|Criminal penalty||15 years|
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.. 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. Thompson-Hairston was also the subject of an episode in the second season of the Netflix series Drug Lords.
