The most devastating sentence received by any of the GS9 members arrested in more than two years was handed down to Bobby Shmurda's associate Santino Boderick on Wednesday [Jan. 18]. Boderick, who was convicted on 23 counts of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder in the second degree, and a number of criminal assault and weapon charges back in November, was given 117 1/2 to 130 years.
Forensics results helped identify Boderick as a shooter in three out of four incidents of gun violence, after investigators were able to place him on the scene, between January 2013 and December 2014. He remained jailed along with 14 other members of the Brooklyn group, who law enforcement say acted with their Crip affiliates until prosecutors began to knock them one by one early in 2016. Back in May, Rashid "Rasha" Derissant received a 98-year sentence, before Alex "A-Rod" Crandon was hit with 53-years later that month.
Wednesday's sentencing made Boderick the third GS9 member to receive sentences greater than half a century long. He had been hoping for a better result when back in September he turned down a plea deal that would have promised him 15 years. Bobby Shmurda accepted the seven years he was handed in exchange for a guilty plea that same month, which was more than he was originally offered. Shmurda reportedly agreed to have an extra couple of years tacked on as a condition for lowering Roudy Rebel's sentence.
