Two brothers, who are members of the Latin Kings street gang in Newburgh, were found guilty in federal court in White Plains on drug and gun possession charges.

16:29 | , ,

Felix and Kelvin Lagares were each found guilty on Monday of conspiring to distribute crack cocaine, heroin, cocaine and marijuana, and using, carrying and possession firearms during their drug conspiracy.

The two were convicted after a two-week federal trial. They are two of 33 members and associates of the Newburgh Latin Kings charged in connection with the case, 18 of whom have been convicted.

The brothers each face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison for the drug conspiracy count and five years for the firearms count, for a total of at least 15 years when sentenced next May.

The trial of the Lagares brothers was the first of three trials scheduled in the case. Seven defendants charged with racketeering and other crimes are scheduled for trial next June and eight others, who are charged with murder in aid of racketeering, and other crimes, are scheduled for trial in January 2013. Sixteen other defendants have pled guilty to narcotics conspiracy and gun possession charges.
