Alleged leader of local 'outlaw motorcycle club' arrested on plethora of charges by Tri-County Gang Unit

A 49-year-old Carson City man was arrested by the Tri-County Gang Unit on five felony charges, one gross misdemeanor charge, and three misdemeanor charges after he allegedly committed felony domestic battery.

According to the report, David Sanchez is the president of the Deadly Sins Motorcycle Club Carson City Nevada chapter and he is associated with the Vagos Motorcycle Club and was arrested in the 900 block of Woodside Drive early Friday morning.

The Deadly Sins MC is a support motorcycle club for the Vagos MC, which is an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang that commonly engages in felonious activities, the report states.

Vagos MC support clubs “commonly engage in buying and selling drugs and firearms and they provide a portion of the revenue from these sales to the Vagos MC.”

Late Thursday evening, upon arrival, deputies made contact with Sanchez and his child. Deputies took Sanchez into custody for felony domestic battery.

Hell’s Angels motorcyclists different part of Angels Camp’s history

Sixty-two years ago, Angels Camp became a part of history not associated with the region’s famous Gold Rush.

In 1957, the outlaw motorcycle gang Hell’s Angels descended on the City of Angels to create their unique brand of mayhem.

Not all those who served in World War II were excited about returning to civilian life. Some young men who fought in the conflict returned home still searching for the excitement of the war years.

Many found it atop a motorcycle. Surplus motorcycles from the war effort were inexpensive and readily available. Bikers began to form clubs across the country, re-establishing the camaraderie they had experienced overseas back home.

While there were less than 200,000 motorcycles in the United States at the end of the war, by the mid-1950s, they numbered over 1 million.

Feds won’t pursue death penalty in Gypsy Joker Outlaw Motorcycle kidnapping, murder conspiracy cases

The U.S. attorney general has directed federal prosecutors in Oregon not to seek the death penalty in the kidnapping, torture-style murder and racketeering conspiracy cases pending against accused members of the Gypsy Joker Outlaw Motorcycle Club.

The decision was forwarded July 1 to the Oregon judge handling the case -- that’s about 3 ½ weeks before Attorney General William P. Barr announced Thursday that the federal government would resume death penalty executions after a 16-year hiatus.

No offenders prosecuted in Oregon currently are on federal death row.

In the motorcycle club prosecution, the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., reviewed the case and made a recommendation.

Steven Mygrant, a federal prosecutor in Oregon, then informed U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones.

Santa Fe Springs Gang Member Pleads Guilty to RICO Charges

A member of a street gang that operates in Santa Fe Springs and Whittier pleaded guilty Friday to federal criminal charges, including counts stemming from the August 2013 stabbing of a rival in Quiet Canyon in Montebello.

Ronald Sotello, 43, of Whittier pleaded guilty to three felonies before Chief U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, who scheduled an Oct. 7 sentencing hearing. The plea agreement filed in Los Angeles federal court specifies that Sotello will serve no more than 11 years in federal prison, although the penalty is ultimately up to the judge.

Sotello — a member of a Mexican Mafia-affiliated gang — stabbed a Mongols Motorcycle Club member, identified in court papers only as R.C., in order to “increase his position in the gang,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Purported R.I. biker-gang leader released after judge tosses wiretap evidence

PROVIDENCE — The Burrillville man depicted by authorities as the leader of a violent motorcycle gang and Woonsocket drug enterprise is out on home confinement after a judge this week threw out the wiretap investigators used on his phones.

Superior Court Judge Netti C. Vogel on Wednesday suppressed the wiretap of Deric McGuire’s phones from July 7, 2017, on after concluding that under state law only the Superior Court’s presiding justice or the next senior Superior Court judge can authorize such interceptions, according to John M. Cicilline, a lawyer involved in the case.

“They lose the wire. It’s far from over, but it’s significant,” said Cicilline, whose father, John F. Cicilline, argued the motion to suppress.

McGuire, who had been held without bail, was released on home confinement the same day.

Kristy dosReis, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Peter F. Neronha’s office, declined comment, other than to say the state planned to appeal.

Judge’s ruling could toss out key evidence in biker gang case

(pics) --- PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – In what could be a major blow to a criminal case that targeted two motorcycle gangs, a judge ruled a mass of wiretapped phone conversations should be tossed from trial, the Target 12 Investigators have learned.

The decision came after defense attorneys successfully argued the wrong judge signed off on an extension of the order to authorize wiretaps in the case.

On Wednesday, Superior Court Judge Netti Vogel ruled in favor of the defense, saying the wiretap extension was improperly signed off on and the evidence at the center of the case for many of the defendants could not be used at trial.
