Washington (CNN) — A  “shot caller” in the deadly MS-13  gang operating in the Middle Atlantic region pleaded guilty in a  Federal Court to  a long list of crimes, including murders, federal authorities announced Friday

Dennis Gil-Bernardez,  a native  of  Honduras, was considered a major player  by federal officials who launched  a hard hitting  campaign  to cripple the deep-rooted  MS-13 organization in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

He was clobbered with  a 76-year sentence.
