Gang Leader Admits Role in Murders As Head of Bangor-Connecticut Drug Ring 

A 32-year-old gang leader has admitted he took part in four murders as the head of what federal prosecutors say was a ruthless drug ring in Bangor and Connecticut.

Jeffrey Benton also pleaded guilty to federal racketeering, drug trafficking and money laundering charges during a court appearance Friday┬áin New Haven, Connecticut–where the murders happened.

Prosecutors say the Red Side Guerrilla Brims–an affiliate of the infamous Bloods gang–trafficked crack cocaine and firearms from Connecticut to Bangor.

Benton faces between 30 to 40 years in prison.

He’s already serving a 9-year sentence in another case.
