PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The leader of a white supremacist gang who used his Portland auto shop to distribute methamphetamine and torture enemies has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison.

The Oregonian/Oregon Live reports (https://bit.ly/20VUrAj ) that federal and state prosecutors reached a settlement with lawyers for 48-year-old David Corbit, leader of the Krude Rude Brood.

Corbit had pleaded no contest to attempted murder and guilty to assault, robbery and kidnapping charges in two state cases. He pleaded guilty to the federal drug charge.

Federal agents worked with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s office to have undercover officers infiltrate the gang in the Portland area.

Corbit is a co-owner of Tom’s Auto Painting and Body Shop and was identified as the gang’s “enforcer.” The gang used home invasions, kidnapping and assaults to intimidate witnesses.
