      Gang member pleads guilty to violent acts including murder and drug possession

      A member of the V-NOT street gang pleaded guilty to numerous violent acts and drug possession.

      28 year old Kenneth Jackson pleaded guilty to an indictment charging him and ten others with conspiring to exploit their membership in the V-NOT Gang to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity which included acts of murder, drug trafficking and robbery.

      On the street, Jackson was known as KAROME, which means "Killer Affiliated Ruler Over Many Enemies." He admitted to participating in a gang fight at the Juke Box Bar, firing at least 21 shots from an AK-47 into the home of a rival gang member and possessing crack cocaine.

      Jackson is the third defendant in this case to plead guilty so far. He faces up to a lifetime behind bars and a $250,000 fine at his sentencing.
