MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Akilah Crittenden on Tuesday, April 1st to three-and-a-half years in prison and an additional four years of extended supervision.

Crittenden reached a plea deal earlier this month in the case which was filed against him in October 2013.

Crittenden was initially charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon and resisting an officer.

In court on March 11th, Crittenden pleaded guilty to the possession of a firearm by a felon charge. The other two charges against him were dismissed but read in.

Prior to the plea deal, Crittenden was set to stand trial in the case.

Crittenden was arrested during a traffic stop near 36th and Burleigh on October 5th, 2013.

Police say they initially pulled Crittenden over because he wasn’t wearing his seat belt. Police caught up with Crittenden and say he tried hiding his loaded gun in a shelving unit at O’Reilly Auto Parts — behind a bottle of motor oil.

On Milwaukee streets, investigators say Crittenden is known by the nickname “Kill” and prosecutors say he is the leader of the gang called “The Murda Mob.” Court documents show The Murda Mob was connected to homicides, drugs, hundreds of armed robberies and threats to kill police officers.
