Syracuse, NY (WIBX) - The fourth of eleven Syracuse V-Not gang members being tried in federal court has pleaded guilty to her involvement in multiple crimes.

According to the state’s Northern District United States Attorney, Richard Hartunian, 23 year-old Riadda Travet admitted to charges including carrying a loaded revolver, assault, participation in several shootings and tampering with a witness.

Travet faces up to life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release if she leaves prison.

From 2003 until May of this year, the V-Not gang is alleged to have held gang territory in Syracuse to sell crack and marijuana, used violence against other gangs and routinely carried and used guns.

All eleven members are charged with engaging in racketeering activity, including murder, drug trafficking and robbery. The indictment’s murder goes back to November of 2010 when Kahari Smith, a member of the V-Not Gang, allegedly killed Kihary Blue, a rival gang member in downtown Syracuse.

Cases against the other seven co-defendants are still pending.
