ST. LOUIS (AP) — The last two of 24 members of an outlaw biker gang indicted on charges ranging from racketeering to robbery to murder have been sentenced.
Anthony “Blade” Robinson of Chicago was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to life in prison without parole. He was convicted of murder last year. Meanwhile, Jerry “Angel” Peteet of Gary, Ind., was sentenced to 23 years in prison for racketeering. He is a former lawyer for the club.
The 2011 indictment named members of the Wheels of Soul gang. Prosecutors say the violent gang members were involved in drive-by shootings, armed robberies, drug dealing. The gang was headquartered in Philadelphia but had 400 members in 25 states.
Most of the men charged in the indictment pleaded guilty.
