A member of the MS-13 street gang who was convicted of federal racketeering charges was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt yesterday to 35 years in prison, U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said. U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow also ordered that Edgar A. 'Pony' Ayala, 29, be supervised for five years after his release.
In November, a federal jury in Greenbelt convicted Ayala, of Suitland, of charges that include conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering.
