It's Offical, Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff Sentenced To Life In Jail

 Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff was officially sentenced on Friday (March 9) to life in prison without any chance of parole for his conviction in February 2007.

McGriff will be spending the rest of his life behind bars because of racketeering charges, narcotics trafficking and conspiring to murder aspiring Queens rapper E-Money Bags and a former associate Troy Singleton.

Following Supreme's conviction, a jury in Brooklyn federal court was unable to reach an undisputed verdict regarding the death penalty, prosecutors said. As a result of the deadlocked deliberations, McGriff faced an obligatory sentence of life in prison.

U.S. Attorney Roslynn Mauskopf stated that after serving a jail sentence on a previous conviction, McGriff established another violent organization and again became involved in a variety of criminal acts including racketeering; drug trafficking, homicide and money laundering. McGriff's new organization trafficked in wholesale quantities of heroin and cocaine from New York as far south as North Carolina, prosecutors said.

"He devoted the better part of two decades to gangs, drug trafficking and violence, treating his prior sentences as mere interruptions in his pursuit of a life of crime," Mauskopf.stated.
