Fugitive Outlaws leader takes plea deal in Milwaukee

A former longtime fugitive leader of the Outlaws motorcycle gang has pleaded guilty in exchange for a 15-year term in federal prison.

Randy "Mad" Yager, 60, was indicted on charges of racketeering and conspiracy that could have landed him in prison for life. Yager had been set to go to trial this week.

Yager, originally of Crown Point, Ind., was first indicted with 16 others in 1997.

Yager is accused of participating in murders, arson and bombings aimed at rival clubs in the 1990s, while he was a regional boss of the Outlaws. The crimes did not occur in Milwaukee, but Yager was boss of the region that included Milwaukee, a stronghold of the gang.

On the day of the bust in 1997, Yager was at a Las Vegas hotel and fled. He landed on the U.S. Marshals Service Most Wanted list and was arrested in October 2014 in Mexico, where he had been using an assumed name.

"I gave my body to my country," former Marine Charlie Linville, who had his right leg amputated below the knee after surviving a bomb blast in Afghanistan, tells PEOPLE. "And I'm proud of that. I'm proud of my service.

Queensland's anti-bikie VLAD law to be scrapped, bikies to be given control orders

Queensland's "excessively harsh" VLAD law will be scrapped and bikies given control orders similar to those placed on sex offenders and terrorists as part of a major shake-up of the state's bikie laws.

Key points:

  • Queensland Government to follow recommendation to scrap VLAD law
  • New laws to be introduced will target bikie association with consorting offence
  • Premier says existing laws to remain until new regime in place

 

The changes will be part of the State Government's response to Justice Alan Wilson's review of the state's anti-bikie legislation, which includes the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment (VLAD) Act.

State Cabinet today considered its response to the report, which was handed to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last week.

DA calls comments from Twin Peaks attorney "sadly inaccurate"

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Houston attorney says 39 Twin Peaks bikers, including two he represents, have been released from their bond obligations with no charges pending - but prosecutors called his claims "sadly inaccurate". 

Houston Attorney Paul Looney said in a press release the extended term of the McLennan County grand jury expired Thursday night at midnight and the prosecutions against those bikers are "terminated by the operation of law and their cases are dismissed."

District Attorney Abel Reyna disagreed late Thursday afternoon, releasing a statement that said, "We have not filed any dismissals in any of the remaining Twin Peaks cases.  Furthermore, any McLennan County Grand Jury can hear evidence on this matter and decide to issue additional indictments."

"This is an ongoing, continuing criminal investigation," he added.

Foreign biker gangs setting up shop in Denmark

Police say new gangs are looking to become part of the nation’s criminal underworld

A growing number of foreign biker gangs are getting a foothold in Denmark. The number of bikers rolling through the Danish countryside has exploded in the just the past three years.

The Black Jackets, Gremium and United Tribuns Forever have rolled in from Germany. No Surrender and Satudarah from the Netherlands have also opened clubhouses in Denmark. Danish police believe that the gangs are here for just one reason: Crime.

“I have no doubt that the foreign clubs want to enter the Danish criminal market and set up their own territories,” Michael Kjeldgaard, the head of investigations for the national police force Rigspolitiet told TV2 Nyheder. “I have no doubt that that is what this is all about.”

The commander did not wish to elaborate on the investigative process or timeline to this point," Denver Police Department spokesman Doug Schepman said in an e-mail in response to The Denver Post's query.
