Four Pleas In Virginia Shooting

Three Hells Angels and one club prospect have agreed to plea and sentencing agreements after a shooting in Augusta County, Virginia last September.

The prospect, Anthony Milan of East Elmhurst, New York pled guilty to malicious wounding by a mob and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He will be sentenced to eight years in prison. Nathaniel A. Villaman of East Brunswick, New Jersey; Joseph Anthony Paturzo of the Bronx, New York and Richard E. West of Baldwin, New York agreed to plead guilty to malicious wounding by a mob. They agreed to be sentenced to four years.

The cases of three other defendants remain unresolved. Dominick J. Eadicicco of Staten Island remains charged with malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. His trial is scheduled to begin March 18.

Andy Thongthawath of Queens and Buster Domingo of South Ozone Park, New York remain charged with possession of a schedule I or II drug and possession of a firearm while in possession of a schedule I or II drug.

According to Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tim Martin, the seven defendants, who were all from the New York City metropolitan area, attacked two members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club after a room clerk at a Homestead Inn in Greenville, Virginia assigned the Pagans a room adjoining the Hells Angels’.

One Pagan was shot in the lower back. The other was beaten. The beaten Pagan was treated and released. The Pagan who was shot spent about a week in a local hospital.

Neither Pagan cooperated with police. Most of the case against the four men is based on surveillance video.

“In this case, there was a complicating factor and that complicating factor was that our victim was not going to cooperate,” Martin said. “And putting on a trial in which we have no victim when there’s a shooting is an extremely difficult thing, so the fact that we had them plead, the fact that they got those substantial sentences, I felt was a win given the hurdles that we had here.”

The incident was also investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI also investigated the case, and Martin says he worked with the U.S. Attorney’s office. As part of the plea deal, the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Western District of Virginia agreed not to federalize the cases against Milan, Villaman, Paturzo and West.

    Wonder if the feds will come back and try them again in federal court. I’m not clear on the circumstances but they have done that in the past.
