
