San Antonio judge hands star witness in Bandidos trial five years in prison, instead of life

(2 images) --- A former high-ranking member of the Bandidos who was the first to publicly testify about the inner workings and criminal dealings of the outlaw motorcycle club was sentenced Wednesday to a reduced sentence of five years in prison without parole.

“I want to apologize to my family for everything I put them through,” Justin Cole Forster, 34, told Senior U.S. District Judge David Ezra. “I take responsibility for my actions. I am truly sorry for my actions. … I’m ready to put this behind me and move on with my life and be a contributing member of society.”

The judge noted that Forster was “no meek and mild participant in the Bandidos. This was no Don Knotts so to speak.”

Did prosecutor hide evidence in Pagans' murder case? 3 staffers say he may have

Three long-time staff members in the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office have come forward to accuse their boss, Prosecutor Damon Tyner, of possibly hiding evidence in a high-profile murder case. 

The employees -- one current and two former staffers -- claim in an explosive letter that Tyner failed to disclose information that potentially could have helped the suspect's defense "so as not to damage the prosecution of the case."

Ferdinand "Freddy" Augello, the Cape May County chapter president of the Pagans, was found guilty last week of conspiring to murder well-known radio host April Kauffman in 2012. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 5.

Police records: Upland council candidate Rudy Zuñiga is Vagos outlaw motorcycle gang member

A candidate for Upland City Council is more than the business owner he declares himself to be on the November ballot, according to records from Upland police. Rudy Zuñiga, 47, is a documented member of the Vagos outlaw motorcycle gang, police records show, leading the city’s top cop to question his fitness for elected office.

During a traffic stop seven years ago, Zuñiga told Upland police Officer Maurice Duran he was a member of the outlaw group, according to the field interview report filed by Duran that day. Since Zuñiga announced his candidacy for Upland City Council, he has made mention of his affiliation with motorcycle enthusiasts but has not publicly identified the group.

Hells Angels ambushed Pagans in Augusta County shooting

STAUNTON - During the early morning hours of Sept. 10 at the Hometown Inn near Greenville, five men — four of them reportedly members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang and the other a prospect — were lying in wait after two members of the rival Pagans Motorcycle Club were spotted across the street at the Pilot Travel Center.

Roughly 90 minutes later, as the two Pagans pulled into the motel parking lot on their motorcycles, an ambush was unleashed, based on video evidence shown Thursday in Augusta County Circuit Court.

One of the Pagans was shot, the other knocked off his motorcycle and beaten with a hammer.

Prior to the shooting, which took place shortly before 3 a.m., after the two Pagans were seen at the travel center, one of the motorcycle gang members rousted four others from their rooms at the motel.

Three full-patch Hells Angels plead guilty to drug trafficking charges

Stéphane Maheu, who had been sought since April, walked around the Montreal courthouse freely before being sentenced to six years in prison.

Three full-patch members of the Hells Angels, including one of the biker gang’s founding members in Canada, and a member of the Repentigny police pleaded guilty to various drug trafficking charges at the Montreal courthouse on Wednesday.

Twenty people in all appeared before Quebec Court Judge Daniel Bédard inside a fifth floor courtroom that was humming with activity throughout the day as almost every remaining case in Project Objection, a major investigation into three drug trafficking networks run by the Hells Angels, came to end only six months after arrests were made in April.

“I’m very impressed,” Bédard remarked at one point as several drug dealers pleaded guilty to charges that will result in them serving time inside federal penitentiaries.
