The US Attorney's office in Boston reports that Wilson "King Dubb" Peguero, 29, pleaded guilty today to RICO charges related to his role as "Inca" or leader of the Devon Street Kings, a chapter of the national Latin Kings gang.
Peguero faces sentencing on Oct. 20, with a potential sentence of up to 20 years.
According to the US Attorney's office:
Peguero produced various music videos touting his allegiance to the Latin Kings, distribution of controlled substances, and threats against rival gang members. During the investigation, various meetings were covertly recorded in which Peguero and members of the Devon Street Kings discussed the business of the racketeering enterprise. Internally, Peguero was present during meetings where members were beaten and violence against rival gangs was discussed and decided upon.
According to an affidavit by an FBI agent on the case of 62 alleged Massachusetts Latin Kings members indicted last fall, Peguero was also present in Shaun Harrison's Roxbury apartment the night Harrison, then a dean at English High School, shot one of his students in the back of the head after the teen stopped selling marijuana for him.
Harrison was convicted in 2018 in state court and received a sentence of 23 to 26 years. He was among the Latin Kings associates indicted last fall.
According to the affidavit, after Boston detectives took Harrison in for questioning from his Pompeii Street home, another detective kept watch on the residence and spotted Peguero and two other alleged Latin Kings members coming out. The detective went up to them as they stood at a Massachusetts Avenue bus stop and had them arrested as well after he discovered one had a gun in his waistband.
In another incident, the affidavit states, Peguero was captured on a recording discussing how to talk to detectives investigating a 2009 murder ten years later. The other member counseled Peguero not to try to deny he was a Latin Kings member, since he had made so many YouTube videos in which he was, but to instead admit his membership, but say he couldn't remember that far back - not with all the pills he's been popping.
