Former St Louis police officer pleads guilty to federal racketeering www.privateofficer.com
St Louis MO Feb 5 2012 A former St. Louis-area police officer and part-time St. Louis City Hall security officer has pleaded guilty to federal racketeering conspiracy charges.
Norman “Justice” Vick was among 21 people from around the country indicted in June for an alleged role in a violent biker gang called the “Wheels of Soul.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/zuEYiL) reports that Vick pleaded guilty Wednesday.
Vick admitted destroying the “colors,” or biker group membership patch, that had been stolen from rivals in 2009. Prosecutors say the colors were taken at gunpoint from the STL Riders club.
Sentencing is May 1. Three of Vick’s co-defendants have already pleaded guilty.
Vick was a Berkeley police officer from 1993 to 2008.
