Nevada Prison Gang Leader Sentenced In Stabbing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The leader of a white supremacist prison gang in Nevada already serving a life sentence for the 1990 murder of a Reno convenience store clerk has been given another 20 years for stabbing an inmate he feared might become a government informant.

Aryan Warrior leader Ronald “Joey” Sellers told U.S. District Judge Kent Dawson inLas Vegason Wednesday he had no remorse for the 2007 attack on the other inmate at the North Las VegasDetention Center.

The 43-year-old Sellers and 12 other gang members were convicted in 2009 of federal racketeering and drug conspiracy charges related to the gang that operated both inside and outside the state prison system.

Prosecutors say the gang offered protection to white prisoners and controlled others through violence and extortion.
