ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A former suburban St. Louis police officer has been sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison for his involvement in an outlaw biker gang.
Norman "Justice" Vick pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge in February and was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Vick is a former Berkeley police officer and also worked as a part-time security officer at St. Louis City Hall.
Nearly two dozen people from around the country were indicted last year for allegedly being part of the Wheels of Soul motorcycle gang. Authorities say the gang distributed crack cocaine and heroin and committed robberies to raise money. They also blame the gang in at least three murder cases.
At least 11 of the defendants have pleaded guilty
