LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) The Latin Kings street gang Texas' leader was a Lubbock man, who now possibly faces the death penalty. This Thursday attorneys for Jose Robledo Nava have permission from the Lubbock federal judge to travel to Washington D.C. at government expense. They'll meet with attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice and plead their case as to why prosecutors should not seek the death penalty.  

Nava is indicted on several charges including the carrying of a firearm to commit murder during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime.  The indictment says it was an AK-47, and in April an FBI dive team found parts of an AK-47 east of Crosbyton. Prosecutors blame the Latin Kings for a drive-by shooting last year in Big Spring that killed three people and injured three others.

Meanwhile three other Latin King members have pleaded guilty and now await sentencing from the federal judge in Lubbock.  Robert Allen Ramirez, 27, of Big Spring, Eduardo Daniel Mares, 21, of Seminole, and Gabriel Lee Gonzales, 21, of Fort Stockton could end up living out the rest of their lives in federal prison. They were each charged with carrying of a firearm to commit murder during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime. Those charges are related to the drive-by shooting in Big Spring.
