Five men swept up in a 2010 crackdown on the Hilltop Crips street gang pleaded guilty to various crimes this week in Pierce County Superior Court.
A fifth had a conspiracy count filed against him dismissed.
Here's the rundown:
Steven Lovelace, 23, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of second-degree assault. He’s to be sentenced Feb. 28.

Also Monday, Aliajuan Satterwhite, 21, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree robbery and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Andre T. Parker, 29, pleaded guilty Tuesday to third-degree assault. He received two years, 11 months in prison to be served consecutively to a 31-year sentence he received last year after being convicted of attempted murder.
Cory T. Campbell, 23, pleaded guilty Wednesday to drive-by shooting and was sentenced to four years, two months.
Brandon Starks, 21, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery. Terms of his sentence weren’t immediately available.
Also Wednesday, prosecutors dismissed the sole conspiracy count filed against Bryant D. Morgan, 27, as part of the crackdown. Morgan previously was convicted of attempted murder as a co-defendant to Parker. He was sentenced to 29 years in that case.
In all, prosecutors won convictions against 34 of the 36 people charged a year ago in the crackdown, which targeted Tacoma’s oldest street gang. Two men had charges against them dismissed.
Several defendants are to be sentenced later this month.
