Gang member gets 14 years after attacking fellow inmate

February 24, 2012 |  2:42 pm

A 35-year-old San Diego gang member was sentenced Friday to 14 years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm and for slicing a fellow inmate's face with a razor.

While on parole in 2008 for drug and firearms convictions, Travis Chelberg, also known as Whisper, was found to be in possession of a firearm, according to court documents.

While awaiting trial on that charge, he attacked a fellow inmate at the Metropolitan Correctional Center to dissuade that prisoner from testifying against him, prosecutors said.

Chelberg was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Barry Ted Moskowitz.
