ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A reputed Albany gang leader is going to prison for at least six years. Not for gang crimes, but on domestic violence charges.

Albany Gang Task Force leaders say 20-year-old Kelvin Drake was the sect leader of the Westside Crips. But Wednesday he received a 15-year sentence for two counts of aggravated assault, the first six years to be served in prison.

Drake was found guilty Wednesday of firing shots at his former girlfriend and another woman at these apartments in East Albany May 23, 2007. Prosecutors say Drake fired nearly a dozen shots, but did not hit either woman.

"Gang activity just leads to all these similar violent acts, and in this instance, other violent acts are what got him convicted. And that's what we want to make sure, we can prevent and make the community safer," said Dougherty Chief Asst. D.A. Greg Edwards.

Drake was also found guilty of two counts of gun crimes.
