LSP gang member gets federal prison time

YOUNGSTOWN — A defendant who pleaded guilty in the Youngstown LSP gang conspiracy case has been sentenced to 33 months in federal prison.

Tyrell Oliver drew the sentence today from U.S. District Court Judge Donald C. Nugent, who said Oliver would be on supervised release for three years after prison.

Last week, Judge Nugent sent another LSP defendant, who pleaded guilty, Nalemn Hasley, to prison for 46 months, also followed by three years of supervised release.

Other LSP case defendants, who earlier drew prison terms after pleading guilty, were: Melvin Johnson III, three years; Marques Duvall, two years; Corey Council, three years; and Tre’von Mason, 28 months.

These defendants were among 23 people named in a 42-count indictment in March 2011 for their alleged involvement with the LSP gang.

LSP stands for LaClede, Sherwood, Parkview and Princeton avenues in the Idora Neighborhood on Youngstown’s South Side, where the gang was active between 2003 and 2011, the U.S. attorney said.
