In a case focusing on what prosecutors called a new breed of street gang in suburbia, a jury Wednesday convicted four members of the Slick 50s --so-called for their 1950s hairstyles and clothing--and a 21-year-old associate of attempted murder. The teenagers were tried as adults, and all five were convicted on additional counts of assault with a deadly weapon. The sentences carry additional years because the crime was committed by a criminal street gang.

Joshua Carlsen, 25, agreed to plead guilty after Judge Robert R. Fitzgerald said he would sentence him to five years in prison. The sentence is scheduled to be imposed next month.

A judge on Friday threw out the most serious charges against three teenage members of a South County "bully gang" in connection with the near-fatal stabbing of another teen but ruled that the adult who wielded the knife should spend 11 years in prison. Members of the "Slick 50s" gang were convicted of attempted murder last year and classified by the jury as a terrorist street gang. But Superior Court Judge Robert R.

Four South County teenagers and a 21-year-old charged in last summer's near-fatal stabbing of an Aliso Viejo youth were members of a nontraditional street gang that had been increasingly active for months before the attack, a prosecutor said in court Thursday. That is the crux of the case against members of the so-called Slick 50's who are facing charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and gang membership in the Aug. 11 fight, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Marc Kelly.

A Laguna Niguel man facing a second trial for attempted murder in a "bully" gang attack on a teen pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced to five years in prison. Jesse Grist, 20, pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the Aug. 11, 1998, knife-and-bottle attack on Galen Thorne, who needed more than 40 stitches in his head. Grist's first conviction was thrown out last year after an appeals court found that the trial judge made disparaging remarks to Grist's defense attorney.

A Slick 50s gang member whose attempted-murder conviction was overturned on appeal was sentenced Friday to five years in prison as part of a deal that avoided another trial. Joshua Carlsen, 25, pleaded guilty in May to the 1998 beating and stabbing of an Aliso Viejo teen at a party. Defense attorney Allan Stokke said Carlsen would serve less than a year in prison with credit for time served. In 2000, an Orange County Superior Court judge sentenced Carlsen to 11 years in prison.
