Black Mafia Member Sentenced to 20 years

ATLANTA (AP) - A man prosecutors call a "senior member" of the
Black Mafia Family has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison
for cocaine conspiracy.

Fleming Daniels of Roswell, Ga., also was fined $10,000 for
participating in the violent drug gang, the focus of federal prosecution in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Louisville, Ky., Orlando, Fla., and elsewhere.

The 35-year-old Daniels is the first of 16 defendants indicted in Atlanta to go to trial. Eleven entered guilty pleas. Three others are in custody and one is a fugitive.

Evidence showed that during 2003-2004, the gang moved hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into Atlanta, Detroit, and other points. Prosecutors say Daniels was responsible for distributing over 50 kilograms valued at more than $1 million.
