BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A man described by federal investigators as the leader of New Haven’s Grape Street Crips gang has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for drug crimes.

Thirty-three-year-old Donald Ogman, also known as “Main” and “Mainy-O,” pleaded guilty last March to charges related to the distribution of crack and cocaine.

He was sentenced Tuesday in Bridgeport to 15 years and eight months in prison.

Authorities say Ogman typically bought cocaine in bulk, processed it into crack cocaine and distributed it to gang members and others in New Haven neighborhoods.

More than a dozen other suspects have pleaded guilty as a result of an investigation that federal authorities say also intercepted conversations among Grape Street Crips members discussing possible retaliation against members of the rival Bloods gang and the acquisition of guns.
