Aryan Brotherhood of Mississippi boss gets life for racketeering conspiracy

By Gangsters Inc. Editors

Frank George Owens Jr., a leader of the Aryan Brotherhood of Mississippi (ABM) gang, was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for his participation in a variety of violent criminal acts, including racketeering conspiracy, murder, kidnapping, methamphetamine production and trafficking and other related offenses.

The 44-year-old gangster was sentenced to serve an additional 120 months for attempted murder. On April 13, 2016, he was found guilty by a federal grand jury of engaging in a racketeering conspiracy, murder, kidnapping and attempted murder.

The Aryan Brotherhood of Mississippi is the Mississippi-centered branch of the Aryan Brotherhood, a violent, “whites only,” prison-based gang with members and associates operating inside and outside of state penal institutions. The ABM is engaged in racketeering activities, including murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, assault, money laundering, firearms trafficking and trafficking in marijuana and methamphetamine, both inside and outside correctional facilities.

Owens had been indicted in 2014, along with 13 other members of the ABM. According to trial evidence, he and three co-defendants served at varying times on the ABM’s three-member “wheel” that oversaw and directed ABM activity throughout Mississippi during the conspiracy.

Known for its penchant for deadly violence, the Aryan Brotherhood enforces its rules with brute force, as one of its associates found out in a grisly manner. The man had an unpaid drug debt with the gang so Owens and other ABM leaders ordered underlings to lure him to an ABM house so that they could murder him. Owens and Eric Glenn Parker beat the victim to death and delivered the body to a co-defendant, who burned the victim’s body for days in order to incinerate it.

In addition, in a separate incident, Owens ordered the stabbing of a gang member for threatening to rape a child. The gang member was stabbed five times.

This sentencing marks the culmination of a 2.5-year investigation into and prosecution of ABM, which resulted in the conviction of 42 members and associates of the gang. 35-year-old Eric Glenn Parker was convicted along with Owens of engaging in a racketeering conspiracy, murder and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of methamphetamine. Parker’s sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
