 nine alleged members and associates of the Pimps, Players, Hustlers and Gangsters street gang appeared before Judge Michael A. Smith on Friday to determine if their case was ready to go to trial in San Bernardino Superior Court. Prosecutors announced new charges were filed earlier this week against Dearnaz Lorenzo Wilson, after he allegedly attacked the informant - the prosecution's sole witness in the conspiracy case - on Oct. 5. "The confidential informant in this case was assaulted in jail," explained Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem, outside of the court proceedings. The injuries suffered by the informant were not immediately available. Authorities reportedly have a letter, intercepted by deputies in the jail, which identifies the informant and the individual who was supposed to "take care of" that person, said Selyem. Wilson's attorney, Marjorie Barrios, did not appear at the hearing, and Wilson was temporarily represented by another attorney. In the new, separate case, Wilson was charged with one felony count of intimidating or dissuading a witness. If convicted, he could face up to life in state prison, Selyem said. He will be arraigned Tuesday. Meanwhile, three other defendants Advertisement in the case - Edward Jermaine Lair, Henry Alfred Duffey and Jermaine Lee Brodie - took plea bargains and will be sentenced Dec. 2. Lair pleaded guilty to participating in a criminal street gang, and he admitted having a prior strike. He faces a four-year prison term and has become a "two-striker." Duffey pleaded guilty to being an accessory to a crime, and he admitted to a sentence enhancement of being a participant in a criminal street gang. He will be sentenced to five years in state prison. Brodie will be sentenced to two years in state prison, after he pleaded guilty to participating in a criminal street gang. PPHG became well-known in San Bernardino after 13 members or associates were convicted in the 2005 shooting that killed 11-year-old Mynisha Crenshaw and wounded her older sister. The gang sought out members of a rival gang at a San Bernardino apartment complex, and the girls became unintended victims after guns were fired into their apartment. In this newer case, San Bernardino police say the nine defendants were arrested on March 28 and 29 on suspicion of conspiring at a San Bernardino apartment to kill two members of rival street gangs. The men made an agreement to kill the pair, collected weapons and went to their vehicles to carry out the plan, prosecutors allege in a criminal complaint filed in Superior Court. Lawyers for two other defendants in the conspiracy case, Damron Dupree Coleman and Albert Marvin Brodie, declared a conflict after learning they had represented the informant in other matters. "I didn't realize that until two to three days ago. I was advised of that by my office," lawyer Andrew Haynal, who represents Albert Brodie, said in court. The other lawyer was Janice Kuhr. Coleman and Albert Brodie return to court Thursday to get new lawyers. The remaining defendants in the case are Khaalis Batch Atkins, Salathiel Rodriguez Mathis and Willie Shante Brown. The defendants come back to court Nov. 9 to assign the case for a jury trial on Nov. 15. The judge said he may consider splitting up the defendants, if the new lawyers need to more time to prepare for trial.
