BALTIMORE (AP) — A woman who helped oversee a powerful gang has been sentenced to two years in prison.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Kimberly McIntosh, a member of the Black Guerilla Family, received her sentence Friday.
McIntosh worked at a health care center in West Baltimore and enforced gang disciple, oversaw drug trafficking enterprises and hosted meetings.
McIntosh pleaded guilty to racketeering in 2011 and was released from prison in 2014. The following year McIntosh was caught sending more than $4,000 to 36 inmates, including several co-defendants from her case. When officers searched her home last October they found 11 grams of heroin packaged for street sale.
The judge said he took mercy on McIntosh during sentencing because she has Stage 3 breast cancer and is scheduled to have a double mastectomy.
