According to Justice.gov, Jones pled guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of participating in a narcotics distribution conspiracy.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman stated in court, “Jamel Jones admitted in open court to his involvement in Nine Trey and distributing drugs for the gang. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to keep our communities safe and vigorously investigate and prosecute those who bring violence and drugs into our communities.”
