The federal racketeering case against five suspected members and associates of the Outlaws and Nomads began in Richmond, VA now is in the hands of the jury as reported by Frank Green for the Richmond-Times Dispatch: "More than two dozen persons . . . were indicted earlier this year that charged them with trying to expand the gang into Virginia a state said to be under the control of their bitter rivals, the Hells Angels." Among the defendants is Jack Rosga, the reputed national president of the Outlaws, who is being retried after a jury deadlocked on charges against him last month. Seventeen of those indicted pleaded guilty.
