Richmond Teen Gets 82 Years To Life For 2006 Murder

MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - A Richmond teenager is facing the prospect of the rest of his life in prison after being sentenced for a gang retaliation murder.

A judge sentenced 17-year-old Alexander Balbuena to 82 years to
life in prison Friday for the fatal shooting of a Richmond man in 2006.

Balbuena was 15-years-old at the time of the shooting.

Prosecutors say he shot 30-year-old Jose Segura in retaliation for another gang shooting.

After being tried as an adult, a jury convicted Balbuena in April of first-degree murder, attempted murder and street terrorism.

A second man is due to stand trial in September on the same charges.
