Aryan Brotherhood of Texas Members Kelley Ray Elley and Jamie Grant Loveall Plead Guilty
Two Aryan Brotherhood of Texas members have pleaded guilty to federal racketeering charges.
This week, Kelley Ray Elley of Austin and Jamie Grant Loveall of Houston, also known as “Dutch,” pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity.
According to court documents, Elley, Loveall, and other ABT gang members and associates agreed to commit multiple acts of murder, robbery, arson, kidnapping, and narcotics trafficking.
According to the U.S. Attorney's office, the members reportedly met on a regular basis at various locations throughout Texas to report on gang-related business, collect dues, commit disciplinary assaults against fellow gang members, and discuss acts of violence against rival gang members.
Elley and Loveall have admitted to being members of the ABT criminal enterprise by pleading guilty to the racketeering charges.
The men are among 36 defendants charged with conducting racketeering activity through the ABT criminal enterprise, among other charges. So far, 26 defendants have pleaded guilty.
Elley and Loveall are scheduled to be sentenced on October 7th, 2014, and each faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
