Gang member gets 15-plus years for drug dealing

From Sandy Louey:

A Sacramento gang member was sentenced Thursday to more than 15 years in federal prison for dealing crack cocaine.

U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England sentenced Nicholas Rapier, 33, to 188 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release. He pleaded guilty to distributing crack cocaine on May 15, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Rapier, a validated member of the "G MOBB" street gang, has an extensive criminal history of felonies for drug trafficking and violent crimes.

Judge England said Rapier's sentence reflected the need for him to face to consequences of his poor decisions and his long history of committing serious offenses, according to the release.
