Dozens linked to motorcycle gangs arraigned | Richmond Times-Dispatch

Dozens linked to motorcycle gangs arraigned | Richmond Times-Dispatch: "More than two dozen current and former motorcycle gang members, including the national head of the Outlaws, were arraigned in federal court yesterday on racketeering and other charges.
All 25 pleaded not guilty in a one-hour hearing before U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson, who set a two-week trial to begin Oct. 20.
Twenty-three of the men were in custody and led into the courtroom in assorted jail uniforms, each in handcuffs attached to a waist chain and wearing ankle shackles. Some looked the image of tough, tattooed, long-haired bikers, while others were neatly groomed.
A 50-page, 12-count indictment this month accuses them of engaging in crimes including attempted murder, kidnapping, assault, robbery, extortion, witness intimidation, narcotics distribution, illegal gambling, weapons offenses and a civil-rights violation.
Two of the 27 originally indicted were not in court yesterday. Thomas 'Tomcat' Mayne, 59, of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, was shot to death June 15 when authorities tried to arrest him. Another, Michael 'Madman' Pedini, 39, is still being held by Maine authorities.
Most were Outlaws members, including Jack 'Milwaukee Jack' Rosga, 53, the gang's national president. A tall, heavyset man with graying hair and a beard, Rosga said his education ended in elementary school and that he has difficulty reading."
