Luis Felipe (born May 11, 1961), also known as "King Blood" is the founder of the New York chapter of the organized crime gang known as the Almighty Latin Kings and Queens Nation. Born in Havana, Cuba, Felipe was a Cuban who came to the United States in the 1980 Mariel Boatlift. Six years later, in 1986, he founded the New York chapter of the Latin Kings.
In 1995, he was convicted of ordering multiple murders from prison by writing to members of the Latin Kings on the outside. Judge John S. Martin Jr. sentenced him to life imprisonment plus 45 years.
Additionally, the judge added some extraordinary conditions. Surprising even prosecutors, Judge Martin said Felipe must serve the sentence in solitary confinement. He forbade him to write or be visited by anyone except his lawyer and close relatives, of whom Felipe has none. Finally, the judge said that he himself, rather than the Federal Bureau of Prisons, would control the case.
Felipe is currently incarcerated at ADX Florence.
