Sakhee Hardy-Johnson, aka Lil Mick, is serving a 60-year prison sentence for the murder of up and coming rap artist L’A Capone.
L’A, whose real name is Leonard Anderson, was shot and killed at age 17 while leaving a studio on Sept. 26, 2013.
Lil Mick was found guilty of Capone’s murder in February 2017.
Momma Capone took to IG to announce the guilty verdict.
Momma Capone posted a photo of L’A with a caption, reading, “@600boy_la Im so tired but I never gave up. I fought real hard to get that justice for you like I promised #3guiltyverdicts #justice4LA. You can rest and so can I.”
Lil Mick is serving his sentence in Menard Correctional Center – the same state prison as RondoNumbaNine and Cdai.
Rondo and Cdai were close friends with L’A Capone.
On Tuesday, July 5, RondoNumbaNine was sentenced to 39 years in prison for the 2014 murder of cab driver Javan Boyd. On Thursday, July 7, he was transferred to Menard Correctional Center in Menard, IL to serve his time.
Rondo’s projected release date is Feb. 24, 2056. He is eligible for parole on Feb. 24, 2053.
Cdai was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Monday, May 9. He was transferred to Menard Correctional Center on May 17.
Cdai’s projected release date is March 5, 2055. He is eligible for parole on March 5, 2052.
Rondo, 19, and Cdai, 21, were found guilty of the Feb. 22, 2014 slaying in March.
Lil Mick, at age 17, provided a statement to police upon his arrest admitting to getting a gun before going to the studio where L’A Capone was murdered, according to Chicago Sun Times. He also admitted to being inside a parked vehicle “that would run interference in the event that police officers arrived on scene.”
Also charged in Capone’s slaying were Meiko Buchanan and Michael Mays.
Buchanan, 25, confessed to the crime while in custody awaiting trial on unrelated charges of aggravated battery of a peace officer and aggravated use of a weapon, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Meiko Buchanan was sentenced to 45 years in prison, and also serving time at Menard Correctional Center. Meiko was transferred from Cook County to Menard Correction Center in early November 2017 after learning his fate.
Buchanan’s role in the murder was driver of the “trail car,” a vehicle that follows the lead car containing the gunman, Assistant State’s Attorney Alex Molesky told the Tribune.
Buchanan allegedly said he pulled into the alley and watched the gunman sneak up on L’A and shoot him twice.
The alleged rival gang members had an ongoing dispute with Capone, Molesky said in court, according to the Tribune.
In September 2017, Momma Capone announced Buchanan was found guilty.
The caption on her post read, “I know u in heaven smiling down right now got some justice for you today 1 down 2 more to go #justiceforlacapone.”
Her second IG post related to Capone’s trial read, “Guilty.”
