The Fascinating Story of “White Boy Rick”: Feds Built Him into Drug Kingpin at Age 14, Then Threw Him in Prison for Life

Meet Richard Wershe. To other convicts in the Michigan penal system and the handful of DEA and FBI agents who once employed him as an informant, Wershe is known by the more memorable moniker, White Boy Rick.

Wershe was a baby-faced, blond-haired teenager who grew up in the the middle class fringes of Metro Detroit in the 1980s. Around the time he hit puberty, he transformed into White Boy Rick, a prolific drug dealer and teenage prodigy in the cutthroat and vicious streets of the Motor City. He ranked as high in the public imagination as such colorful Detroit drug heavyweights as the Chambers Brothers, Maserati Rick, the notorious Best Friends. By the time he was 16, he was dating the beautiful black niece of the Mayor of Detriot. White Boy Rick had arrived.

He had also been recruited as one of the DEA’s prized confidential informants two years earlier, when he was 14. According to Wershe, a federal narcotics task force consisting of officers from the Detroit Police Department, the FBI and the DEA pushed him into the role of drug lord and played up his image. “They turned me into an urban legend,” Rick says from a payphone at the Oaks Correctional Facility, near the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.

“I was just a kid when the agents pulled me out of high school in the ninth grade and had me out to three in the morning every night. They gave me a fake ID when I was 15 that said I was 21 so I could travel to Vegas and to Miami to do drug deals.” Rick ended his relationship with authorities after serving two years as an informant. Less than a year later, he was arrested for possession with intent to deliver 650 grams of cocaine. He wasn’t even 18.

Wershe was pinched on the same Detroit street where he grew up, carrying the drugs, $25,000 in cash, and driving a shiny new Ford Thunderbird that was registered in his girlfriend’s name. She was five years older than him, married to Eastside drug kingpin Johnny Curry, and, as luck would have it, the niece of Mayor Coleman Young. Authorities later found eight kilos of cocaine that they linked to Wershe. On January 15, 1988, he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison under Michigan’s draconian 650 lifer law, which has since been abolished.

    Snitches get ditches.

    This guy was just 14 years old, who didn’t really get that? He wasn’t a snitch in the beginning he was unethically groomed and exploited by Michigan’s finest, their drug task force…the police approached him. I equate this to child abuse/neglect and had a parent done the same to a child the state most certainly would have intervened. Sadly this guy is nothing more than a product of a failed war on drugs and unethical police-work, he was essentially a throw away, having no value to them other than their direct agenda and exploited by paid state officials, with tax payer money. If you paid taxes in Michigan you helped the abusers of this child.

    Who has the right to make that kind of decision on a teens life, maybe this kid might have wanted to be something besides a Kingpin one day or maybe not (it isn’t like he had long to figure out at 14, he had barely begun to live life)…it’s no ones right to have determined this kids fate so early on. Playing games with children’s lives by sacrificing them to the system is shoddy, sub-par police-work…might I also add lacking in creativity, cruel, cowardly, sick, perverse, insane and shameful. Who is really patrolling our streets and how does this make anyone feel safe? My child is 14, let me ever catch an officer of the law sworn to uphold said law and protect its citizens ever approach my child with such a backwards offer and keep his job or anyone who advised them to do so…they will never work in anything other than security when I’m done.

    The police groomed him to be the snitch he became and when he refused (2 yrs later) to continue snitching, it was too late for this 14 year old. Who is to say what he might have become if he would have been given the right opportunities, intervention and educated guidance. Instead, he gets to rot in jail on a Life sentence created by equally sick politicians to crack down on drugs, on a 650 Lifer law that also no longer exist and was created to remove Kingpins from the streets. Did anyone get he was a minor when arrested (16)? In all actuality 45% percent of individuals sentenced with the 650 lifer law were first-time offenders, strictly convicted for life without parole and after abolishment of the law, it still didn’t guarantee a reduced sentence or parole…it offered a maybe at best.

    I personally believe even though this guy was wrong in the sell of cocaine, (which might have just been another setup by the police, since he mysteriously had the EXACT amount on him (650 grams) needed to enact/trigger this barbaric life sentence in the first place), he has a right to a life and not life in prison.

