4 plead guilty in Hells Angels case in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Four alleged Hells Angels pleaded have guilty to a felony charge stemming from a 2008 brawl with rival Mongols motorcycle gang members that injured six people at a downtown Las Vegas wedding chapel.

The pleas Friday by Dominic Orlando, Frederick O’Dell, Brandon Young and John Dawson brought to five the number of men who’ve taken plea deals to avoid a retrial on multiple charges, including attempted murder, conspiracy and taking part in activities of a criminal gang.

One defendant, James Sexey, balked at pleading guilty to two felonies.

His lawyer says Sexey expects to stand trial beginning Aug. 5 with another alleged Hells Angels member, John Merchant.

Merchant and Sexey are accused of stabbing two Mongols during the fight at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.
