HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A reputed gang leader has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for conspiracy to commit prohibited acts related to racketeering.

U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis, in a news release Friday, said 39-year-old Jason Marshall Bullock, of Seminary, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett.

Bullock, who has been in custody since July 2013, was charged in the racketeering conspiracy as the “Prince of Mississippi,” a position of high leadership in the Mississippi chapter of the Simon City Royals criminal street gang operating in the Hattiesburg area. The indictment listed several elements of the racketeering charge, including attempted murder, kidnapping, bank robbery, drug distribution and bribery.

Bullock has also faced numerous state court charges over the years, including grand larceny, selling marijuana, aggravated assault and perjury, according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections. He was most recently sentenced in state court in 2008 to four years as a habitual offender for perjury.
