Biker gang chief sentenced in Va. to 20 years


RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A federal judge in Virginia has sentenced the national president of the Outlaws motorcycle gang to 20 years in prison.

Jack Rosga of Milwaukee was sentenced Friday for racketeering and conspiracy to commit violence in aid of racketeering. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson said he was holding Rosga accountable for the Outlaws' "culture of violence."

Rosga's attorney says she'll appeal the convictions and the sentence. Prosecutors had sought a 23-year term.

Rosga was one of 27 current or former Outlaws indicted last June for participating in what prosecutors called a violent criminal enterprise. More than half entered guilty pleas.
