Chicago, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Two Chicago men Friday became the fifth and sixth members of the violent “Hobos” street gang to be sentenced to life in prison on federal racketeering charges.
The Hobos were a criminal enterprise in Chicago that dealt narcotics, robbed from other drug dealers, retaliated against rival gangs, and violently prevented witnesses from cooperating with law enforcement. For nearly a decade the gang committed murders, attempted murders and robberies, primarily on the city’s south and west sides. All ten Hobos charged in the federal investigation were either convicted by a jury or pleaded guilty prior to trial . . .
