GRAND RAPIDS, MI (WHTC) -- One of the Holland Latin Kings members was in U.S. District Court on Tuesday to be sentenced for his part in gang activity. Uvaldo Ruiz had turned himself in in April and was sentenced to three and one half years in prison on charges of assault with a deadly weapon in aid of racketeering activity. Ruiz had started with the Latin Kings in 2004, when he was only 12-years-old. He is one of 31 suspected gang members facing federal grand jury indictments.
