Via Hot 97

The man who put the paws on R. Kelly a few months ago has been sentenced to life. 

It doesn’t seem like his involvement with beating up R. Kelly has anything to do with it, the inmate had bigger fish to fry. As reported on Hot New Hip Hop, the Latin Kings inmate, Jeremiah Shane Farmer, was sentenced to life in prison for his role in a racketeering case that included two murders. 

Back in 1999, Farmer played a role in the brutal murders of two seniors, Marion Lowry, 74, and Harvey Siegers, 67. The victims were repeatedly hit with a hammer. 

Farmer admitted to attacking the disgraced R&B singer, however, he claims, “the government made him do it.” Farmer claims he wanted to shed light on corruption happening in the jail.

A Latin Kings gang member who admitted to attacking singer #RKelly in federal jail in Chicago has been sentenced to life in prison, for a drug racketeering conviction that included the murders of two Hammond businessmen in 1999. In July 2019, 39-year-old Jeremiah Farmer was convicted of racketeering conspiracy and drug conspiracy charges. As part of the racketeering conviction, a federal jury found Farmer killed Calumet Auto Rebuilders owners Marion Lowry, 74, and Harvey Siegers, 67, by beating them to death with a hammer at their business in Hammond on June 25, 1999. Farmer is among 43 members of the Latin Kings charged with a racketeering conspiracy dating back to 1999, according to federal prosecutors. The conspiracy involved acts of murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, sex trafficking, and drug distribution. “The defendant terrorized the community through his violent actions and today’s sentence ensures an extremely dangerous individual has been taken off the streets,” said FBI Indianapolis Special Agent in Charge Paul Keenan. “This is an example of how the collective efforts of the FBI and our law enforcement partners impact crime in our neighborhoods and remain a top priority.” In a legal filing in September, Farmer admitted to attacking R&B singer R. Kelly in his jail cell. Kelly is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago while he awaits trial on sex crime charges in multiple jurisdictions. In the handwritten filing to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, titled, “The Government Made Me Attack R. Kelly,” Farmer claimed he was “forced” to beat the Grammy winner. Farmer wrote a motion to the appeals panel asking for an extension for filing his docketing statement in his racketeering case. He complained that the COVID-19 pandemic had made it so he could not use the library computer to make legal copies in a timely fashion and was denied legal copies of his motions by an attorney and a judge. He also claimed that every attorney who had been assigned to him had been “ineffective and conspired against” him. “
