GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

On Friday a man was sentenced after conspiring with members from a gang in Greenville County. 

Antonio Devon Williamson was sentenced at the federal court in Anderson for a conspiracy to murder. 

Evidence was presented against Williamson that he had conspired with members of the Elm Street Piru Bloods gang, in Greenville, SC in attempt to murder a witness in an upcoming state trial.

The witness had been the victim of an armed robbery committed by Brian Lewis, the leader of the Elm Street Piru gang.

In order to avoid a lengthy sentence for that crime, Lewis commissioned Williamson, and other gang members to murder the witness. 

However, law enforcement was able to intercept this conspiracy before the murder, saving the victim's life.

United States District Judge Timothy M. Cain sentenced Williams to 60 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release.
