Ventura County

Hells Angel Gets Jail in Drug Case

January 04, 2003|Holly Wolcott | Times Staff Writer

Hells Angels member William "Gunner" Wolf, one of 28 people charged in a sweeping indictment against the motorcycle club, was sentenced Friday to a year in jail for his role in narcotics sales.

Wolf, 32, pleaded guilty to five felonies, including selling the prescription drug Vicodin, possessing the club drug Ecstasy for sale and insurance fraud. In exchange for his plea, several dozen additional drug charges were dropped, attorneys said.

"He's glad it's over and now he can get on with his life," said Wolf's lawyer, Jim Farley.

Wolf remains free on $1 million bail and will report for a work furlough program Jan. 17. He was also ordered to pay $22,548 in restitution to an insurance company he defrauded in a faked traffic accident.

Wolf was the last defendant to be sentenced in the drug case, which was the longest and one of the most expensive in Ventura County history.

Last March, local Hells Angels leader George Christie Jr., his ex-wife and 25-year-old son all entered guilty or no contest pleas to various charges after most of the counts against them were dismissed. They were placed on probation and given credit for jail time served.

The drug case took more than five years to investigate and prosecute. Sentences ranged from probation to several years in state prison, officials said.
