12th OGK gang member sentenced

00:27 |

25-year-old Nakeem Stratton became the 12th Original Gangster Killers, or "Downtown" gang, gang member to be sentenced, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office on Monday.

Stratton, known as "Bayshawn" and "Little Bay" was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Gary Sharpe to 57 months in prison.  Stratton originally faced 120 months, but received 63 months credit for time served.  He will also have five years of supervised release after he completes his prison term.

Stratton's sentence comes after his guilty plea to a racketeering charge in Count One of a federal indictment.  He admitted that he was an OGK gang member and had conspired with others to possess crack cocaine with intent to distribute.  He had also previously admitted that he participated with other gang members in acts of violence.

The OGK gang operated within the City of Albany.
