The leader of 30 Deep — one of Atlanta’s most violent and prolific street gangs — was sentenced to two life sentences plus 40 years for killing two men and wounding two others in a series of shootings in 2007.
George “Keon” Redding was convicted Monday of two murder charges, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was sentenced after the jury returned with the guilty verdicts.
During the trial that started Jan. 24, one witness used profanity in regards to the judge and the prosecutor. Another witness was beaten by other 30 Deep members while they were in the Fulton County Jail; the attack was recorded by surveillance camera.
