LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Hells Angels member has been sentenced to two to 10 years in Nevada state prison in a brawl with rival Mongols motorcycle gang members at a downtown Las Vegas wedding chapel.
Jeffrey Murray was one of 13 men indicted in the December 2008 melee that injured six people, including two who were stabbed.
He pleaded guilty in July to felony coercion and battery charges, and his sentencing Thursday made him the first of 10 men who took plea deals to learn their fate.
Murray's lawyer, Frank Cremen, says the 51-year-old union convention center laborer accepted that he was going to prison.
Security video shows that fighting erupted and when a Hells Angels wedding party encountered Mongols members arriving for another ceremony at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.
