leader of the Krazy Locos gang."He really manned up. I have to give him credit," he said. "You don't see many cases where somebody agrees to life in prison."

18:44 |

23-year-old who ordered murders and sold hand grenades, AK-47s and a plethora of drugs from his suburban Lantana home on Friday agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison to spare loved ones lengthy prison sentences.

Answering "Yes, sir" nonchalantly, acknowledging he knew he would be sentenced to a minimum of life plus 85 years in prison, Jonathan Gonzalez pleaded guilty to 11 felonies, including two counts of racketeering murder. In exchange for not fighting the charges, federal prosecutors agreed to push for concessions for his wife, a brother and a sister-in-law who he lured into the violence he masterminded as a leader of the Krazy Locos gang.

His brother, Christopher Gonzalez-Chamberlain, benefited immediately. Charged with racketeering murder along with dozens of other violent felonies, the 24-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

While it carries a maximum 20-year sentence, because his younger brother agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison, federal prosecutors said they would recommend an 11-year sentence for Gonzalez-Chamberlain.

Attorney Scott Sakin, who represents Gonzalez-Chamberlain, credited Gonzalez for taking the fall for his family.

"He really manned up. I have to give him credit," he said. "You don't see many cases where somebody agrees to life in prison."
