Jemeker Thompson
Born
Criminal penalty15 years[1]

Jemeker Thompson-Hairston is a criminal who rose to the top of the cocaine trade during the peak of the 1980s crack epidemic in Los Angeles.

Her memoir, Queen Pin, co-written with David Ritz, was published in 2010.[3].[4] In a mixed review, Kirkus Reviews said that it "lacks the salacious elements that make criminal memoirs compelling," but noted that it "may appeal to believers" due to its religious content.[3] Thompson-Hairston was also the subject of an episode in the second season of the Netflix series Drug Lords.[5]
