MS-13 MEMBER FROM REVERE PLEADS GUILTY
An MS-13 member pleaded guilty on Friday, Oct. 20, in federal court in Boston to racketeering conspiracy.
Henry Santos Gomez, a/k/a “Renegado,” 32, a Salvadoran national who resided in Revere, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, more commonly referred to as RICO conspiracy. U.S. District Court Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV scheduled sentencing for Jan. 16, 2018.
Santos Gomez was identified as a “homeboy,” or full member of MS-13’s Hollywood Loco Salvatrucha (HLS) clique. During the investigation, agents encountered Santos Gomez wearing MS-13 paraphernalia, secretly recorded conversations with Santos Gomez where he offered to provide protection to a cooperating witness who he believed was a drug dealer, and stopped Santos Gomez in the company of other MS-13 gang members.
After a three-year investigation, Santos Gomez was one of 61 persons named in a superseding indictment targeting the criminal activities of alleged leaders, members, and associates of MS-13 in Massachusetts. According to court documents, MS-13 was identified as a violent transnational criminal organization whose branches or “cliques” operate throughout the United States, including in Massachusetts. MS-13 members are required to commit acts of violence to maintain membership and discipline within the group. Specifically, MS-13 members are required to attack and murder gang rivals whenever possible.
Santos Gomez is the 21st defendant to plead guilty in this case.
According to the terms of the plea agreement, the parties agreed to recommend a sentence of six years in prison. Santos Gomez will be subject to deportation at the conclusion of his sentence.
