“King of Flint,” Cliff Mac is in for a hire-for-murder charge that could land him up to 20 years imprisonment.
The rapper, whose real name is Clifton E. Terry, III, allegedly caught up in the failed attempt to murder a Sterling Heights woman in Nov 2020.
“Based on the charges of conspiring to commit murder-for-hire and for committing murder-for-hire resulting in personal injury, Terry faces a maximum of twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000,” the Department of Justice, U.S . Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Michigan said.
The 31-year-old rapper faced charges of hiring an assassin to kill the woman for $10,000 cash.
Cliff Mac allegedly conspired to “murder-for-hire resulting in personal injury and using a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.”
The Flint rapper is alleged to have engaged the services of one Andre D. Sims to carry out the murder plot a year and nine months ago.
“The grand jury had previously indicted defendant Andre D. Sims, 25, of Grand Rapids, on Mar 16, 2022, for his role in the murder-for-hire plot with Terry.” the Justice Department release added.
The Failed Assassination Attempt indicting Cliff Mac – The Story
Having finalized with Cliff Mac on the murder plot, Sims left Grand Rapids for Flint, where he obtained a vehicle. “In the early morning of Nov 28, 2020, Sims drove to the victim’s residence in Sterling Heights and parked across the street. When the victim left her residence several hours later, Sims approached her vehicle and fired seven to eight gunshots at the victim. Despite being shot multiple times, the victim survived,” the indictment stated.
The shooting, captured on the victim’s home security system, has been on different media platforms.
The indictment also states that Sims drove to a nearby apartment complex after the shooting and left his vehicle. Cliff Mac eventually picked him up afterward from the complex. The “King of Flint” then consented to “pay Sims $2,500 for the failed hit.”
