GS9 Member Santino Boderick Convicted for Conspiracy, Assault and More
GS9 member Santino Boderick, otherwise known as Cueno and an associate of Bobby Shmurda, was convicted on charges of conspiracy, attempted murder, attempted assault, reckless endangerment and more on Friday (Nov. 18), according to Bridget G. Brennan, New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor.
Boderick's conviction is due to his participation in a gang war, which resulted in shootings in New York City and Miami. Boderick was found guilty on 23 counts.
According to a press release provided by the Special Narcotics Prosecutor's office, evidence proved Boderick was present at four shootings, including three in which he himself was a shooter. His DNA was found on three guns.
“The trial proved Santino Boderick was involved in shocking violence and brazenly believed himself immune from prosecution. He was convicted of shooting up a tree-lined street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn that was crowded with people enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon. Hours later, a few blocks away, he wore the same clothes as he was videotaped dancing with GS9 members performing at the Barclay Center,” Brennan said. “I am thankful to the jury for their service and attention in this case, which has resulted in the conviction of one of the principle shooters in the GS9 gang, whose acts of violence spread across multiple cities and a two-year period.”
In September, Bobby Shmurda accepted a plea deal for murder conspiracy, his seven-year sentence accounting for time served. "With credit for 2 years already served and good time credit will hopefully permit him to be home in approximately 3 1⁄2 years and resume his remarkable career," his attorney said.
