The Gangster Disciples, a large and vicious street gang, sells great quantities of cocaine, heroin, and other drugs in Chicago. A series of cases has seen the conviction of many members, some of them high in its hierarchy. See United States v. Ray, 238 F.3d 828 (7th Cir.2001); United States v. Wilson, 237 F.3d 827 (7th Cir.2001); United States v. Johnson, 223 F.3d 665 (7th Cir.2000); United States v. Smith, 223 F.3d 554 (7th Cir.2000); United States v. Jackson, 207 F.3d 910 (7th Cir.2000), remanded, 531 U.S. 953, 121 S.Ct. 376, 148 L.Ed.2d 290 (2000), decision on remand, 236 F.3d 886 (7th Cir.2001); United States v. Irwin, 149 F.3d 565 (7th Cir.1998). Today we deal with eight more members of the organization, including Larry Hoover, its “chairman of the board”; Gregory Shell, Hoover's second in command; Andrew Howard, the third of the gang's “directors”; and two “governors” (Tirenzy Wilson and Jerry Strawhorn). The other three appellants were lower in the hierarchy but still deeply involved in its operations. The five directors and governors, the gang's top echelon, have been convicted of operating a continuing criminal enterprise, 21 U.S.C. § 848, and sentenced to life imprisonment. Of the remaining three appellants, William Edwards was sentenced to life imprisonment and Adrian Bradd to 292 months' imprisonment for conspiring to distribute drugs, while Darrell Branch was sentenced to 324 months' imprisonment for conspiracy plus money laundering.
