Aryan Brotherhood of Texas Member Sentenced for Beating
A member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas will spend the next decade in prison.
43-year-old David Harlow, also known as “Bam Bam” has been sentenced for racketeering aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit racketeering aggravated assault for his role in the severe beating of a prospective member of the ABT.
Harlow was found guilty in March of 2012 to the assault that took place in Tomball, Texas in September 2008.
He was also ordered to pay a $2,000 fine by senior U.S. District Court Judge Ewing Werlein Jr.
Court documents show that Harlow and 11 other ABT gang members beat a prospective ABT member at the home of 48-year-old Steven Walter Cook, also known as “Stainless,” one of the gang leaders.
The prospect was beaten because he violated the ABT rules of conduct.
The other 11 that beat the person have pleaded guilty to their roles in the assault.
The ABT began in the early 1980s within the Texas prison system.
