A member of the Aryan Warriors has been sentenced to 11 years in a federal prison for his role in a prison gang that dealt drugs, engaged in murder and corrupted jail guards.
Kory Crossman was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Kent Dawson as part of a plea deal with the federal government.
Crossman already has served 32 months of a 52-month sentence for a weapons possession charge. Dawson agreed to allow the new sentence to run concurrently with his present prison term.
Fourteen members of the prison gang were indicted in 2007 on charges related to distributing methamphetamine and promoting white supremacy through the use of violence and extortion. The gang was active inside and outside of Nevada’s prison system.
