Nuestra Familia Gang Member Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison in Cocaine Trafficking Conspiracy

United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced today that Bismark Martin Ocampo, 40, of San Francisco, was sentenced today to 28 years in prison for conspiring to distribute cocaine.

This case is the product of an extensive investigation by the FBI's Stockton Violent Crime Task Force, the San Joaquin County Metropolitan Narcotics Task Force, the Stockton Police Department, the Salinas Police Department, the Watsonville Police Department, the Monterey County Sheriff's Department, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Assistant United States Attorneys Jason Hitt and William S. Wong are prosecuting the case.

According to court documents, from the summer of 2006 until June 2007, Ocampo worked with the Nuestra Familia to traffic cocaine in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Nuestra Familia (NF) is a violent Hispanic prison gang based within the California prison system whose members exert control over street-level Norteño gang members engaged in drug trafficking and violent crime. This investigation revealed that NF members and associates were responsible for distributing large amounts of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, and Ecstasy throughout the Eastern and Northern Districts of California with supply lines from Mexico and distribution channels throughout the United States.

At sentencing, United States District Judge William B. Shubb took into account Ocampo's serious criminal history that includes multiple violent felony convictions and said that the sentence reflected the need to protect the public from future crimes by him.

This case was part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force program that was established in 1982 to conduct comprehensive, multilevel attacks on major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation's drug supply.
