Judge lays stiff terms on convicted gang murderers

Two men convicted in the gang murder of an innocent south Sacramento teenager who was walking to his bus stop on Mack Road to go to school were sentenced today to stiff prison terms.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Russell L. Hom imposed a life sentence with no chance of parole on Robert Maurice Hunt, 20, the gunman convicted of first-degree in the March 17, 2010 shooting death of Marque Alexander Johnson, 17. Hunt also received an additional 25-to-life term for use of the gun.

Hom sentenced co-defendant Kalief Raheem Taylor, also 20, who was convicted of second-degree murder, to a 40-to-life term. The sentencing on third defendant Marquice Devon Wallace was continued to April 13.
