ATLANTA, GA – Attorney General Chris Carr today announced that Tyreek Raysheen Lee, 27, of Norcross, has pleaded guilty to his involvement in the trafficking of three women, including one underage female, while associated with the Last One To Take Over Gang (aka LOTTO or 30% Gang). LOTTO is a hybrid criminal street gang, which has its origins in both the Gangster Disciples and Crips national gangs. Lee has been sentenced to prison, while the State’s case against his co-defendants remains active and ongoing.
“Our Human Trafficking and Gang Prosecution Units continue to produce meaningful results in the fight to combat violent crime,” said Carr. “While this is a much larger case, this latest conviction brings us another step closer to ensuring that justice is served. We will not tolerate the abuse and exploitation of our most vulnerable Georgians, and those responsible will be held accountable.”
This case was investigated by the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Section. It was prosecuted by Senior Assistant Attorney General Hannah Palmquist, who leads the Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit, and Assistant Attorney General Tom Kegley of the Gang Prosecution Unit.
Guilty Plea and Sentence
On Monday, Nov. 20, 2023, Tyreek Raysheen Lee (aka Reek) pleaded guilty to the following charges in Gwinnett County Superior Court.
- 3 counts of Trafficking of Persons for Sexual Servitude
- 6 counts of Violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act
- 1 count of Conspiracy to Violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act
For each count, Lee was sentenced to 20 years, with the first 10 years to be served in prison and the remainder on strict probation. Each sentence is to be served concurrently.
On Feb. 8, 2023, following a major investigation conducted by the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Section, the Attorney General’s Human Trafficking and Gang Prosecution Units obtained an indictment in Gwinnett County charging eight alleged members of the LOTTO gang.
Specifically, the indictment charges each of the defendants with one count of Conspiracy to Violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. In part, the defendants are alleged to have trafficked five female victims, including one minor, to maintain and increase the reputation, power, and influence of LOTTO. They are also alleged to have recruited others to join LOTTO.
The indictment further charges seven of the eight defendants, including Tyreek Lee, with additional counts of Trafficking of Persons for Sexual Servitude, Violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, and other offenses.
