ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  An Albany gang leader pleads guilty to nine counts of gang crimes.

The man prosecutors say is the head of the 'Westside Rattlers' will be sentenced later, but he could get more than 100 years in prison.

22-year-old Michael Williams pleaded guilty late Wednesday to nine crimes, including three counts of street gang participation, two counts of perjury, and attempting to interfere with evidence.

Prosecutors say Williams and the Rattlers were involved in a gang fight in July 2008.

They say Williams took members of his gang to the hospital where he told them to lie to Police.
