Barry “The Baron” Mills found his calling as the leader of the white supremacist prison gang the Aryan Brotherhood. He’s allegedly responsible for at least 14 homicides that happened within the course of almost two decades, though he is been in prison for the majority of his life. He was able to avert the death penalty, and is serving a prison sentence of four consecutive life terms with no chance for parole in the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility Prison in Colorado.
Mills is allegedly responsible for at least 14 homicides that happened within the course of almost two decades, even though he’s experienced prison almost all of his life. In accordance with national prosecutors, Mills continues to be jailed for nearly all of his life, starting in 1969 following an armed robbery conviction.
In 1997, Mills and his right hand-man, Tyler Bingham, ordered their associates to execute a race war against a competing prison gang, the D.C. Blacks. A race riot ensued in a penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, during which two black prisoners were killed.
Right following the war, high ranking AB member Alan Benton supplied the major break in the instance when he chose to leave the AB behind and join forces together with the government. Along with other members of the AB, Mills was indicted on several charges, including conspiracy, drug trafficking, racketeering and murder. Mills was convicted of several charges, including inciting a race riot—making him eligible for the death penalty.
Following a jury deadlocked on the death penalty, in November 2006, a 58-year old Mills received an mechanically imposed prison sentence of four consecutive life terms with no chance for parole. He’s now serving his term in the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility Prison in Florence, Colorado.
