Reputed gang member gets 25 years in fatal stabbing
A suspected MS-13 gang member was sentenced today to 25 years in the stabbing death of a teenager.
Cristian Sandoval, 17, stabbed Zach Rosales last August in Westbury as the 16-year-old walked home from the movies.
Sandoval, a reputed gang member, called Rosales his "enemy" during the attack. Sandoval was convicted of manslaughter.
According to police, the victim wasn't even in a gang.
