Being a changed man won't keep you from the pen



Another group of Hidden Valley Kings members were sentenced yesterday. I hadn't noticed that one member, Emmanuel Ellis Keller, was ordered earlier this week to serve more than 24 years in prison.

Last year, CL talked to his cousin in a story about Charlotte gangs:

Deamasha Crosby, 17, says the arrest of her cousin, alleged Kings member, Emmanuel Ellis Keller, was unfair. The 23-year-old man, now in federal custody, stands accused of distributing crack in August 2006 and February of this year. "That's not him," Crosby says. "He's a totally changed man. He has a child," she says, as a toddler she identifies as Keller's one-year-old son plays on the floor nearby.
