BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A federal judge in Idaho has sentenced an Oregon man to 10 years in prison for attempted murder stemming from gang activity in both states.
U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge also ordered 24-year-old Jessie Rodriquez of Ontario, Ore. to serve three years of supervised release and pay $4,000 in fines.
Prosecutors say Rodriquez is a member of the Brown Magic Clica gang, which has been involved in drugs and weapons trafficking in Idaho and eastern Oregon. Rodriquez admitted to firing shots into a crowd gathered in Parma, Idaho in July 2006 for a baby's baptism.
He was also convicted of attempted murder of a rival gang member for his role in a separate shooting in Ontario in July 2006 and threatening others with a knife in Payette, Idaho in 2010.
