Lots of strange words for answers but I'm convinced that the answer to q.14 is straightforward. I just can't get it!
'Gang member is in American prison and ....' (7)
This one has been driving me nuts and I can't find help anywhere.

The answer is a straightforward word and chambers defines this villain as 'bandit or highway robber, especially a member of a gang'.

The 4 letter word for the American pison + AND makes up the 7 letter answer.

The 4 letter word has other meanings as well ... Chambers ' two masted sqare rigged vessel; a place of detention on board ship (US Navy); a prison (US slang) ......
