09:59 |

Leroy Frasier, who oversaw the Michigan and Indiana Outlaws, will be sentenced Oct. 27 by U.S. District Judge Julian Cook.The original indictment alleged that the Outlaws Motorcycle Club is an enterprise whose members allegedly committed, attempted to, and threatened to commit acts of violence to protect and expand the gang’s criminal operations. Several of the defendants were charged with allegedly assaulting various members of the rival Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, in some cases with dangerous weapons including a hammer, motorcycle parts and a cane. Several defendants allegedly dealt narcotics, including methamphetamine, marijuana, hashish and cocaine, while others were charged with various firearms offenses.The gang as chapters in Indiana, Detroit, the Downriver area and Bay City, officials said. The 13 other defendants began pleading guilty last year. "The guilty pleas by a large number of leaders and members of this illegal motorcycle gang are a good example of the success that comes from effective federal, state and local law enforcement cooperation,” said U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg. “This case has managed to put a damper on the heightened dangers of violence and other criminal acts posed by organized gangs such as the Outlaws." The guilty pleas included leaders, members and gang associates of Outlaws’ chapters in Fort Wayne, Ind., Indianapolis, and areas of Detroit including Eastside, Detroit Westside, Downriver and Bay City.
The defendants were charged with various crimes including violent crimes in aid of racketeering; conspiracy to commit violent crimes in aid of racketeering; distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and hashish; possessing a firearm after conviction for a felony; and sale of a firearm to a known felon. 14 Indiana and Michigan-based members and associates of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club have pleaded guilty to federal assault, drug and other charges.U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg and other law-enforcement officials announced Thursday the pleas were entered in federal court in Detroit as far back as August 2008.The government says leaders, members and associates of Outlaws chapters in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Ind., Bay City, Mich., and the Detroit area pleaded guilty to crimes including assault with a dangerous weapon, cocaine and marijuana distribution and possession of hashish.Prosecutors describe the Outlaws as an international criminal organization.
