A member of Atlanta’s notorious 30 Deep street gang has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
According to the AJC, 30 Deep member Javorris Redding, 21, was found guilty by a jury Monday of participation in criminal street gang activity, three counts of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
The prison sentence stems from Redding and an unidentified person robbing three people at gunpoint at a Motel 6 in College Park in April 2011. Authorities said they believe the robbery victims were set up by two women while partying earlier in the evening.
Two of Redding’s relatives and fellow 30 Deep members are already in prison, including Redding’s older brother George “Keon” Redding, the leader of 30 Deep, who is serving two consecutive life sentences plus 40 years for shootings that left two people dead and two others wounded.
Cousin Jonathan Redding was sentenced to life plus 70 years in prison last year for his role in the highly-publicized 2009 murder of bartender John Henderson at the Standard Food & Spirits near Grant Park and three other robberies.
