MS-13 Gang Member from Gaithersburg Gets 35 Years in Prison

A 26-year-old from Gaithersburg was sentenced to 35 years in prison for conspiring to be part of the racketeering enterprise known as MS-13 gang, a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday evening.

Oscar Ernesto Delgado-Perez, also known as “Complicado” and “Indio,” also took part in the June 16, 2016, murder of a victim that he and other MS-13 members believed to be a member of the rival 18th Street gang, according to the plea agreement.

The victim was lured to a wooded area within the Malcolm King Park in Gaithersburg, where he was stabbed several times, by Delgado-Perez and other co-conspirators. According to the autopsy report, the injuries to the victim included more than 150 sharp force injuries consisting of stab wounds, puncture wounds and cutting wounds.

Co-defendants Juan Carlos Espinal-Rapalo, 21; Daniel Adonai Ramos-Romero, 22; both of Gaithersburg; and Jose Augustin Salmeron-Larios, 26, of Severn, Maryland, have pleaded guilty to the racketeering conspiracy and other charges related to their MS-13 gang activity, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. They remain detained as they await sentencing.

Co-defendants Noe Coreas-Mejia, 22, of Hyattsville, Maryland, and Kevin Henriquez-Chavez, 24, of Washington Grove, also pleaded guilty to the racketeering conspiracy and were sentenced to 33 years and 30 years in federal prison, respectively, prosecutors said.

In addition, Delgado-Perez was charged with distributing marijuana and cocaine in Gaithersburg in 2016.

He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paula Xinis.

    It’s time for all governments to end the myopic, ineffective, counter-productive, hypocritical, racist and failed “War On Drugs.”

    There is no way this happened. Montgomery County Council has told me time and time again that there is no Gangs and no Gang members in the county. How could he be from Gaithersburg **SHOCKED**
