Former Dipset member Max B. was found guilty of murder conspiracy and robbery charges today (June 9).
Prosecutors accused Max B., born Charly Wingate, of coordinating the robbery of two men at a Holiday Inn located in Northern New Jersey.
Max B.‘s ex-girlfriend Gina Conway testified that she and a stepbrother named Kelvin Leerdam were to rob two men of over $40,000 in cash during the robbery.
The plan went awry and resulted in the death of one of the robbery victims, David Taylor, who was shot at point-blank range in the face by Leerdam.
Conway testified against Max B. and Leerdam, in exchange for a sentence of 18 years on armed robbery and manslaughter charges.
Sources have told AllHipHop.com that Max B. was convicted on nine out of the 11 charges stacked against him.
Max B is scheduled to be sentenced July 30.
He faces up to 25 years in prison for his part in the crime.
