A former 10th Street Gang member could be released soon because of his guilty plea Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Johnathan Serrano, 23, pleaded guilty to a marijuana distribution charge that carries a recommended maximum sentence that is shorter than the time he’s already spent in jail.

Defense lawyer Cheryl Meyers-Buth said Serrano, 23, will likely be released soon.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Tripi said Serrano, who has been in jail for 49 months, is facing a recommended sentence of up to 46 months.

His plea agreement is the result of an investigation by the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force.
