Sheff G, real name Michael Williams, has been accused of offering money and jewelry in exchange for committing acts of violence on rival gang members. 

Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow were among 32 alleged gang members charged in a 140-count indictment that was announced on Tuesday.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office alleges Williams “used the earnings from his music career to fuel gun violence in Brooklyn, by offering money and giving expensive jewelry to those who commit acts of violence.”

“Instead of using his fame and his fortune for the betterment of himself and his family and those close to him, we allege that he used that fame and fortune to elevate gang violence in Brooklyn,” DA Eric Gonzalez said at a press conference.

Back in November 2021, Sheff G was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty in connection with a traffic stop arrest earlier that year.
