Mississippi Gang Member Gets Sentenced For Racketeering Conspiracy

Jamiesfeast – A member of the Simon City Royals (SCR) gang, who is also an inmate in Mississippi, has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for his involvement in racketeering (RICO) conspiracy. This sentence includes charges of murder.

Dillon Heffker, a 33-year-old resident of New Orleans, Louisiana, has been implicated in the unlawful activities of the Simon City Royals, a notorious prison gang that is known for its violent operations within the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC).

Through their connection with the violent Gangster Disciples gang, the Simon City Royals did many illegal things, such as murder, attempted murder, assault, kidnapping, robbery, extortion, witness tampering, money laundering, traveling between states to help with racketeering, large-scale drug trafficking, and fraud. In the state prison system and across the whole state of Mississippi, the Simon City Royals were responsible for killings, attempted murders, and other violent crimes.

Records from the court show that Heffker killed another subordinate gang member with a knife and was involved in drug dealing and laundering money. According to the authorities, SCR leaders and Heffker started making plans to kill B.F. in 2016. They did this because they thought B.F. was involved in killing another SCR member.

B.F. was taken out of solitary confinement at the Wilkinson County Correctional Facility on January 31, 2018, and put in the jail pod with other SCR members, including Heffker. Someone in charge of the SCR told Heffker that other SCR members told them to attack and kill B.F. After that, Heffker and another SCR member struck and killed B.F. with knives.

On October 5, 2023, Heffker pleaded guilty to count one of an indictment, which accused him of RICO conspiracy. During a sentencing hearing on Thursday, the judge imposed a sentence of 420 months in prison for Heffker, to be followed by five years of supervised release.
