19-year-old Youngstown gang member headed to prison

Published: Fri, November 2, 2012 @ 2:50 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A 19-year-old member of a gang that was involved in a violent melee in the parking lot of a city school that was recorded and uploaded to Youtube will be spending several years behind bars.

Christian Oliver, 19, of East Delason, was on trial before a jury in the courtroom of Judge James C. Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court last week. The jury found him guilty of illegal conveyance of items onto the grounds of a detention facility, possession of cocaine, perjury and taking part in a criminal gang.

Martin Desmond, an assistant county prosecutor, said Oliver is a member of the Boss Boys Squad, a gang of about 25 people operating on the city's South Side.

Oliver appeared before Judge Evans for sentencing this morning. The judge handed down a nine-year sentence on the four felony charges.

Awww how cute, teenagers in a gang. Instead of roaming the streets in a little gang these useless DNA's should be productive members of society.

Hopefully sending this idiot to prison will maybe deter these punks.

Prison a deterrent? I think hell has a better chance of freezing over. At least if they are in prison they cannot wreck havoc here.

Now depending on which prison he s sent to he'll have to join another gang to survive.

Oh the Irony.
