Gang Member in 'Mickey' Hernandez Murder Pleads Guilty

13:27 |

The suspect in the death of 15-year-old Miguel 'Mickey' Hernandez has pleaded guilty to charges of first degree murder and criminal gang activity. Boris Alfredo Juarez Ascencio, 19, of Fairfax, was in court this week for a jury trial, but changed his pleas from not guilty to guilty, according to a report on The charges stem from the stabbing death of Hernandez as he walked home from Osbourn High School to his home in Georgetown South in the fall of 2010.  Juarez Ascencio is described as a member of local gang MS-13, who fatally stabbed Hernandez in the chest because he thought he was a member of a rival gang. But Father Ramon Dominique, who heads the   Youth Apostles Institute’s Don Bosco Center after school program at the Georgetown South Community Center, said Hernandez was not involved in a gang. "He was trying to do what he could to get away from that," Father Ramon said. "He had become even more active with the local church community...and he was really doing good things." One year after his death—on Nov. 18 2011—the community center dedicated a new activity field to Hernandez because he loved to play soccer there with his friends and family. Another suspect is also facing murder and criminal gang participation charges pending in juvenile court, according to the report. Juarez Ascencio faces up to life in prison for the murder charge, and up to 10 years in prison for the criminal gang participation charge. He will go to sentencing on June 29.
