Two members of a criminal gang have been sentenced to death, suspended for two years, and 32 members of the same gang have received hefty jail terms, Xiaoxiang Morning News reported on Wednesday.

Hengyang City Intermediate People's Court heard the case against the gang on April 19, 2011 and passed judgment on Aug 23.

From May 2004, gang leader Yin Jian ran an entertainment company providing drugs and prostitution in Hengyang, Hunan province. The gang also bribed Chen Xiaoping, former deputy director of the city's public security bureau Shigu branch, in a bid to protect its illegal business.