    Wershe was taught directly from the police on how to break the law given fake id’s, made to leave school, stay out past curfew and participate in risky drug related activity by officers we were all raised to respect,obey and sometimes fear by our parents, schools and public officials from the time we start talking at a tender age of 2; what 14 year old wouldn’t become a criminal? This is how the war on drugs has exploited our youth in the US, be warned or remain further apathetic.

  3. BCBilly on

    Probably somewhere else with his wife and kids.

  4. Bud Grinder on

    He’s a Goddamn low-life scumbag rat. He got what was coming to him… actually, that he’s still alive is too good for him. Pond scum is a higher life-form. Let him rot.

  5. Anonymous on

    There is no “honor among thieves” – or crack dealers. Is one life destroying punk more or less noble than another? I don’t think so. So to get on one scumbag for turning in some other scumbag seems like a waste of time.

    These guys were peddling crack. Last time I checked that’s not really in the same league as cannabis.

    I’m glad they ratted on each other and hope they all spend eternity in prison. Crack dealers deserve no protection.

    Williams, Dennis O. Fidelity Bravery Integrity No Way! Dorrance Publishing Company 2009

    In 1979 FBI Supervisory Special Agent Dennis O. Williams moved across the country when he was promoted from the FBI’s Los Angeles Division to a supervisory position at FBI Headquarters. Soon after his arrival, Williams discovered that the mover had defrauded the FBI by billing for a higher weight of his household goods than actually existed. As Williams pursued the matter, he discovered a cover-up at FBI HQ; his attempts to expose this conspiracy resulted in his receiving threats and becoming the subject of retaliation. Though an investigation by the FBI Washington Field Office demonstrated that Williams was correct in his suspicions, the cover-ups continued for decades, eventually leading to a conspiracy to deceive the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding an inquiry into the involvement of Thomas J. Pickard.

    Pickard was the acting director of the FBI when 9/11 occurred, despite Williams’ repeated warnings to the White House that Pickard did not have the integrity for such a position. The 9/11 Commission report reflects that the Phoenix Division of the FBI produced a memorandum dated July 10, 2001, advising FBI HQ that an inordinate number of supporters of Osama Bin Laden had attended civil aviation universities and colleges and would be in a position to conduct terror activity against civil aviation targets. Williams believes that Pickard’s testimony that no managers at FBI headquarters saw the Phoenix memo before September 11 constitutes a red flag indicating a conspiracy to defraud the 9/11 Commission.

    i totally agree that this guy was just a big snitch. This article is just showing how sketchy the feds are. The fact that he got caught for selling cocaine makes the situation different as well, I do think cocaine is harmful and should be illegal. Maybe he would have stuck to weed if the feds didn’t step into his impressionable life at 14 and show him the money he could have. In conclusion, don’t rat out the people you work with.

    So he was a snitch and ratted on his competition to get big, when he got big he thought he was bigger then the ones that put him there. I think he should be happy he’s in there rather then in the ground where I am sure the people he ratted on want him.

    Where are the stories of the one’s he ratted on? I am sure they are in the joint still on drug charges, and I would feel a lot more sorry for them then I do some snitch who got what he deserved. The cops don’t let you be a drug dealer and make loads of money for no reason, he learned that the hard way.

    He’s serving time for being a snitch as far as I see it and that’s time well deserved how many families did he destroy by snitching? Seriously people within “Cannabis Culture” should understand the repercussions a rat has on others in the drug world.

    Also the way you shoe horn black people into these stories like it makes a huge difference they are black is really disturbing to me. Why does that even matter? Because he was with a black chick he got busted? No because he was a rat who decided not to be a rat and got pinched.

    Is it because he was 14 I am supposed to feel bad? Because I don’t. I bet he wasn’t flippin on other 14 year olds now was he? Maybe grown men and women with families perhaps?

    Seriously find someone he rolled on. That might actually be a story. “Police let this guy sell drugs but put me in jail” Seems like a lot better story then “feel bad for this rat because he was a minor while ratting”

    LOL try again.
