The conviction was long in coming because, it’s been more than ten years since Jean-Marie and four other Terrorist Boyz were charged for months of violence across Miami beginning in 2002. The five men were indicted in 2008.
Investigators have linked the gang to at least 12 killings and dozens of shootings, however the five men have only been charged in nine murders.
One of the members, Robert St Germain, pleaded guilty two years ago and is serving a 12-year prison sentence.
The others, Johnny Charles, also known as the ‘Angel of Death,’ Benson Cadet and Max Daniel, are still awaiting trial.
The case has been time-consuming and expensive because of the number of moving pieces between the different victims and coordinating testimonies.

In closing arguments on Monday, prosecutor Joshua Weintraub painted the portrait of a blood thirsty, trigger happy gangbanger, in ‘Twenty-four crime scenes …[I saw] some of the most violent murders imaginable,’ Weintraub told the court.

Jean-Marie’s two first-degree murder convictions were for shooting Armstrong Riviere and Stephanie Adams on a sidewalk in 2003.
Riviere had been a witness in a gun case against three of the Terrorist Boyz.
