Father, son members of 90s street gang sentenced for slew of charges

Posted: Updated:

A father and son were sentenced to prison for a slew of charges on Friday.

Winston "Pops" Cargill and his son Tammeco Cargill were sentenced to prison for racketeering, distributing marijuana, drug trafficking, and passport fraud.

They are members of the 90s street gang. Officials say Tammeco was the gang's armed enforcer and Winston was a drug supplier for the gang.

Tammeco was sentenced to 10 years in prison and Winston was sentenced to three years.

US Attorney Richard Donoghue said of the sentencing, "With these sentences, defendants Tammeco and Winston Cargill will pay the price for contributing to their street gang's corrosive impact on the quality of life and public safety in the Canarsie and Flatbush neighborhoods in Brooklyn."
