There is an update to the sadistic gay-bashing gang initiation that took place in an abandoned Bronx, New York building in October 2010. Twenty-year-old Nelson Falu has been sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in the attacks, reports the Daily News.
Nelson Falu [seen above] was among eight members of the "Latin King Goonies" who tortured and beat two teenage boys and a 30-year-old man over the course of several hours in a Bronx home, while using anti-gay slurs. Prosecutors say the gang members sodomized two of the men with a plunger, chained one to a chair, and used a cigarette lighter to inflict burns.
Falu and two other participants took guilty pleas in June. Falu, who copped to a robbery plea, declined to say anything before his sentencing, and his victims were not in court.
The eight defendants are accused of a brutal gang assault over October 3 and 4 2010 on a 30-year-old gay man and two 17-year-old gang recruits that had sex with him. The thugs also allegedly broke into the gay man's home, robbing and beating his 40-year-old brother.
The defendants were charged with gang assault, sexual assault, robbery, weapons possession and menacing—all as hate crimes, which increase the penalties. The cases against the other gang members are still pending.
