High ranking L.A Mexican Mafia leader stabbed to death

Unread post by yoda100 » June 12th, 2020, 11:03 pm

A leader of the Mexican Mafia who controlled parts of Southern California from his prison cell was killed Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at a southern San Joaquin Valley prison. Danny Roman, 64, was stabbed multiple times in the body and face allegedly by two other inmates who ganged up on him at the Corcoran State Prison Substance Abuse Treatment Facility. Roman was serving a life sentence and was a ring leader of the Mexican Mafia who gave orders from his cell.

A news release from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said inmates Raul Alvarado and Edward Cisneros allegedly attacked Roman before Roman was taken to a prison medical facility and pronounced dead. Both Cisneros and Alvarado were placed in isolation pending an investigation. Two stabbing weapons were recovered from the crime scene, CDCR officials said. All three inmates are from Southern California.

Roman had been in prison since january 1985 after he was sentenced to life with out the possibility of parole for first degree murder in Los Angeles county. Roman, 64, was the leader of the Los Angeles Harpy's 13 street gang, and three years after being in prison, he was inducted into the Mexican Mafia. From there, he orchestrated criminal activity in vast areas of Los Angeles from various prisons. Roman's daughter, Vianna Roman, is serving a 15 year prison sentence after pleading in 2015 to acting as a proxy for her father's criminal orders for street gang's.

Danny Roman, 64, oversaw gang activity by giving orders that directed gang members to engage in criminal conduct, including the murder of rival gang members and Mexican Mafia members, and the extortion of businesses and other gangs to generate income that was funneled back to Danny Roman in state prison. Edward Cisneros, one of the two men accused of killing Roman, was also a Mexican Mafia member. Cisneros, 31, was convicted of attempted first degree murder in San Bernardino County and has been in prison for 7 years.

The other man, Raul Alvarado, 47, was convicted of second degree murder in Los Angeles County and has been imprisoned since February 1994.

This is from the Federal government:

Mexican Mafia Associate Sentenced to 17½ Years in Federal Prison for Ordering Murders and Assaults in Orange County Jail System




LOS ANGELES – A Mexican Mafia associate who ordered murders and assaults in Orange County’s jail system on the prison gang’s behalf was sentenced today to 210 months in federal prison for his racketeering conspiracy conviction.

Ramon Alvarez, 45, of Santa Ana, was sentenced by United States District Judge R. Gary Klausner. Alvarez pleaded guilty in June 2017 to one count of conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Alvarez admitted in his plea agreement that, from October 2008 until September 2013, he agreed to assist the Mexican Mafia while he was a jail inmate. Alvarez was given the power to place fellow inmates on “hard candy” or “green light” lists, which marked other inmates for murder or assault within the Orange County jail system.

In December 2011, Alvarez authorized a co-conspirator to stab and kill a jail inmate, according to court documents. In October 2012, Alvarez identified a jail inmate victim who was cooperating with law enforcement in another inmate’s murder trial, and other Mexican Mafia associates later assaulted that inmate at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange.

The prison gang’s Orange County faction was headed by Peter Ojeda, a longtime Mexican Mafia member who controlled Latino street gangs in Orange County for at least three decades. Ojeda was found guilty in 2016 of racketeering offenses and was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison, where he died in 2018 at the age of 76.

Ojeda was involved in the operation and management of the Mexican Mafia’s activities in Orange County, which included orchestrating murder schemes, extortion and narcotics trafficking. Ojeda ordered Latino street gangs in Orange County to pay “taxes” that consisted of a portion of the proceeds the gangs earned from various criminal activities, including drug trafficking. In return, gang members were permitted to exert influence over their neighborhoods and territories and seek protection or assistance from the Mexican Mafia.

Alvarez was one of 25 defendants named in a RICO indictment brought as part of Operation “Smokin’ Aces,” which was a multi-agency operation that targeted the Orange County wing of the Mexican Mafia and led to charges against more than 80 defendants in federal court. In total, prosecutors have secured 76 convictions in these cases.

The investigation was jointly conducted by special agents of the Santa Ana Gang Task Force, which consisted of agents and officers with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Santa Ana Police Department; the Orange County Sheriff’s Department; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation-Special Service Unit.

These cases were prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel H. Ahn of the Santa Ana Branch Office.
