US jury in Las Vegas mulling accused Vagos racketeering case
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jurors in Las Vegas began deliberating whether federal prosecutors proved after five months of contentious testimony that eight accused Vagos biker gang members conspired in a broad criminal racketeering enterprise to commit violent crimes.
Those crimes included the killing of a rival Hells Angels leader at a northern Nevada casino in 2011.
A federal prosecutor urged the jury on Wednesday to remember wiretaps and recordings by an undercover agent who spent 22 months posing as a Vagos member.
The prosecutor downplayed testimony by a former Vagos member who admitted that he lied on the witness stand. Deliberations are due to resume Thursday.
