(video)--ROCKFORD - Two Hells Angels were found Not Guilty of charges related to a fight in 2013, at the Rockford Hells Angels clubhouse. The fight sent one man to the hospital. Jurors took just a little over an hour to reach their verdict. 

Thomasz Lech and Jose Vielma Junior were found Not Guilty of Armed Robbery and Aggravated Battery charges. The 2013 beating and robbery left the victim with stab wounds. The duo's defense attorney argued successfully that the prosecutions case was largely circumstantial and eyewitness testimony implicating the two men was unreliable.

"My clients indicated that they were innocent throughout and there was no charges that could have been supported by the state that would show that they, in any way, did anything wrong, other than being a Hells Angels Motorcycle Club member, which is still legal in the state of Illinois," said Defense Attorney Patrick Campenelli
