Former president of Afro Dogs gang headed to federal prison

Another defendant in the Afro Dogs drug case is going to federal prison.

Dewey Taylor, the only defendant found guilty by a jury last year, was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to 12 years in prison for his role in the drug ring.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas S. Duszkiewicz said Taylor was convicted of eight felony charges, including distributing cocaine.

Defense lawyer Andrew C. LoTempio said Taylor, former president of the local chapter of the Afro Dogs motorcycle club, apologized to the court and his family for his criminal conduct.
