Crips gangster sentenced to 23 years on escape conspiracy, other charges

Christopher Conyers once conspired to help a gang member escape from federal custody, but now it’s Conyers that will face time in a U.S. prison.

Conyers (aka "Snooty") was sentenced to 23 years in prison on Tuesday after being convicted of conspiring to aid an escape, conspiring to commit an armed robbery, and possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon.

While Rollin 90s Crips gang leader Jamal Shakir was awaiting sentencing on federal murder and drug charges, he formed plans to escape and revitalize his street gang, according to federal authorities. Intercepted conversations by federal authorities found that Conyers was helping Shakir carry out gang activity — including the attempted murder of a man known as “Lil Ced.”

One of the plans allegedly included the theft of a helicopter.

“This defendant’s efforts to help a dangerous felon escape from custody, and his actions in helping to target a person for an armed home-invasion robbery, fully justify the sentence imposed by the court,” said U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin.

There are several other defendants awaiting trial for the alleged conspiracy.

"One of the plans allegedly included the theft of a helicopter"

That's actually funny. Some moron homeboy thought he'd figure out how to make use of a helicopter - probably because he saw it in a movie. I'd give him an additional 23 years as a "felony fool".

I'd rather hang him and be done with it.

For once JUGHEAD you have some sense of REALITY! Only if you were to leave it to me, I would be gathering "ALL" streetgang members and wanna b's. I'd lock them all in a giant steel walled room with NO WAY of getting out. Push a button to open a compartment inside the room to reveal a bunch of AK-47's and the door wood NOT open till they're "ALL" dead!!! Rid the world of the REAL IDIOTS!!
