Bronx Gang Member Gets Seven Years In Prison For Brutal Anti-Gay Attack
Nelson Falu, a member of the Latin King Goonies gang that in 2010 brutally attacked and sodomized two teen boys and a thirty year old-man, will serve seven years in prison for his role in the horrific crimes that took place in the Bronx, The New York Daily News reports:
Nelson Falu was among eight members of the "Latin King Goonies" who tortured and beat two teenage boys and a 30-year-old man over the course of several hours in a Bronx home, while using anti-gay slurs. Prosecutors say the gang members sodomized two of the men with a plunger, chained one to a chair, and used a cigarette lighter to inflict burns. Falu, 20, and two other participants, took guilty pleas in June. Falu, who copped to a robbery plea, declined to say anything before his sentencing, and his victims were not in court. Prosecutor Theresa Gottlieb told Bronx Supreme Court Justice Steven Barrett her office made the plea offer because the victims don't want to relive "the nightmare" on the witness stand. The cases against the other gang members are still pending.
