North London gang boss jailed

Terry Adams, 52, reputed leader of a North London, England, gang known as the "A-Team" is now behind bars after a 10-year investigation that could have cost law enforcement as much as $95 million (US), according to a report by Ian Hepburn of the U.K. Sun.

Adams (right) reportedly admitted to conspiring to hide the proceeds of illicit enterprises. He faces up to 14 years in prison.

The underworld organization is believed responsible for the deaths of 23 people, while it engaged in drug-trafficking, gambling and money-laundering.
