MURDER USA Two gangsters from Up the Hill Gang Sent Up The River for Decades of Fun in the Slammer

One Member Admitted to Committing a Murder and Shooting a Rival Gang Member

MURDER USABaltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge George L. Russell, III on June 10, 2016, sentenced Steven Jackson, a/k/a Cutty, age 25; and Alonzo Clea, a/k/a Zo, age 26, both of Baltimore, to 25 years in prison, and 10 years in prison, respectively, both followed by five years of supervised release, for conspiring to participate in a racketeering enterprise in connection with their gang activities as members of the “Up the Hill,” “Up da Hill” and “UDH” ( UDH) organization, which operates in the Cherry Hill section of Baltimore.

“Many shootings and murders in Baltimore City involve disputes between rival gangs,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.  “Police and prosecutors are saving lives by holding accountable the criminals who turned Cherry Hill into a war zone.” 

 

Some of these acts of violence include the August 28, 2011, murder of Little Spelman member Dewayne Jones; the January 20, 2012, murder of Little Spelman leader Dominic Hope; the June 13, 2009, non-fatal shooting of Tavon Staley; and to the August 9, 2009, murder of Charles Pratt.

According to their plea agreements, from at least 1997 to 2013, the UDH organization operated in the area of Cherry Hill known as “Up the Hill” or “Up da Hill.”  UDH members have been in a violent dispute with both the “Coppin Court” and “Little Spelman,” which are organizations involved in criminal activity in the part of Cherry Hill known as “Down the Hill,” or “Down da Hill.”  In addition to selling drugs, UDH members have also committed murders, assaults, and robberies.
