In a decade long criminal run, the Cutt Boyz used violence to control the drug trade within the B.W. Cooper Housing Complex in New Orleans. Washington became the main supplier of Heroin, while Benjamin grew his murderous reputation as a main enforcer and was eventually responsible for three murders. Following a unique investigation approach, federal authorities indicted 11 Cutt Boyz under the RICO statutes for narcotics distribution and murder. But federal authorities weren't prepared for Hurricane Katrina's catastrophic destruction in 2005, which damaged evidence and displaced witnesses. Ultimately, they were able to piece together the case and successfully convicted all 11 Cutt Boyz. Washington received a 20-year sentence, while Benjamin will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
The full biography of Patrick Dempsey.
Patrick Dempsey grew up in a small town in Maine and wanted to be an Olympic ski racer. After a bad crash ended his Olympic dream, Patrick took off for California to pursue an acting career. "Can't Buy Me Love" was a surprise hit in 1987 and Patrick became one of the hottest young actors in Hollywood. He found love with Rocky Parker, an actress 26 years his senior, but the relationship proved to be a personal and professional disaster. Rocky controlled every aspect of Patrick's life and often clashed with the directors he was working with. By the late `90s Rocky was out of the picture, Patrick was struggling to find work and he couldn't stand going to the movies because he was so bitter over the roles he didn't have a chance at. Things turned around for Patrick after he fell in love with his hairdresser, Jillian Fink. She encouraged Patrick to give his acting career another chance. Patrick won an audition for the TV drama "Grey's Anatomy" after Rob Lowe turned down the role.
