Richmond, Virginia – On Tuesday, a federal jury found Outlaws president Jack Rosga, 53, aka, “Milwaukee Jack” of Milwaukee Wisconsin guilty. Rosga was convicted of two federal charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering and commit violence in aid of racketeering. Rosga is facing up to 23 years in prison, but federal sentencing guidelines allows for a lesser sentence. The jury took two weeks to decide a guilty verdict.
In November, a jury went into deadlock and couldn’t reach a gulty verdict against Rosga. He along with 26 members and affiliates of the Outlaws were indicted in June and most have entered guilty pleas. Most of the charges stem from conspiring to commit acts of violence and crimes against rival motorcycle club the Hells Angels and their affiliates.
Jeffrey Grabman, an undercover agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives testified in the second federal racketeering trial of the Outlaws. Grabman alleged Rosga had ordered members of the Outlaws to seek out members of the Hells Angels and their affiliates the Deperados in order to pick fights with them and to keep the rival groups from taking over the presumed Outlaws territory.
Grabman had infiltrated the motorcycle club and even setup a Petersburg Outlaws chapter with other undercover federal agents.
Also convicted on Tuesday were, Mark Jason Fiel and Christojher Timbers from the Manassas chapter of the Outlaws in Virginia, including Harry McCall of the Lexington chapter of the Outlaws in North Carolina. Timbers who was facing multiple charges was found guilty on two charges and McCall was found guilty on three charges.
Rosga, Fiel, Timbers and McCall will be sentenced on April 8, 2011.
In June, the indictment charged members of the Outlaws for participating in a criminal enterprise that engaged in at least 80 crimes, including attempted murder kidnapping assault, robbery, extortion, witness intimidation, narcotics distribution, illegal gambling and weapons violations.
