A prison secretary for the Latin Kings has pled guilty to racketeering charges.
Sandra “Queen Dream” Correa, 35, of Peabody was one of 62 gang members indicted in December 2019 for participation in an alleged racketeering and drug-selling conspiracy.
On Tuesday, Dec. 22, Correa pled guilty to conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, more commonly referred to as RICO conspiracy, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts said.
Correa was a member of the Latin Kings’ Massachusetts Department of Corrections Chapter. She was a secretary with the gang, according to the Boston Herald.
Correa was responsible for transferring messages from the Latin Kings to incarcerated members. The messages included identities of those who would be targeted for violence in the jails and prisons, the locations of incarcerated members, the standing of certain individuals with the gang, and the status of disputes and alliances with other gangs, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
On the RICO conspiracy charge, Correa faces up to 20 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000. She will be sentenced at a later date.
Law enforcement agencies that participated in the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of Correa include the FBI, Massachusetts Department of Correction, New Bedford Police, District Attorneys in Suffolk and Bristol counties, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
