Two former Fresno gang members have been sentenced to prison after they were convicted of inking a gang tattoo on a 7-year-old boy.
The sentences were part of plea deals that Gonzalez and Gorman accepted after jurors found them not guilty of aggravated mayhem and deadlocked on lesser felony charges. An aggravated mayhem conviction could have led to life in prison.
Jurors said they didn't believe the boy when he testified that Gonzalez held him down on a couch last year when Gorman inked the gang tattoo -- a small dog paw -- on his hip.
The pleas allowed Gonzalez and Gorman to avoid a second trial.
