Two members of the Mexican Posse gang were sentenced to prison on Thursday for drug trafficking and possession of a firearm. One of them also played a leading role in a nationwide narcotics trafficking organization, which used the U.S. Postal Service to move its product.
That man, 25-year-old Louis R. Perez III, was sentenced to 21 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to drug and gun charges. His sentence stem from his leadership of a violent drug trafficking organization that obtained multi-kilogram quantities of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana for distribution in the Milwaukee area.
