Former school principal who recruited students for Latin Kings gang enters extortion plea deal

(CNN)Massachusetts US Attorney's Office news release.

Sean Harrison struck a plea bargain last week, according to court documents. According to the plea bargain, Harrison agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to conduct corporate affairs through a pattern of racketeering and was sentenced to over 18 years in prison and he was sentenced to 36 months. It is stated that he will face "supervised release." Harrison's attorney said he had no comment on the matter.

Harrison worked at an English high school in Boston, where he served as "the dean of the academy," CNN previously reported.

Harrison was previously convicted of shooting a student he recruited in 2018 "at point-blank range in the back of the head" and is currently serving a 25-year sentence.

Officials said Harrison "attempted to murder a student who recruited into gangs and sold marijuana at the high school."

Authorities say Harrison was in contact with members of the Latin Kings during his imprisonment.

Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent for the Boston Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said in a statement: In the best interest of his students, in reality he lives a double life as a Latin king, turning endangered students into violence to further the nefarious needs of drug trafficking and gangs. I had you engaged.

Harrison's sentencing hearing on the racketeering charges is scheduled for his November 15, 2022, according to authorities.
