WARREN - The seventh and final member of a Niles gang was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday after pleading guilty to three charges, including felonious assault and attempted kidnapping.
Douglas McGuire, 18, of Washington Street, was also charged with participating in a gang known as the Savages.
He had been free on $50,000 bond.
Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Ronald Rice imposed a two-year-sentence on the three felony charges and an additional year on combined firearm and gang member specifications.
Another man, Jamaz Lamont Protho of Royal Mall Drive, was sentenced by another judge to four years in prison in March for his involvement in the gang and his role in the beating of a 50-year-old man.
In January, McKay sentenced Daniel Jay Uncapher, 20, of Youll Street to one year in prison for his involvement with the Savages.
Cases are now complete against four underage teens in the gang, according to assistant county prosecutor Charles Morrow, including one boy sentenced to 2 1/2 years and a teenage girl sentenced to one year for her role in the kidnapping of a young woman.
All the gang members were indicted in December.
''Savages, in addition to its common name, has one or more common identifying signs, symbols or colors,'' the indictment states.
One of the crimes the gang was linked to was a Sept. 8 street fight on North Bentley Avenue when three people walking down the street were confronted by a carload of people who took issue with them walking in the roadway.
A police report indicates that four people, including Protho, got out of the car and began beating a man in the group before jumping back into a Jaguar and fleeing.
Morrow said the victim suffered a permanent eye injury.
The group also is accused of the Sept. 16 kidnapping the 21-year-old woman who was held hostage on North Chestnut Avenue, where she was ''pistol-whipped, stomped on with spikes, beaten with a belt and kicked.''
A relative of the victim told police that the victim ''knows who it is but she is terrified to tell because they threatened to kill her kids and family. She also thinks it is the so-called gang members - Savages,'' police reports state.
