East Baltimore gang boss sentenced to life for ordering murder of police informant

Gerald "Geezy" Johnson, 35, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for ruling over a branch of the Black Guerrilla Family street gang and ordering the execution of a police informant. He showed no emotion as a federal judge handed down the harshest possible penalty. The gang committed seven murders, shootings and more than 10 armed robberies while selling drugs. Their reign lasted over a decade.
