ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 20-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court to 25 years in federal prison for his role in at least two robberies last year at the Spenard Motel.
Gabriel Clark-Aigner, described as a member of a gang called Good Boys Trece Sorenos, pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and two counts of using a gun in connection with a crime.
He faced nearly 40 years in prison, but Judge John W. Sedwick reduced the sentence by almost 15 years because Clark-Aigner cooperated with prosecutors.
He testified against fellow gang members during the May trial of Timothy E. Beckett, Raymond Thiele and Daniel Troxel. Beckett and Thiele were convicted by a federal jury on multiple robbery and gun counts. They are set to be sentenced later this month. Troxel was acquitted of the three charges against him.
Clark-Aigner also was ordered to pay restitution of more than $2,600 to the Spenard Motel.
