An East Baltimore man was sentenced to life in prison without parole Monday for ruling over a murderous branch of the Black Guerrilla Family street gang and ordering the execution of a police informant.
Gerald "Geezy" Johnson, 35, showed no emotion as a federal judge in Baltimore handed down the harshest possible penalty.
“He poses a grave danger,” U.S. District Judge James Bredar told the courtroom. “Perhaps the greatest danger of any defendant the court has ever sentenced.”
A woman scoffed from the gallery.
In a two-month trial, prosecutors described Johnson as the overlord of the ruthless East Baltimore gang.
