OAKLAND, Calif. — A Union City gang member found guilty of trying to kill an undercover Fremont police officer will spend at least six decades, and most likely the rest of his life, in prison, a judge declared Friday.
Calling the crimes committed by Andrew Barrientos "callous and hideous," Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Horner sentenced the 21-year-old to 68 years to life in prison for the 10 felony crimes he was found guilty of last month. Barrientos will not be eligible for parole until he is 83.
