ThinkStock

Five guilty verdicts were handed down by a federal jury on Tuesday in a racketeering case against the Howard Boys street gang.

According to MLive, it took jurors just a day to come to the verdicts after more than a month of testimony in the trial. Prosecutors had accused the men of using violence and intimidation to control the drug and weapons trade on the City of Flint’s south side. During the trial, the prosecution outlined a number of violent encounters the men were accused of that included three killings and seven attempted homicides. Also during the trial there were accusations of attempts to influence jurors and witness intimidation.

The five convicted were Leon Gills, Johnathan Oldham, Jonathan Walker, Jatimothy Walker and Alexandra Norwood. A sixth person on trial, Jamil Cureton, was acquitted of charges. Sentencing for the five convicted is scheduled for November.
