Rapper with Delaware address faces federal witness tampering charges


United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced that Charles Salley, a/k/a “Dark Lo,” a/k/a “Ron Harvey,” 37, of Clayton, DE, was indicted on charges of   witness tampering.

The Indictment alleges that on November 6, during the trial United States vs. Abdul West, et al. involving members of a  drug trafficking organization known as “Original Block Hustlaz” (or OBH), a cooperating witness received a threatening letter from Salley under the pen name “Ron Harvey,” a pseudonym Salley has used in various rap songs.

The Indictment further alleges that Salley, who also goes by the stage name “Dark Lo,” threatened physical violence against the cooperating witness and others if the witness testified at trial against Salley’s OBH associates.

On November 13, 2019, United States Magistrate Judge Lynne A. Sitarski ordered Salley detained in federal custody pending trial in this matter.

If convicted, Salley  faces a maximum possible sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment and a fine. Smiley is described as a “hardcore rapper. His videoes carry footage from Philadephia.

Salley issued a response to his earlier arrest on Twitter.
