Raymond Betts, a high-level member of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang, was sentenced to 10 years in prison last Friday for conspiracy to distribute wholesale quantities of heroin on the West Side of Chicago. 56-year-old Betts, who holds the rank of “prince” in the gang, was charged with conspiracy to possess a controlled substance with the intent to distribute in May of 2019.
On eight occasions from December 2018 to March 2019, Betts or a co-conspirator acting on his behalf distributed 136.4 grams of heroin to a law enforcement confidential source. Seven of the distributions occurred in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, while one deal was allegedly conducted in south suburban Riverdale.
Throughout his interactions with the confidential source, Betts discussed his plans to expand his drug trafficking enterprise, specifically into Northern Indiana. Betts pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin in January of 2023.
Betts’ fellow gang members and co-conspirators Angela Bell, 52, of Chicago, and Maurice Williams, aka “Big Fella”, “Big Ride” and, “Naz”, 54, of Riverdale both pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin. Williams’ sentencing date is set for July 14, 2023. Bell’s sentencing date is set for May 26, 2023.
