A Hells Angels Motorcycle Club member from Larchmont, New York pleaded guilty to a felony in Carlton, Minnesota last week as part of a plea agreement.
Jeffrey Paul Amato, 43, had been arrested in Carlton last summer. Last Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to felony fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance and had charges of receiving stolen property, refusing to submit to a chemical test and driving under the influence dismissed in court.
Under the agreement, Mr. Amato is to receive a two-year suspended sentence, court documents showed.
However, Mr. Amato may not qualify for the suspended sentence – he has numerous felony convictions in New York. If he does not qualify, he will have to return to Carlton for an amended sentence.
Although hundreds of citations were given, Mr. Amato was the only member of the motorcycle club arrested during the club’s five-day annual gathering, which took place in Carlton last July.
The group reportedly plans to visit Gunnison, Colorado this summer for their 2010 annual run before heading to Sturgis, South Dakota, in August.
