POSTED: 11/28/12 2:24 PM

GREAT BAY – All seven gang members in the Vesuvius-trial have appealed their verdicts. The term to file for appeal ends today. On November 15, Judge Rick Smid sentenced Omar Jones and Carlos Richardson to life in prison for murdering Hector Miguel and Rodolfo Arrindell and Kevin Gumbs and Eric Lake last year, and for attempted murder on the perceived killer of Amador Jones, Omax Bye. Other charges concerned membership of a criminal organization and weapons possession.

According to the court rulings the criminal organization was set up to violate the firearm ordinance, to commit murder and manslaughter and to deal in drugs.

Five other gang members received sentences between 5 and 8 years. Ekron Morgan was sentenced to 8 years, Doniel Darryl Thomas to 7 years, Erno Desmond Wycliff Labega and Andrew Sevin Davis to 6 years each and Charles Edmond Fleming to 5 years. The sentences are between 2 and 4 years below the demands by the prosecution.

Today the Public Prosecutor’s office will announce whether it will also file appeals.
