The leader of an MS-13 clique on Long Island pleaded guilty to murder and conspiracy charges this week.

The gang member was charged with ordering the murder of a 15-year old, which was then carried out.

He was also charged with planning the murder of an alleged fellow MS-13 gang member for being disloyal to the group.

The defendant admitted that he reported to gang leadership in El Salvador and the United States.

He is expected to be sentenced to 24 years to life in prison in 2020.

The head of Public Works for the City of Bridgeport has resigned almost a year after the FBI disclosed the department was the subject of an investigation.

John Ricci had been placed on leave after it came out that he let employees sell scrap and put the profits in a petty cash fund at the department. 

Hearst Connecticut Media reports two city workers also filed sexual harassment complaints against Ricci with the state.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim thanked Ricci for his service in a written statement. Ricci worked on Ganim’s re-election campaign this fall.
