Baltimore, Maryland – United States District Judge James K. Bredar sentenced Montel Harvey, a/k/a “Telly,” age 26, of Baltimore, Maryland, today to 21½ years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release for conspiring to participate in a racketeering enterprise known as the Black Guerilla Family’s Greenmount Avenue Regime.  As part of his plea agreement, Harvey admitted that on June 8, 2013, he committed a non-fatal shooting outside a nightclub in downtown Baltimore.  The Court found at sentencing that a total prison term of 25 years was appropriate, but adjusted the sentence downward to account for the fact that Harvey has served approximately three and a half years in prison in connection with a related state case.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur; Special Agent in Charge Daniel L. Board Jr. of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Baltimore Field Division; Special Agent in Charge Gordon Johnson of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl DeSousa; and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
According to his plea agreement, Harvey was a member of the BGF Greenmount Regime, formerly known as the Young Guerilla Family, or YGF.  Between 2005 and 2016, Harvey agreed with other BGF members to engage in crimes to further the interest of the gang, including drug distribution, murder, robbery, witness tampering, and witness retaliation.  Harvey admitted that he personally engaged in drug trafficking and attempted murder in furtherance of the BGF. Specifically, Harvey admitted to drug trafficking on four separate occasions between June 29, 2012, and July 6, 2013.
According to his plea agreement, on June 8, 2013, in the 300 block of West Fayette Street, Harvey shot a victim using a 9mm handgun.  At the time of the shooting, the victim was engaged in a physical confrontation with BGF member Wesley Brown outside the Mirage nightclub, where Harvey and other BGF members had gathered to celebrate Brown’s birthday.
United States Attorney Robert K. Hur commended ATF Baltimore, FBI Baltimore, the Baltimore City Police Department, and the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Hur thanked Assistant United States Attorneys Peter J. Martinez and Christina A. Hoffman, who prosecuted the case.
