BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Dewayne Gray, 31, aka Whip, and Erika Gray, 34, aka Tek, both of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara, to RICO conspiracy. In addition, Erika Gray pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine. Dewayne Gray faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $2,500,000 fine. Erika faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life and an $8,000,000 fine.

“This represents yet another instance where this office used racketeering charges to completely decimate a violent street gang,” said U.S. Attorney Hochul. “This office will continue to target such gangs until they are a thing of the past.”

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Thomas S. Duszkiewicz and Joel L. Violanti, who are handling the case, stated that between 2009 and January 23, 2012, Dewayne Gray was the leader of the LRGP gang, which operates primarily in the area of Lombard, Rother, Playter and Gibson Streets in the City of Buffalo. It is alleged to be an organization engaged in violent criminal activity, including the distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine and the use of firearms. Erika Gray was an associate of the gang.

As leader of the LRGP Gang, Dewayne Gray organized and managed gang members, and the narcotics distribution and sales. Dewayne Gray maintained 42 Memorial Drive and 29 Meyers Street in Buffalo for the purpose of manufacturing and distributing crack cocaine.

As an LRGP associate, Erika Gray participated in the distribution and crack cocaine and the racketeering activities of the gang. She was arrested in 2012 and released from custody but continued to distribute crack cocaine with other gang members out of residences on Houghton and Warren Avenues in Buffalo.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Safe Streets Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Cohen, the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Field Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Delano A. Reid, New York Field Office and the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Daniel Derenda.

Erika Gray is scheduled to be sentenced on June 15, 2016 at 12:30 p.m. Dewayne Gray will be sentenced on July 18, 2016 at 12:30 p.m., both before Judge Arcara.
