Peter “Sana” Ojeda, reputed godfather of the Mexican Mafia in Orange County, was sentenced Monday to 15 years in federal prison for federal racketeering charges.

United States District Judge James V. Selna said that Ojeda, despite being 74, still represented a “danger to the community,” according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

In January, Ojeda was convicted on one count each of racketeering and committing violent crimes to support a racketeering conspiracy.

The jury found that Ojeda was involved in the operation of Mexican Mafia activities in Orange County, which included conspiring to commit murder, extortion and narcotics trafficking.
