A 20-year-old Oxnard man has become the first member of the Colonia Chiques gang to be sentenced under a controversial court order, Ventura County authorities said Friday.
Raymond Guillen Morales was sentenced to 20 days in jail after pleading no contest Thursday to violating the order by trespassing and possessing a knife and an open container of alcohol within Oxnard's 6.6-square-mile "safety zone."
The injunction bars Chiques members from a range of activities, including associating with each other and wearing gang attire, in neighborhoods that police say are terrorized by gang violence.
Police have served 40 Chiques members with papers notifying them of the injunction, said Karen Wold, a Ventura County deputy district attorney. Since the injunction was issued June 1, seven have been arrested on various charges.
