A federal jury convicted a Baltimore gang leader of federal charges related to gang crimes Friday.

The Old York Money Gang leader, 24-year-old Trevon Beasley, a.k.a Tre, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison for the racketeering and drug conspiracy; a maximum of 10 years in prison for the gun conspiracy; and 20 years in prison for each of the eight drug distribution counts. 

According to court documents and evidence, Beasley was a member of the Old York Money Gang a violent drug trafficking organization located in Northeast Baltimore's Waverly neighborhood. OYMG is a neighborhood gang, limiting its membership to persons that originate from or live in the Waverly neighborhood, and generally excluding “outsiders.”  Evidence also showed, Beasley and other OYMG members regularly carried guns to defend the gang’s territory and violently killed their enemies.

Witnesses testified that after the homicide, associates of the victim engaged in a war with OYMG over the next weeks, culminating in two additional attempted murders carried out by Beasley.

Ten other defendants charged in the case previously pleaded guilty to racketeering and/or drug conspiracy charges. In November, 25-year-old Darrin Mosley pleaded guilty just before trial was scheduled to begin. Mosley is scheduled to be sentenced on February 15, 2019, at 9:30 a.m.

Beasley sentencing is scheduled for March 29, 2019, at 2:00 p.m.
