Bricktown Gang Member Pleads Guilty

Another member of Syracuse's violent Bricktown Gang has been brought down today by the feds.

22 year old Jarrell Williams has pleaded guilty in Federal Court in Syracuse to multiple acts of murder, drug trafficking and robbery.

The feds say Williams was a member of the gang and was directly involved in the death of one person and the trafficking of drugs like crack, cocaine and marijuana.

Willams will be sentenced in federal court in October and is expected to get 30 years to life behind bars.

One by one, federal prosecutors have now arrested and convicted at least 13 members of the violent gang in recent years in Syracuse who the feds say terrorized residents in several Syracuse neighborhoods.

Two more members of the gang are now facing federal charges, including one gang members who allegedly shot and killed a 20 month old baby in Syracuse in 2011 in a dispute with another gang member.
