Orville Cochran Surrenders

Orville J. “Southside Orvie” Cochran, the former president of the Chicago Southside Chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, came to terms with the Department of Justice this week and pled guilty to a single charge of racketeering conspiracy.

Cochran was a survivor of a string of unfortunate events that occurred between members of the Outlaws and members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club long ago. Unfriendly encounters between between members of the two clubs in the upper Midwest began late in 1993 and eventually got out of hand.

Cochran was indicted for racketeering in 2001. He was alleged to have participated in several violent incidents after an investigation made by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that relied heavily on an informant named Mark “Crash” Quinn.

Cochran apparently retreated to a Buddhist monastery in Nepal for 16 years after his indictment.

He was arrested in April 2017 after allegedly trying to pilfer a back brace from a store in Evergreen Park, Illinois. After he was fingerprinted, police discovered that he was a wanted man.

He had been scheduled for trial on September 10.

Cochran is 68-years-old. He spent the first 67 years free. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.
