A woman accused of helping oversee the prison-based Black Guerilla Family gang was sentenced to five years in federal prison, federal authorities announced Thursday.
Kimberly McIntosh, 43, of Baltimore, enforced gang discipline, helped oversee drug trafficking, and hosted meetings of high-ranking members at her home, where leaders discussed drug-dealing, robberies and retaliation against rivals. Prosecutors allege she came up with a plan to have street commanders of the BGF raise $3,000 from lower-level members, with the funds transferred into a central "treasury."
Prosecutors say all high-ranking BGF members who were indicted in 2010, which includes four state corrections officers, have pleaded guilty. The gang's leader, Eric Brown, who was already incarcerated, received 12 years in federal prison in August.
McIntosh's prison sentence will be followed by three years of supervised release. email@example.com
