The leader of a violent D.C. street crew was sentenced to 49 years in prison for a months-long rampage in 2008.

Joseph A. Jenkins, 29, was one of four members of the Todd Place Crew, who were among the first defendants to be convicted under a criminal street gang law passed by the D.C. Council in 2006. 

Jenkins, also known as "Boogie," was also found guilty of first-degree murder while armed, assault with a deadly weapon, firearms violations and other crimes.

In a four-month span in the spring and early summer of 2008, the Todd Place Crew was responsible for  a series of shootings that led to one death and the wounding of 12 other people — including innocent bystanders.
