21 indicted in Jefferson Parish racketeering ring
Posted on Feb 27, 2015 in Courts, Criminal Defense, Drugs, Local Issues
21 people were indicted yesterday under seal for racketeering and other various charges in Jefferson Parish. Many of the indicted belong to the Harvey Hustlers gang, involved in the sale of illegal drugs, guns, and violent crime, including murder, around the West Bank. Often, indictments are filed in open court, however, they usually file under seal if not all suspects are in custody. Due to the nature of the crimes involved and the gang aspect, filing under seal is not so uncommon. Many of the names indicted for racketeering are also being charged with various violent offenses around the Harvey area stemming from what the District Attorney believes to be gang activity.
