3 years for Alexandria man in biker gang extortion case

A Virginia businessman will spend more than three years in prison for an extortion conviction involving the Pagan's Motorcycle Club.

John N. Maggio of Alexandria pleaded guilty in November in a West Virginia federal court. The 47-year-old electrical contractor admitted asking a Pagan's officer for help extorting nearly $30,000 from two business associates.

Maggio was later recorded telling a Pagan's member to threaten the associates and that he didn't care how badly they might be hurt.

He is one of more than 15 defendants who have pleaded guilty in a sweeping federal racketeering case targeting Pagan's leaders and associates from West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and several other states.
