Prosecutors have called it a violent street crew in Rochester. Now a member of the “Chain Gang” will be off the streets for a while.

Russel Hampton, 23, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. He was convicted of drug trafficking, murder, attempted murder and weapons possession.

In 2009, federal agents arrested 28 members of the "Chain Gang" or "Wolfpack". They all have been convicted.

Investigators say the group was responsible for violence in the area of Chamberlain Street and Garson Avenue in Rochester.
