A Raleigh, North Carolina Bloods gang member was sentenced today to 120 months in prison for racketeering and drug charges. 

 

Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Robert J. Higdon Jr. of the Eastern District of North Carolina made the announcement. 

 

Chief U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III sentenced Christopher Darnell Evans, 28, to 120 months in prison, followed by five years of supervised released following his prison sentenced.  Evans was named in an Indictment filed on Jan. 20, charging him with conspiracy to participate in a pattern of racketeering, and conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute, 500 grams or more of cocaine.  On Sept. 11, Evans pleaded guilty to those charges.

 

According to the indictment, the Black Mob Gangstas and Donald Gee Family (BMG/DGF) Bloods is a violent street gang with members operating in Raleigh, including the Haywood Street area, since the early 2000s.  The gang is organized according to a detailed hierarchical structure.  Senior leadership regularly conducted formal meetings, collected dues from members and assaulted members who failed to pay or follow orders. 

 

Evans attended gang meetings, received instructions from higher-ranking gang members regarding the gang’s rank structure and the payment of gang dues.  Additionally, Evans frequently sold narcotics on behalf of the gang, specifically cocaine.

 

The case was investigated by the Raleigh Police Department, FBI and the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Dena King and Scott Lemmon of the Eastern District of North Carolina, and Trial Attorney John C. Hanley of the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section.
