The younger brother of a man charged with murder in connection with a highly publicized fatal hit-and-run in Daly City earlier this year was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison this morning for three separate gang-related stabbings in 2009. At his sentencing in San Mateo County Superior Court this morning, 19-year-old Brandon Lee Mouton reaffirmed the no contest plea he entered April 19 to three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of aggravated mayhem. Each of the four counts carried the allegation that the crime was committed in furtherance of a gang, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Brandon Mouton is the younger brother of Matthew Sean Mouton, who will spend his 21st birthday in San Mateo County jail next week where he is being held without bail for the Feb. 7 fatal hit-and-run of 21 year old Jessie Wiley, which prosecutors say was intentional. Brandon Mouton was already in custody when his older brother allegedly struck and killed Wiley following a fight at a pizza joint that spilled out onto the street on King Drive in Daly City. Matthew Mouton has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges. Brandon Mouton was arrested Nov. 27, 2009, after three separate stabbings that seriously injured each victim. “Each were gang attacks on opposing gang members,” Wagstaffe said. “They were very serious stabbings, with stab wounds to the neck, chest and stomach area.” The most recent stabbing occurred the day of Brandon Mouton’s arrest, when he and his brother had gotten in a fight and Matthew Mouton was struck in the head, according to Wagstaffe. Brandon Mouton allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed the rival gang member in the back, Wagstaffe said. Officers then arrested him and linked him to two other stabbings, one on July 18 and the other on Aug. 11. Brandon Mouton was given the sentence of 36 years to life in prison, less than the greatest punishment of 51 years to life but more than the lowest possible punishment of 17 years to life. Wagstaffe called the sentence “appropriate,” adding that these were, “very, very vicious crimes.”
