Craig Petties, the Memphis drug kingpin brother of Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul, has filed an appeal to his prison sentences.
Petties was sentenced to nine life sentences this past August. Back in 2009, Petties admitted to being involved in four murders, plus pleaded guilty to several other serious charges, including racketeering, drug trafficking and murder for hire.
Petties was moved to a high-security prison in Pennsylvania last month. The drug kingpin fled to Mexico in 2001 after being caught with 600 pounds of marijuana at his home in Memphis. He was eventually arrested and brought back to the U.S. for prosecution. At the time of his arrest, authorities seized more than $3 million dollars and over 40 luxury cars.
