2 Outlaw Bikers Sentenced
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two more members of a nationwide outlaw motorcycle gang have been sentenced to prison.
A federal judge in St. Louis on Tuesday sentenced 33-year-old Carlyle “Thundercat” Fleming of Chicago to 11 years in prison, and 42-year-old Lawrence “Pac” Pinkston to more than five years. Both pleaded guilty earlier this year. Fleming got the longer sentence because of his involvement in a shooting and the near-scalping of another man.
Both men were part of the Wheels of Soul gang. Overall, 18 members of the gang have been charged from an investigation that began in 2009 after an armed robbery and killing in St. Louis.
Gang members are accused of crimes ranging from drug dealing to kidnapping and murder.
