Bombshell dropped in Warlocks motorcycle gang murder trial

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

The murder trial of a member of the Warlocks motorcycle gang began Monday.

The lawyer for the man accused in a deadly Seminole County shootout dropped a bomb shell about a shooting involving a witness.
One of his witnesses was shot over the weekend, and if the violence keeps up, it could end in a mistrial.

David Maloney, a member of the Warlocks chapter in Philadelphia, is accused of shooting and killing three members of the rival Orlando Warlocks at a charity event in September of 2012.

Maloney, Paul Smith, Robert Eckert and Victor Amaro are all charged with second-degree homicide and attempted homicide.

The shootings happened during a fundraiser at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Winter Springs.

At the time of the incident, police said members of the Philadelphia Warlocks MC were holding a fundraiser at the VFW when members of the Orlando club showed up. They said six motorcyclists opened fire.

Vic Hells Angel to stand trial for bombing

A Victorian member of the Hells Angels has been committed to stand trial over his alleged hand in bombings targeting rival bikie gang the Bandidos.

Dennis Basic, 34, of Frankston, is alleged to have made an explosive device detonated at the Bandidos Dandenong clubhouse in July and two undetonated devices found at the Nitro gym in Hallam in September.

Basic pleaded not guilty to more than 30 charges that also include weapons charges, in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.

He also faces charges relating to the bombing of a car in Narre Warren last May.

The device used in the Narre Warren car bombing was consistent with the type of explosive used in the Dandenong bombing, Detective Senior Constable Glen Hatton said in a court statement.

The device used in the Dandenong bombing was "identical in manufacture" to the devices used at the gym, he said.

Andrew Barton Clarke-Davis, 21, has walked free after his sentence over the Broadbeach bi

Andrew Barton Clarke-Davis, 21, has walked free after his sentence over the Broadbeach bikie brawl was reduced

 

BRISBANE judge has shaved a third off a jail term handed out by the state’s Chief Magistrate to a Bandidos “prospect’’ over the now-infamous Broadbeach bikie brawl.

District Court Judge Brad Farr has accepted an appeal by Andrew Barton Clarke-Davis and cut a nine-month sentence imposed by Chief Magistrate Tim Carmody to six months. Judge Farr said the time imposed was too harsh.

Judge Carmody in January told Clarke-Davis he wished he had the power to have locked him up for longer.

Trial day set for Hells Angels case

LAKE COUNTY -- A battle for information in the case of three Hells Angels Motorcycle Club members who allegedly severely beat a member of a rival motorcycle club member concluded Friday afternoon after the judge instructed the prosecution what information it must turn over. A trial date was also scheduled.

The defense presented the motion for the information in July on behalf of defendants Timothy R. Bianchi, Nicholas F. Carrillo and Josh L. Johnson in July.

The motion was reviewed several times in court and both sides presented arguments for what the defense was entitled to receive from the prosecution, with the last two hearings approaching a compromise for a narrower and specified request from the prosecution.
