Victor Joseph Espinoza is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to face one felony count each of false imprisonment and street terrorism, with sentencing enhancements for committing a crime for the benefit of a gang and for having an earlier strike conviction for street terrorism, Orange County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Farrah Emami said.

Please note that though the accused has a gang affiliation, he doesn’t appear to be a registrant. This appears to be a gang related incident.
