Prominent Gang Member sent to Prison for killing 3 Men in Athens

Athens, GA: Three men in Athens lost their lives in a terrible conspiracy, and recently, two prominent members of the infamous Gangster Disciples were sentenced to prison for their roles in the crime.

The 35-year-old Atlanta resident Philmon Deshawn Chambers, also known as “Dolla Phil” among gang members, was given a total of three life sentences plus 120 months supervised release after serving two consecutive life terms. Chambers, a prominent figure in the Gangster Disciples, was found guilty on numerous counts, including RICO Conspiracy, murder, and the use of a handgun that caused death.

Thirty years in prison, to be served concurrently, followed by five years of supervised release, was handed down to Andrea Paige Browner, 29, of Athens, who goes by the name “Drea” and is a leader of the Sisters of the Struggle, the female equivalent to the Gangster Disciples. The pivotal part that Browner played in the violent gang activities was brought to light by her conviction on comparable crimes.

Following a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the killings in December 2018, the federal jury reached a verdict on August 17, 2023.

As a component of the Project Safe Neighborhoods campaign, the case brought to light the Gangster Disciples’ substantial criminal activities. Among these activities was the premeditated murder of Walter Brown and the following assassinations of two persons who were erroneously thought to be informants. In order to keep its grip on power and influence, the gang resorted to these and other forms of violence and intimidation.

Despite entering plea bargains, two of the co-defendants are currently awaiting sentencing. Two defendants, Shabazz Larry Guidry, 29, of Decatur, and Robert Maurice Carlisle, 37, of Lithonia, have pleaded guilty to RICO crimes and their sentencing is scheduled on March 27.

In a related case, 35-year-old Lesley Chappell Green of Stone Mountain was convicted on comparable charges and sentenced to life in prison on February 20. “Grip” was the gang name for Green, and he was an integral part of the gang’s enforcement team, which used physical force to discipline members.

This case revolves around the December 10, 2018, homicide of Walter Brown in Athens, Georgia, who was a member of the Gangster Disciples. After Brown’s killing, Philmon Deshawn Chambers and Andrea Paige Browner wanted revenge on the people they thought were responsible. This set in motion a chain reaction that ended with further murders and a massive police investigation.
