A trial is underway this week for the suspected ringleader of a gang rape of a woman kidnapped from her Richmond neighborhood in 2008. Humberto Salvador, identified by police as a 36-year-old gang member, is alleged to have raped the woman with others in part because she is a lesbian. In October, two men were given lengthy prison sentences for the October 2009 gang rape of a 16-year-old girl outside a Richmond High School dance. Jose Montano, 22, of Richmond, received the maximum sentence of 33 years to life while his co-defendant Marcelles Peter, 20, was sentenced to 29 years to life. Cases are pending against two other defendants in connection with the incident.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Watch your pennies as well as your step. You have boundless enthusiasm and confidence and may be flying high, but someone might decide to clip your wings. Don’t offend someone by being rude or insincere. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Receiving attention might bring unpleasant surprises. Someone could be intent on finding things for you to do and telling you exactly how to do every single thing in painstaking, micro-management style. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): May the road rise up to meet you. Optimism and a positive attitude will keep you sailing high above the madding crowd. If you are forced to confront issues with someone close defer final decisions until next week.
