A judge reimposed a four-year suspended sentence for a gang member who violated his probation, according to the Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

In March 2010, Jimmy Joel DeLeon was sentenced to two years in prison with four years suspended after pleading guilty to felony gang participation, misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor destruction of property for acts committed in June 2009 in association with the 18th Street criminal gang, authorities said.

Four months after his release from prison, DeLeon was arrested on two counts of assault and one count of drunk in public in Fairfax County, according to the commonwealth's attorney. He was convicted and sentenced to 12 months.

At his probation violation hearing, DeLeon testified the assaults were self-defense, but evidence showed he struck another person's head with a bottle and his co-defendant fired a weapon during the incident.
