10th Street gang member sent to prison for conspiracy

Nourooz Ali, 21, a member of the notorious 10th Street Gang was ordered Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to serve an 11 year Federal prison term on his conspiracy conviction for his work with the gang that used to terrorize Buffalo’s West Side.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Trip said that Ali from 2000 to 2010 was an active member of the gang involved in violence, firearms and the sale of marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine and other controlled substances on the West Side. He is the 44th member or associate of that gang to be convicted so far.
