Before being taken into custody as a part of Operation Snowplow, a larger sting, James “Jimmy” Keene had turned to a life of crime. Once a bright young football player, he turned down multiple college football scholarships in order to be near his successful business in the Chicago area. He agreed to a plea deal that he thought would last five years, and after four years, he was granted parole. However, as part of the conspiracy, he was found to have several illegal firearms, and as a result, he was sentenced to ten years without the possibility of parole.
