In January, Melvin Summers, a leader of a Bloods set in Moss Point, MS, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for trafficking crack. He broke down crying, pleading with the judge, “Please don’t do me like this. Oh, please, Lord. Oh Lord, have mercy. Please don’t do me like this.”
That sentence was compounded on Friday, when U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden found him guilty of slinging weed, too. Summers was sentenced to seven years and five months and fined $5,000 for carrying a firearm while trafficking drugs. He caught an additional five years for conspiring to possess with intent to distribute. Those terms are set to run concurrently with his previous 12-year sentence, according to the Sun-Herald.
Also sentenced was Summers’s wife, Allicia Yvette Graves, 29. She was accused of conspiring to help him in his enterprise and bought him a gun under her name. She admitted to buying the gun for Summers at Pascagoula Pawn & Gun, LLC Pawn Mart II, in April 2015. Graves was sentenced to two years in prison and fined $1,000 for conspiracy and 19 months for making false statements to buy a firearm. She will remain free until she is notified where she will have to go to serve her term.
Summers had finished a prison sentence for drug charges in 2008, but he dove back into the game. From 2008 until March 2012, he sold more than 1,798 kilos of bud and used a submachine gun while doing so, according to court testimony. However both Summers and Graves were just charged for selling less than 50 kilos of weed in Jackson County on two days in April 2015.
