Two life terms for Md. gang leader
A man described by prosecutors as the leader of a violent Baltimore drug gang has been sentenced to two life terms in federal prison.
Thirty-year-old Terrence Richardson was convicted in March on racketeering and drug conspiracy charges.
Federal prosecutors say Richardson was the leader of a gang called the PDL Bloods.
According to testimony, the gang distributed heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana and was responsible for murders, attempted murders and other violent acts. Testimony showed that Richardson ordered at least two slayings, one of which was carried out.
Another gang member, 46-year-old Gregory Saulsbury, was convicted of drug conspiracy alongside Richardson and faces a mandatory life sentence. His sentencing is scheduled for Wednesday.
