Prison for Calif. anti-gang worker who worked for gang

From the Associated Press:

A Los Angeles anti-gang intervention worker has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for a burglary he admitted was done for the benefit of a street gang.
Marlo "Bow Wow" Jones and three co-defendants pleaded no contest to residential burglary Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court in the robbing of rapper Bryon McCane, also known as Bizzy Bone. McCane raps with the group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
Prosecutors say the men beat McCane in his Universal City hotel room last January and stole his jewelry.
When he was arrested, Jones was listed as a contract employee with Unity One, a subcontractor under the city's gang intervention program.
His co-defendants were sentenced to six to 19 years each.
