Man found guilty in St. Paul gang rape


A St. Paul man could be sentenced to more than two decades in prison after a Ramsey County jury on Friday found him guilty for his role in planning the kidnapping and gang rape of a St. Paul teenager, KARE 11 reports. The verdict was issued on Mang Yang's 25th birthday.

A criminal complaint said Mang Yang and others raped a 15-year-old girl in November 2011 at an abandoned house on White Bear Avenue.

Yang showed no emotion Friday in the courtroom as the verdict was read, the Pioneer Press reports. It appeared that no relative or friend of Yang's was in the courtroom Friday, the newspaper reports.

Ramsey County prosecutors also have filed charges against four adults, as well as four juvenile males who prosecutors intend to try as adults, WCCO reports.

Sentencing for Yang has been set for Feb. 27.
