Biker gang trial in Va. goes to jury
The federal racketeering case against the national president of the Outlaws motorcycle gang and three of his associates is going to a jury in Virginia.
Closing arguments are set for Thursday in U.S. District Court in Richmond.
Jack Rosga of Milwaukee, Wis., is accused of leading an organization that engaged in a variety of violent crimes, mostly aimed at gaining an advantage over the rival Hell's Angels motorcycle gang.
A jury heard testimony from several current or former Outlaws, including a federal agent who infiltrated the gang and several members who have pleaded guilty.
The other defendants are William Davey of the Asheville, N.C., chapter; Mark Spradling of Hickory, N.C., treasurer of the region that encompasses Virginia and the Carolinas; and Leslie Werth of the Rock Hill, S.C., chapter.
