CHICAGO – A leader of a Chicago street gang who federal prosecutors claimed ran a heroin market on the city’s West Side has been sentenced to 38 years in prison.
Dana Bostic was sentenced Monday for allegedly controlling a faction of the New Breeds street gang that sold heroin in a 12-block area.
Prosecutors said Bostic was regularly “at war” with rival gangs and had a reputation for violence.
He was arrested but not convicted in 2002 in the murder of a rival gang member.
According to prosecutors, Bostic earned thousands of dollars a day in heroin sales.
