Al Potter, guilty of 1st-degree murder, will be 81 before he's eligible for parole

Jury took 2.5 days of deliberations to return guilty verdict in Dale Porter slaying

Al Potter has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Dale Porter.

A collective gasp and outburst of tears were heard from the first row of the courtroom gallery Friday, as a 12-person jury returned with its verdict.

"Mr. Potter, I sentence you to life imprisonment without chance of parole for 25 years," Supreme Court Justice Garrett Handrigan told Potter, following the verdict.

Potter was arrested in September 2016 for the vicious stabbing death two years earlier of Porter, a father of two and fisherman from North River, Conception Bay North.

Family sees justice

The slaying, which happened at the bottom of Porter's driveway, remained unsolved for more than two years until the RCMP conducted an undercover operation aimed at Potter.

Parts of Hells Angels report ruled inadmissible at civil forfeiture trial

A B.C. judge has criticized a retired police expert on the Hells Angels as biased

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has criticized an “expert” report about the Hells Angels filed by the Director of Civil Forfeiture as full of biased, unsubstantiated claims about the biker club.

Justice Barry Davies ruled that several parts of the report are inadmissible in the director’s long-running civil case against the Hells Angels.

Davies was also critical of the report’s author, retired Ontario Provincial Police Det. Staff Sgt. Len Isnor, who Davies said relied on his “long held” conclusion that the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club is a criminal organization.

Isnor testified in December at a voir dire (a trial within a trial) to determine the admissibility of his report.

Al Potter talks about family's private island, Hells Angels chapter to undercover cop

RCMP officer posing as debt collector had conversation during car ride to Belmont, Ont.

Al Potter had plans to open his own motorcycle club in central Newfoundland, with six solid members who were serious about following the rules and paying their dues — something he said some members of the Vikings often failed to do. 

That and details about Potter's family's private island were revealed in a conversation Potter had with an undercover police officer while they drove from Minden to Belmont, Ont., on Sept. 25, 2016.

Little did Potter know, he was one day away from being arrested for the 2014 stabbing death of Dale Porter, and he was getting comfortable in the passenger's seat as the two men drove to do a "small job."

Former notorious Hells Angel spent months in jail for road-rage incident

Jacques Pelletier took part in the slaughter of fellow gang members in 1985

A former Hells Angel who took part in one of the most notorious crimes committed in Quebec when he and other bikers slaughtered fellow gang members three decades ago is a free man again, despite having recently pleaded guilty to assaulting someone during a road-rage incident in Montreal.

Jacques Pelletier, 63, was a full-patch member of the Hells Angels in 1985 when the gang decided to slaughter several members of its now-defunct Laval chapter. The gang members who were killed in what became known as the Lennoxville Purge were considered unruly drug dealers whose actions affected relations with other organized crime groups, notably the leaders of Montreal’s West End Gang who supplied the gang with cocaine.
