Guerilla Black Gets Nine-Year Sentence For Fraud


Guerilla Black, real name Charles Tony Williamson, was sentenced to over nine years in prison on charges of credit card fraud this past friday (October 25). The West Coast rapper, known for his 2004 hit song “Compton” and his Notorious B.I.G. resemblance and rapping style, purchased over 27,000 credit card numbers from hackers who lifted the numbers from a few Seattle businesses between January 2011 and February 2012.

Black pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy, bank fraud, unauthorized access to a protected computer to facilitate fraud, access device fraud and aggravated identity theft charges back in July. He was sentenced to 110 months in prison and will be supervised for five years following his release.
