Two more members of the Barrio Azteca gang found out their fate on Thursday.

33-year-old Santos Almanza and 32-year-old Miguel Nieto were sentenced to 30 concurrent years for multiple charges.

Back in February, the two were convicted of intent to sell drugs and racketeering.

Six of their co-defendants in the case have already been convicted and sentenced.

Their sentences range from 33 months to 77 months.

There are also four more co-defendants scheduled to be sentenced over the next two weeks.
