Biker Sentenced For Savage Hells Angels Beating

An associate of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club was sentenced to 30 months in prison Thursday for setting up a gang beating that an extortion victim somehow survived after being stabbed, stomped, blinded in one eye and beaten so severely with a hammer that most bones in his face were shattered.

Federal prosecutors said Howard Hammer, 45, of New Milford, drove a group of outlaw bikers to a motel in New Milford where the bikers nearly killed the unidentified victim in January 2016. Hammer pleaded guilty to extortion, admitting that he threatened the victim over an unpaid $1,500 loan and set up the assault. But he was not accused of direct involvement in the beating and has refused to identify those who were directly involved.

Allen sentenced to one year for cocaine-trafficking conviction

A Saskatoon Hells Angels member arrested in the Project Forseti raids and convicted of trafficking cocaine is heading to jail for a year.

Rob Allen was handed the one-year sentence Tuesday afternoon at Saskatoon’s Court of Queen’s Bench.

The 36-year-old was one of 14 people arrested in 2015 as part of an investigation into organized crime that saw police raid nearly 20 properties across Saskatchewan and Alberta. He was convicted in February.

His punishment is less than what Justice Grant Currie, who issued the sentence, says is typical of cocaine-trafficking convictions. The typical sentence is 18 months to four years.

Quebec Court of Appeal reduces sentences of several Hells Angels

Thirty-five Hells Angels have seen the sentences they received significantly reduced in one fell swoop, after having pled guilty to participating in a plot to murder their enemies. 

The sentences were reduced in a decision released on Wednesday by the Quebec Court of Appeal. The decision is yet another considerable blow to the legitimacy of how Quebec’s provincial prosecution bureau (Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales) handled Operation SharQc, a lengthy investigation into the biker gang that initially appeared to have crippled the Hells Angels in the province in 2009.
