Aryan Warriors prison leader guilty in fed case
The plea ended a long-running racketeering case that accused Sellers and the white supremacist group of murder, prison guard corruption, inmate extortion and illegal drug and gambling operations.
“The Aryan Warriors made their money by manufacturing and distributing narcotics, primarily methamphetamine, by extorting money from individuals through threats and the use of violence, and running illegal gambling operations within the Nevada prison system,” Sellers said in an 11-page plea agreement that acknowledged his position of prominence within the gang.
Guards were corrupted, and women and men were enlisted to launder money and smuggle drugs into and out of prisons, the document said.
Sellers, 43, admitted stabbing fellow gang member Guy Almony several times with a makeshift metal knife while in federal custody at the North Las Vegas Detention Center in November 2007.
