A purported gang godfather has a message for Charlotte. So he wrote us a letter.

In a last-minute effort to sway his jury, the purported godfather of a notorious East Coast gang wrote in a letter that he had been the victim of a tricked-up government prosecution straight out of "a Grimm brothers fairy tale book."

"The prosecution's case is all smoke and mirrors to dupe and deceive the good citizens of North Carolina and waste their tax payers' dollars," Pedro "Magoo" Gutierrez wrote in a letter addressed to Observer readers.

"Good citizens ... I ask that you hold the government accountable for this travesty of justice against these defendants ... and that they be found not guilty."

The 12 good citizens on Gutierrez' jury did not follow his instructions. After a full day of deliberations, the alleged head of United Blood Nation was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy.


Two other defendants, including a New York state prison inmate who the government says is Gutierrez' top lieutenant, were also convicted of the same charge.


Sentencing by U.S. District Judge Frank Whitney of Charlotte will come at a later date.

"We have a message for the UBN and all other criminal organizations: We are coming for you," U.S. Attorney Andrew Murray said after the verdicts. "Person by person, set by set, clique by clique, and leader by leader. You are in our sights."

Pedro Gutierrez, the accused "Godfather" of United Blood Nation, wrote a letter during his trial, saying that the government's charges were unfounded, and asking his jurors to find him and his co-defendants not guilty. Instead, the panel convicted him and two others of racketeering charges.

The close of the two-week trial drew strikingly different reactions from opposite sides of the Charlotte courtroom. Prosecutors and FBI agents shook hands, hugged and pounded each other on the backs.

But as the guilty verdicts were announced, the daughter of defendant Cynthia "Lady Bynt" Gilmore of Raleigh buried her face in her hands and began crying. A bailiff told her to leave.


As the courtroom door closed behind her, Gilmore's daughter broke down into a series of howling sobs that echoed throughout the courthouse as she was led away by a friend.



Exactly one year before their convictions, Gutierrez, Gilmore and James "Grown" Baxton were among 83 purported members of the United Blood Nation named in a sweeping federal indictment.


Gutierrez, 45, and Baxton, 44, both New York state inmates, were accused of running a 15,000-member crime syndicate from inside their prisons that sold drugs and firearms, dabbled in identity theft and other white-collar crimes, and meted out violence ranging from extortion to murder.

Prosecutors and the FBI said Gilmore, 42, a mother of five, served as a vital part of the chain of command, making numerous trips to visit her co-defendants to discuss gang business while also funneling money to both imprisoned gang leaders.

Thirty-five other alleged gang members named in the indictment have pleaded guilty to an array of charges.

In Gutierrez's three-page, hand-printed letter — a photocopy was emailed to the Observer on Thursday morning and later confirmed as authentic by Gutierrez's attorney — the alleged crime boss said the government's accusations were part of a "sensational and fictionalized narrative ... the 'Godfather' of Bloods, allegedly running a faction of the 'gang' in Charlotte from a New York prison cell."

During closing arguments Wednesday, Gutierrez’s lawyer echoed his client’s argument

Appearing powerful benefited Gutierrez in prison, attorney Brett Wentz said. But he was in “special housing” with extra supervision, no phone calls and limited visits for the majority of his years in prison, he said. So, Wentz asked, how could he have done what the government said he did?


Cynthia Gilmore of Raleigh, who was convicted Thursday in Charlotte of racketeering conspiracy, was a part of the top chain of command of United Blood Nation, prosecutors said during the two-week trial.

Gutierrez said prosecutors had not shown the jury a single victim of crime from the alleged conspiracy. "The good citizens of North Carolina are left to ponder while scratching their heads ... A conspiracy against what or whom?" he wrote.

Gutierrez, who was imprisoned in New York on a murder charge at the time of the most recent indictment, said the Charlotte jurors never heard that "Cynthia Gilmore is a wife and a mother of five ... and that Mr. Baxton and Mr. Gutierrez have been in their child's lives being good fathers despite being in prison."


"The government attempts to strip these defendants of their humanity and make them out to be monsters," he wrote.


He accused prosecutors of using "scare tactics" by insisting that an anonymous jury hear the trial of the three gang leaders — "thereby denying the defendants ... the fundamental right of a fair and impartial jury."

In his letter, Gutierrez asked the jurors to see through the government's artifice and for his readers to "demand that the injustice against these defendants end(s)."

He ended his letter this way: "Respectfully submitted, the defendant, Pedro Gutierrez."

At about 11 a.m. Thursday, Gutierrez, Baxton and Gilmore all sat impassively as, one by one, the guilty verdicts were read aloud.

Federal Jury Convicts Three High-Ranking Bloods Gang Members Of Racketeering Conspiracy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Three high-ranking leaders of the Nine Trey Gangsters set of the United Blood Nation (UBN or Bloods) street gang, including the “Godfather” of the organization, who also served as “Chairman” of the UBN, were convicted today of racketeering conspiracy charges.

Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney R. Andrew Murray for the Western District of North Carolina and Special Agent in Charge John Strong of the FBI Charlotte, North Carolina Field Division, made the announcement.

Pedro Gutierrez, aka Magoo/Light/Inferno, 45; James Baxton, aka Frank White, 44; and Cynthia Gilmore, aka Cynthia Young/Lady Bynt, 42, all of Raleigh, North Carolina, were convicted by a federal jury sitting in Charlotte following a two-week trial.

“This guilty verdict represents a significant blow against the highest leadership of the Nine Trey Gangsters and the United Blood Nation,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “It reflects the sustained and extensive commitment by federal, state and local law enforcement, including the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section, to disrupt and dismantle this and other prison and street gangs throughout the country.”

“UBN uses violence and intimidation to assert power over our neighborhoods and vicious tactics to bolster the image of an indestructible gang,” said U.S. Attorney Murray. “Today’s convictions of three high-ranking leaders delivered a blow to that myth, proving that UBN gangsters are no different than other common criminals – they can and will be found and prosecuted for their crimes. As we continue our efforts to curb gang violence and devastate gang networks in Western North Carolina, we have a message for the UBN and all other criminal organizations: We are coming for you. Person by person, set by set, clique by clique, and leader by leader. You are in our sights. Your gang will be dismantled and you will be held accountable.”

“These leaders of the UBN thought they were untouchable, continuing to run their criminal enterprise from inside state prison,” said Special Agent in Charge Strong. “Today’s guilty verdicts in federal court abruptly put an end to their dirty business. Do not be mistaken, to anyone who tries to fill the criminal void left by these convictions, you should know, we'll come after you next with the full strength of our federal, local, and state law enforcement partners.”,.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, the UBN is a violent criminal street gang operating throughout the east coast of the United States since its inception as a prison gang in 1993. UBN members are often identified by their use of the color red, and can also often be identified by common tattoos or burn marks. Examples include: a three-circle pattern, usually burned onto the upper arm, known as a “dog paw”; the acronym “M.O.B.,” which stands for “Member of Bloods”; the words “damu,” or “eastside”; the number five; the five-pointed star; and the five-pointed crown. UBN members have distinct hand signs and written codes, which are used to identify other members and rival gang members. The Nine Trey Gangster set of the UBN refer to themselves as “Billies.”

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, the UBN is governed by a common set of 31 rules, known as “The 31,” which were originally written by the founders of the UBN. Members of the UBN are expected to conduct themselves and their illegal activity according to rules and regulations set by their leaders. Prominent among these is a requirement to pay monthly dues to the organization, often in the amounts of $31 or $93. A percentage of these funds are transferred to incarcerated UBN leadership in New York; these funds also are used locally to conduct gang business. UBN gang dues are derived from illegal activity performed by subordinate UBN members including narcotics trafficking, robberies, wire fraud, and bank fraud, among other forms of illegal racketeering activities.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, the Nine Trey Gangsters’ leadership proceeds in rank, from lowest to highest, from “Scrap,” “1-Star General” through “5-Star General,” “Low,” “High,” and, “Godfather.” Based on evidence introduced during the trial, Gutierrez was a “Godfather” of the Nine Trey Gangsters and had served since 2003 as the “Chairman” of the council that governs the UBN. Gutierrez, together with James Baxton and Omari Rosero, were “the last ones that God put in power” over the UBN. As the Godfather of the set, Gutierrez, along with Baxton, conducted gang business and participated in the distribution of gang dues while incarcerated in the New York State Department of Corrections. Trial evidence also established that Gutierrez ordered a gang war in North Carolina in 2011 directing that members of the Bloods gang attack and kill members of a renegade gang called Pretty Tony. The war resulted in numerous injuries among inmates and the lockdown of five North Carolina prisons for six months.

Further, trial evidence established that Cynthia Gilmore, who trafficked cocaine, was a local high-ranking officer who routinely traveled from North Carolina to New York to meet with Defendant Gutierrez, acting as his “eyes” and “voice” in the South. The evidence also showed that Baxton was trafficking heroin within the New York State and prison system. He also was calling and threatening the family members of inmates incarcerated in New York State in an effort to obtain money.

In addition to the three defendants convicted at trial today, 35 defendants have previously pleaded guilty in this investigation, including nine defendants in high-ranking leadership positions:

Omari Rosero, aka Uno B, 41, of Elmira, New York, pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy. During his plea, Omari Rosero admitted to holding the leadership rank of “High,” and to serving as an acting “Godfather” of the entire UBN gang.

Montraya Antwain Atkinson, aka Hardbody, 31, of Raleigh, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.

Lattibeaudiere further admitted to participating in a scheme to make and attempt to make over $64,000 in purchases using fraudulent credit and gift cards;
Bianca Kiashie Harrison, aka Lady Gunz, 28, of Midway Park, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.
