Ciccone, Kozlowski To Testify At Ablett Trial

December 27, 2011

All Posts, Features, News

The outlines of the prosecution and the defense in the trial of Mongol Christopher Bryan “Stoney” Ablett are beginning to appear out of the legal fog.

Ablett is accused of murdering Hells Angel San Francisco charter President Mark “Papa” Guardado on September 2, 2008 on behalf of the “Mongols gang.” The trial is scheduled to begin January 23 in the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco before U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg.

In documents filed in the last month William Frentzen and Kathryn Haun, the Assistant U.S. Attorneys who will prosecute the case against Ablett, have indicated at least some of the witnesses and some of the evidence they intend to introduce at trial. Ablett faces life in prison if he is convicted.

Co-Conspirator Statements

Among the evidence the prosecution still refuses to disclose are “the statements of alleged co-conspirators to the purported RICO enterprise identified as the Mongols Motorcycle Club. These statements are attributed to a number of Mongols, many of whom were later arrested and charged with being a member of a RICO conspiracy… members of the Mongols listed as declarants” include Ruben “Doc” Cavazos.”

The prosecution has given no indication that it will actually call on Cavazos to testify. Cavazos was sentenced to 14 years in prison by Judge Otis Wright in a secret hearing in September. ATF Special Agent John Ciccone and ATF Tactical Field Officer and Montebello Police Sergeant Chris Cervantes openly laughed at Cavazos during that sentencing.

Most of the declarations that will be entered into evidence that the Mongols Motorcycle Club is a criminal racket were made “in the course of executing plea agreements, cooperation agreements and the entry of pleas.” Some of those plea and cooperation agreements remain under seal and have not been available to Ablett’s attorneys, Richard B. Mazer and Michael N. Burt.

Murder Weapon

The prosecution also continues to withhold information about the weapon Ablett allegedly used to murder Guardado. Guardado’s autopsy report indicates that he died as a result of “multiple gunshot wounds.”

Ablett and Guardado allegedly fought outside a bar called Dirty Thieves at the corner of 24th Street and Treat Avenue in San Francisco. Witness statements about the murder are often contradictory. One witness said Guardado’s last words were “He keeps stabbing me!” Guardado was stabbed as well as shot.

The prosecution still refuses to disclose “the type of weapon Ablett used to commit his deadly assault.”

Laughlin

In a memorandum filed with the court on December 23, the prosecution articulated its intention to make the brawl between members of the Mongols and Hells Angels Motorcycle Clubs in Harrah’s in Laughlin, Nevada in April 2002 an issue in the Ablett case. The memo states:

“The incident at Laughlin is directly relevant because it provides context for the defendant’s motivation to commit murder in this case, i.e. that the victim was a Hells Angels member. The Laughlin incident is the single most important reason for the dangerous rivalry that exists between the two enterprises to this day. It provides background and context for the animosity that existed between the Mongols (the enterprise charged in the instant Indictment) and the Hells Angels.”

“…the defendant argues, the government’s position that Laughlin is a racketeering act wherein members of the Mongols conspired to murder and murdered members of the Hells Angels is somehow inconsistent with its earlier prosecution of Hells Angels members. What the defendant fails to appreciate is that the two positions are not mutually exclusive: Just as members of the Mongols conspired to commit various acts to include murder and attempted murder at Laughlin so too did members of the Hells Angels conspire to commit murder and attempted murder at Laughlin. Both groups had members who were armed and ready to fight at the Harrah’s casino. Nothing about the government’s earlier prosecution of the Hells Angels diminishes the fact that it also involved the Mongols. In fact, two Hells Angels members were murdered and one Mongols member was murdered at Laughlin. The violent melee went both directions, and the government should not be precluded from presenting Laughlin as a racketeering act simply because it previously prosecuted members of the Hells Angels for the events arising out of Laughlin.”

“What the government is seeking to prove with Laughlin that is entirely relevant to not one but two elements the government must prove is simply that: (1) there is a history of animosity between the two groups; (2) that history includes a violent melee that occurred at Laughlin that involved violence on the part of both groups; and (3) the event at Laughlin transformed what had previously been a dangerous rivalry into a full scale “war” between the two groups for which there had been no truce by September 2, 2008 when the defendant killed Mark Guardado. The government does not intend to prove up the Laughlin incident in a matter that suggests one party. Namely, the government must prove (1) that an enterprise existed and (2) that it engaged in racketeering activity. Laughlin is directly relevant to demonstrating both that the Mongols was an enterprise and that the enterprise was engaged in racketeering activity.”

“The government intends to prove this particular racketeering act through the testimony of two witnesses, a few minutes of video surveillance that show both the Hells Angels and Mongols engaged in a fight, and several photos….”

Defense Fund

The government will also attempt to convince a jury that the Mongols is a racket because the club helps members with legal expenses in criminal cases. The prosecution characterizes this legal fund raising as one tactic used by an “unlawful motorcycle gang.”

The prosecution intends to tell the jury that “…members of the Mongols, at one point, discussed collecting funds for the defense of defendant Ablett and that they were considering covering defendant Ablett’s defense.”

