High-ranking leader in NC Bloods gang sentenced to 19 years for racketeering

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A leader in the North Carolina chapter of the United Blood Nation (UBN) street gang has been convicted on racketeering charges in district court and sentenced to 19 years in prison.

Cynthia Gilmore, of Raleigh, was given a 228 month sentence for a variety of crimes she had been accused of committing in affiliation with the Nine Trey Gangsters division of the UBN.

“As a trusted leader of the Nine Trey Gangsters, Cynthia Gilmore played an integral role in the gang’s violent mission by trafficking narcotics, robbing other drug dealers, and acting as a communications conduit for Pedro Gutierrez, the gang’s incarcerated leader who had previously ordered a gang war,” said Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski.

Robert Allen McClinton, 29, was sentenced to serve 43 months in prison for his involvement in the gang and Renaldo Rodregus Camp, 40, was sentenced in 70 months in prison for his involvement as well.
