Four members of Bloods sent to prison for carving in Mt. Morris boy’s chest
They pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering
FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - Four members of the Bloods gang will spend several years in federal prison after they pleaded guilty to carving a logo into a 15-year-old boy’s chest.
Prosecutors say Doniel Heard, Talasha Willis, Kimberly Perryman and Alina White all assaulted the 15-year-old after they believed he disrespected two fellow Bloods members.
Heard, who goes by the nickname 50, was the alleged leader in the incident. He allegedly carved “MOB 662″ in the boy’s chest with a knife while the other three suspects held the boy down.
Federal prosecutors say “M.O.B.” is an acronym for “Members of Bloods” and the “662” comes from the letter combination of MOB on a numeric telephone keypad. The 15-year-old suffered a permanent injury from the assault.
All four suspects pleaded guilty to charges of assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.
Prosecutors say 38-year-old Heard of Canton, an admitted leader of the Michigan Bloods gang, placed video calls on his cell phone to other gang members bragging about the assault and bragging about his “artwork.” He was sentenced to 20 years in a federal prison for his role in the assault.
Here are the sentences for the other three suspects:
- Willis of Flint, who goes by the nickname First Lady Red, will spend eight years and three months in prison.
- Perryman of Mt. Morris, who goes by the nickname Boss Lady Red, will spend six years and eight months in prison.
- White of Flint, who goes by the nickname Mimi Red, will spend three years in prison.
“This brutal and senseless act of violence on a 15-year old boy by gang members is appalling, and it is precisely the type of crime that we are committed to rooting out,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin. “We intend to bring the full force of federal law upon gang members who are harming our youth and destroying our communities.”
