ALBANY, GA (WALB) --  Three members of the Black Gangsta Disciples are headed to prison for aggravated assault and gang terrorism.

It took a jury just one hour to convict Austin Dowdell, his brother Hadji Dowdell, and Manasseh Skinner.

Prosecutors say they beat a woman, Carvetta Moore, with beer bottles during a fight at the Sports Zone bar in July.

The three will be sentenced March 26th and could get up to 35 years. Two other members of their gang pled guilty to the charges.
