Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory was sentenced to 30 years in prison yesterday (Dec. 5) for running the infamous drug organization the Black Mafia Family (BMF).
Flenory pled guilty to multiple counts of charges of running a criminal enterprise and conspiracy to laundering monetary instruments.
The conviction is the latest chapter in the investigation of the Black Mafia Family, which ran an interstate drug ring that sold thousands of kilos of cocaine a week, while raking in over $270 million dollars in cash, real estate and jewelry.
According to court documents, Flenory was accused of serving as a supervisor and organizer of the BMF operation, which utilized more than 50 people to distribute the cocaine in Detroit, Michigan, Orlando, Florida and Atlanta, between 1990 and 2005. Through his dealings, Flenory reaped millions.
Court documents show that he used the profits from his sales to “purchase real estate, vehicles and jewelry in order to promote the drug-trafficking activities of the organization.”
The BMF was investigated for over 15-years, before Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory and dozens of others were arrested late last year and throughout the course of 2007.
His brother has not been sentenced as of press time.
