Minn. man gets 25 years in teen gang rape 28 Mar 13

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A St. Paul man convicted of planning the gang rape of a teenage girl has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Mang Yang was among nine men and youths authorities say were involved in the attack on the then-15-year-old girl in a vacant, foreclosed home on St. Paul’s east side in November 2011.

In December, jurors convicted Yang of aiding and abetting first-degree criminal sexual conduct, conspiracy, kidnapping and committing a crime for the benefit of a gang.

Yang was accused of getting the girl drunk and delivering her to a party where gang members planned to rape her.

A Ramsey County judge called Yang’s actions “heinous” at Wednesday’s sentencing.
