"Gerald has known the gangs when they were in the slammer and out of the slammer," said Robert Solo, producer of the film starring Robert Duvall and Sean Penn. "He really made a difference--he was the main person who made it possible for us to film in gang-dominated neighborhoods."

Orange County district attorney investigators watched the admitted killer of a strip-club owner collect $3,000 for the hit last year, then let him keep the money while he was working for them undercover, an investigator testified Monday.
