National president of Gypsy Joker Outlaw Motorcycle Club released pending trial in racketeering conspiracy case

A federal judge Thursday ordered the release of Kenneth Earl Hause, the 61-year-old national president of the Gypsy Jokers Outlaw Motorcycle Club, who is charged in an alleged racketeering conspiracy.

But U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones placed Hause on home detention with electric monitoring and said he must resign immediately from his role as leader of the motorcycle gang and not associate with any current or former Gypsy Joker members as he awaits trial.

Hause’s defense lawyer, Todd Bofferding, called his client a "man of honor'' and described him as an ailing grandfather who has the widespread support of his local community in Aumsville -- from the chief of police to waitresses in the small Marion County town of about 3,580 people.

Hause also can’t get the medical care he needs in jail for his congenital heart failure, Bofferding said. Though he has a past criminal record, it’s old and he hasn’t been convicted of a crime in 15 years, his lawyer said.

DA Seeks More Than $800K From Accused Drug Traffickers

Firefighters, former police officers and members of outlaw biker gangs were arrested Tuesday during a massive series of raids.

MIDDLETOWN, NY — In addition to arresting 26 people Tuesday accused in two connected drug trafficking operations, prosecutors want to seize their ill-gotten gains. The Orange County District Attorney's Office has instituted a civil proceeding against many defendants in the cocaine conspiracy seeking more than $833,000 in illegally obtained profits.

The DA plans to do the same against defendants in the pill conspiracy, one member of which was said to have made more than $70,000 during a six-month period.

"It is a sad day when law enforcement must execute narcotics related search warrants at firehouses and when paid firemen and former police officers are charged with high level narcotics felonies," said District Attorney David Hoovler in a statement.
