(AllHipHop News) Another high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods is scheduled to be sentenced in October, thanks in part to rap star Tekashi 6ix9ine.
Like the other defendants in the case, Ro Murda was part of a RICO case brought on by the U.S. government over several crimes the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods were committing on behalf of Tekashi 6ix9ine.
The Feds claim Ro Murda held leadership positions in the prison and street lineups for the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods
Ro Murda is accused of committing some violent acts on behalf of the gang, including an incident in which the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods let off a shot inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn during a beef with rapper Casanova.
Federal prosecutor Geoffrey S. Berman is asking Judge Paul Englemayer to send Ro Murda to jail for eight years for his role in the RICO conspiracy.
"The defendant's high rank in the game, together with his active participation in acts of violence, warrants a significant term of incarceration for both specific and general deterrence," Geoffrey S. Berman said.
Aljermiah Mack was convicted of drug-dealing, while Anthony "Harv" Ellison was found guilty of kidnapping 6ix9ine.
Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman recommended the lengthy prison sentence, due to Ro Murda's continued association with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, despite his previous trip to prison.
"The public has an interest in incapacitating and deterring the defendant and others similarly situated from committing further acts of violence and from engaging in the distribution of narcotics," Geoffrey S. Berman explained. "The defendant has served lengthy prison sentences, yet that has not stopped him from his continual membership and active role in Nine Trey."
