08:44 |

member of the Krazy Locos criminal street gang of Lake Worth was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.
Manuel DeJesus Medina's sentence will be followed by a consecutive term of 420 months' imprisonment on charges related to two homicides committed in Palm Beach County during January and February 2009.
The charges against Medina and other gang members arose from a joint federal-state investigation into the Krazy Locos gang, which was operating throughout Palm Beach County, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
The news release said the Krazy Locos gang has been affiliated at times with another gang, the "Making Life Krazy" or "MLK" gang, which also operates in Palm Beach County. From 2007 through 2009, there were about 40 Krazy Locos gang members and associates, the U.S. Department of Justice said.
According to documents filed in court, the Krazy Locos made money through the sale of controlled substances, like oxycodone, Xanax, methadone, cocaine, crack and marijuana.
Medina was also charged for his involvement in two homicides.
On Aug. 6, 2010, Medina pleaded guilty to all charges and admitted that he was the person who shot and killed the two people. Department of Justice officials said Medina agreed to cooperate against the leaders of the gang and provided information regarding their involvement in the two homicides.
Medina was also ordered to pay $34,396.27 in restitution.
