A 28-year-old Allentown man described as a founding member of the Latin Kings gang was sentenced to 28 years in federal prison today for his part in running a violent drug ring.
Luis Colon, founder of the Latin Kings' "Bethlehem Sun Tribe," pleaded guilty July 9 to racketeering conspiracy and related offenses.
Federal prosecutors said the gang also kidnapped, assaulted, and killed its own members for violating tribes rules.
Colon was among two dozen gang members charged in 2010.
Among the crimes attributed to Colon was a plot to kill New Jersey Latin King members.
