On Thursday, 63-year-old Shaun Harrison was sentenced to over 18 years in prison on racketeering charges. Harrison is an ex-member of the Latin Kings gang and was employed with the Boston Public Schools.

As an academic dean at English High School, Harrison is said to have used his role to get students to be a part of the Latin Kings gang. He was given a 218-month prison sentence that included credit for 98 months for time served. He was also given three years of supervised release.

Last August, Harrison pled guilty to conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity.

In 2018, Harrison was found guilty of shooting a student in the back of the head. He had believed that the student had taken money from him, didn’t want to sell drugs anymore, and might tell authorities about the operation. The student lived, and Harrison was given a 25-year prison sentence for that offense.

The Latin Kings have been described as a “violent criminal enterprise comprised of thousands of members across the United States.”
