Former Roc La Familia artist, Tru Life appeared at Manhattan Criminal Court today and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Tru and his brother accepted a plea deal for the 2009 stabbing death of Christopher Guerrero. Both have been charged with second-degree murder, gang assault and assault charges.
The gavel has come down hard for Clipse former manager, Anthony Gonzalez, as he was sentenced to 32 years behind bars on Monday.
Admitting to his participation as the leader of a drug ring that accumulated $20 million, Gonzalez, 34, received the minimum sentence based off of federal guidelines with it being partially credited to the fact that he was cooperative with the government along with the fact that his past criminal record was not outstanding.
Based on his cooperation once behind bars, he may find his prison sentence lowered even more.
As the leader of the organization, Gonzalez stated that he ran things primarily from Encore Lounge, a nightclub located in Virginia Beach, which has since then been shut down. His dealings in narcotics have been tied in connection with Tim Montgomery, an Olympic gold medalist, and Marlon Reed, former Bloods gang leader.
In his five year stint, prosecutors were able to find him responsible behind the distribution of over half a ton of cocaine, a ton of marijuana and hundreds of pounds in heroin that circulated throughout the region.
Known for his involvement within the community, many were in disbelief that Gonzalez engaged in such activity.
“These are obviously staggering amounts of drugs,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Darryl Mitchell. “One can only imagine what that’s done to the community.”
Now that his life has caught up with him, he can only look around and realize his misfortune and deal with the consequences ahead of him.
“I just want to say that I’m sorry to my family and I’m sorry to the community,” Gonzalez said to the U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Friedman.
Lawrence H. Woodward Jr, the attorney for Gonzalez, even added that he was very intelligent and unfortunately didn’t utilize his potential to be successful in a more positive lane.
“It’s always puzzling and sad when someone with that ability doesn’t use it for constructive purposes,” Woodward said.
He added that although his client lived a fast and luxurious life, Gonzalez knew that one day the tides would eventually turn and he would find himself behind a prison wall or dead.
Walking away in handcuffs, Gonzalez was given support with around 40 people filling the courtroom and some saying “We love you.”
WILMINGTON, NC – United States Attorney George E.B. Holding announced that in federal court yesterday, Senior United States District Judge James C. Fox sentenced JAMAL MONTA WATSON, also known as “Gunna,” 31, from Greensboro, North Carolina, to 188 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release. The Court imposed restitution in the amount of $2,800.00.
On March 1, 2009, WATSON pled guilty to aiding and abetting the distribution of heroin and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The investigation, an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Operation (OCDETF) investigation entitled Operation Face Off, centered around a violent Raleigh/Durham-based drug organization responsible for the multi-kilogram distribution of heroin, cocaine, and cocaine base. Drug Enforcement Administration agents utilized a wiretap in the investigation. WATSON was the last of the named defendants in a superseding indictment that charged the leader of the Face Mob Family, Donald Stanton Shealey, and members and associates, Gilbert Ernesto Sherwood, Salahudeen Abdul Abdallah, Khalid Usama Abdallah, Tyrone Ricardo Lawrence, Timothy Lamont Hargrove, Samara Scott, and Leketa Smith with a drug distribution conspiracy, drug distribution, money laundering conspiracy and money laundering crimes. The Government also charged a related defendant, Shawn Brown, with engaging in a money laundering conspiracy with Shealey. WATSON’S role was that of a drug distributor and enforcer.
The investigation is ongoing. The law enforcement agencies conducted the investigation include the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the State Bureau of Investigation, the Raleigh Police Department, and the Durham Police Department.
