Three "Gansta Disciples" found guilty
The Dougherty County District Attorney's office says 21-year-old Austin Dowdell, his brother 28-year-old Hadji Dowdell, and 24-year-old Manasseh Skinner were found guilty of aggravated assault and street gang terrorism. 18-year-old Arsenio Jones and 23-year-old Willie Simmons are scheduled to plead guilty at a later date to the same charges.
Authorities say charges stem from an argument outside of the Sports Zone on North Slappey Boulevard in July of 2009 that led to a fight. The victim of the assault, a female, was severely beaten.
