11/07/08 - Brother and sister San Manuel tribal leaders get probation for assassination plot

Author:

Two wealthy San Manuel tribal members who helped orchestrate a murder plot were sentenced Thursday to electronic monitoring and five years of supervised probation.

San Bernardino Superior Court Judge Michael M. Dest's sentencing of siblings Stacy Nunez-Barajas, 25, and Erik Barajas, 36, ended a two-year criminal case that rocked the San Manuel Indian Reservation and surprised police and federal drug agents, who learned of the murder conspiracy while investigating the Mexican Mafia's drug rackets in the San Bernardino area.
