Laurie Staley-Stone, a detective on the Town of Hamburg Police Department in upstate New York, has been convicted of accessing police databases for non-law enforcement purposes in order to provide confidential information to the president of the Chosen Few motorcycle club about members of the rival Kingsmen as reported by Michael Beebe for The Buffalo News:
Assistant U. S. Attorney Anthony M. Bruce told a federal magistrate judge that FBI agents found license plate information for the father of a Kingsmen motorcycle gang member when they raided the home of Alex Koschtschuk, president of the rival Chosen Few. Koschtschuk, 58, is one of 20 Chosen Few members and associates charged with racketeering for engaging in a blood feud with the Kingsmen and another local gang, the Lonely Ones. Staley-Stone has resigned from the Hamburg force and turned in her weapons, but she will be allowed to collect her pension in the misdemeanor plea deal obtained by her attorney, Joel L. Daniels. The detective, under nonmandatory sentencing guidelines, could be sentenced up to six months in jail, fined as much as $10,000 and given a year’s supervised release for the guilty plea. She will be sentenced Nov. 22.
