Head of Newburgh Bloods Convicted on MurderJun 18th, 2013 | By Jay Long | Category: Current Events
The man that the FBI said was the head of the Blood’s Gang in the City of Newburgh has been found guilty of murder, narcotics and racketeering charges.
31 year old Anthony ‘Double O’ Boykin was found guilty by a jury in federal court after three days of deliberations. Federal prosecutors said he killed Lamont ‘City’ Young in 2009 and was responsible for several other acts of violence.
Boykin’s co-defendant, 23 year old Justin ‘Justo’ Simmons, was found guilty of racketeering, narcotics conspiracy and gun charges.
This is the second trial for the two men after the first trial was surrounded by controversy, ending in a mistrial when jurors couldn’t reach a decision.
