Defense attorneys are fighting a move to add two men to a list of 31 accused gang members without giving them notice, the Times Free Press reports. Prosecutors tried to include Jerry Lee McMath III and Kendale Fuqua in their civil nuisance case against the Gangster Disciples and Grape Street Crips in the East Lake Courts housing projects. The gang members on the list would face a $50 fine or up to 30 days in jail for associating with each other. McMath and Fuqua were not included in the original list, submitted in September 2016, and defense attorneys are asking District Attorney General Neal Pinkston why they are being added. They argue that Pinkston added them without notice or listed allegations.