On June 4, 2009 ATF Special Agent John Ciccone told the grand jury that indicted Ablett for racketeering: “If a Mongol is arrested and a crime that he committed was in furtherance of the gang; so, for example, he gets into a fight with a rival gang member or a Hells Angel, he was doing that because that’s the protocol of the gang and it was in furtherance of the gang. Then the Mongols would take up a collection through what they term a ‘defense fund.’ They would charge each member of each chapter a specific amount of money that would go to that individual’s defense fund to pay off lawyer fees, court costs, or whatever because the criminal act that he committed was in furtherance of the gang.”

Ablett’s legal expenses have never actually been reimbursed by the Mongols Motorcycle Club, the prosecution explains, because “they could not cover the expenses of defense counsel for all Mongols members after the Black Rain case was taken down and about 100 or more of them were all facing criminal charges at the same time, perhaps they wrote defendant Ablett off because he was facing a possible federal death penalty case….”

Kozlowski

One of the ATF Agents who patched into the Mongols in order to entrap and subvert them, Special Agent Darrin Kozlowski, will testify at Ablett’s trial. Kozlowski will testify that he overheard Mongols discuss helping Ablett with his legal expenses.

Kozlowski will also testify that he saw three Modesto chapter Mongols including Ablett smoking marijuana at a party on June 22 2008. Kozlowski will also testify that at that party he arranged to buy heroin from Jorge “Solo” Viramontes for $1,500 an ounce. According to the pertinent Report of Investigation, ROI 605, Kozlowski did not record the conversation “due to the spontaneity of Viramontes approaching SA Kozlowski at the party” at which Ablett was preesent.

Kozlowski will testify that at the same party a “strict ‘Code 55’ was (put) in effect. That notice prohibited any Mongols members from wearing Mongols insignia due to an altercation with a rival gang…. Ablett’s presence with other Mongols at a time when a Code 55 is put out is of obvious relevance to this case – as SA Kozlowski can testify that, as a Mongols chapter Sergeant at Arms, his responsibility immediately on receiving a Code 55 was to notify all other members of his chapter. Therefore, the Sergeant at Arms of the Modesto chapter of the Mongols was responsible to notify all members of that chapter immediately on receiving the national Code 55.”

Kozlowski will also testify about purchases of cocaine and methamphetamine he made while investigating the Mongols.

Kozlowski may also testify to his official account of the aftermath of the murder of a Mongol Named Manuel “Hitman” Martin as stated in ROI 800 which was written, signed and dated about a month after the murder. In that report, Kozlowski states that he was told by a Mongol named Shawn “Monster” Buss that “the shooter who killed Martin” was a “Toonerville gang member.” According to Kozlowski, he learned that the motive for the murder may have been that “a member of 311 Bikerz checked a couple of unknown male individuals.”

Ciccone

The government’s most authoritative witness when it presents its case against Ablett will be ATF “gang expert” John Ciccone. Ciccone is expected to testify about the “Laughlin Riot” and the criminal nature of both the Mongols and the Hells Angels. Ciccone is the author of much of the language in Ablett’s indictment.

Before the grand jury that indicted Ablett, Ciccone testified to the criminal nature of the possible establishment of a legal defense fund for the accused man.

In that testimony a prosecutor asked Ciccone, “What happens if the a criminal act the individual was involved in was not in furtherance of the gang? Does that individual get a defense fund?”

And Ciccone replied, “ No. He would basically be on his own.”

Later in the same testimony, Ciccone was asked, “When you testified previously about defense funds being set up and you talked about defense funds in general with the Mongols organization, was such a defense fund set up for Christopher Ablett?”

Ciccone, “Yes.”

“How do you know that?”

“Once he once he self-surrendered after being on the run for a few months, the topic was brought up at a members meeting that they were going to start providing a certain amount of defense funds for Chris Ablett’s defense.”

“And was it a members meeting … Where was this members meeting? Do you recall?”

“I don’t remember the exact location. It was a meeting in Los Angeles.”

“And was it a members meeting of a specific chapter or an ‘all members’ type meeting?”

 

“I think it was a sergeant at arms/presidents meeting, if I can recall correctly, which would mean just those two people that held those positions in their respective chapters would be in attendance….”

“One thing you discussed was the discussion among he Mongols about setting up a legal defense fund for Ablett. Do you know whether such a legal defense fund was actually established on his behalf?”

“That was all. Our case was still going on, and that was all being directed by the former national hierarchy that are now all in custody based off of our investigation, and I have not … Granted we don’t have our undercovers in play anymore, that kind of thing, I have not heard any information recently since our takedown that they’re still continuing to make payments towards his defense.”

    Glenn S,

    The complacency of the citizenry with ongoing perpetual legislation that has eroded our Constitutional, Civil and even Basic Human Rights scares the shit out of me. I am extremely fortunate in my capacity as a defense lawyer to place temporary band aids on the cancer that eats away at our Constitution on a daily basis. My work allows me to legally throw wrenches in the “criminal justice” machine in hopes of keeping some poor soul out of State Prison or County Jail.

    But mine is a losing battle my friend. Big brother holds the aces. The blue gang has the upper hand.

    Shyster,

    This is wrong on so many levels. Like I said I am more then willing to fight to keep our country free. Our what about our veterans who have fought for our country. Now just because they belong to a club. Our hero’s can suddenly be labeled as terrorists.

    Glenn S.

    I know how you feel. Almost no one has heard of this new law. You would think it would be a major news story. The sheeple have been brainwashed very well. Observer is right the longer we think it could be worst. The sooner it will become much worst.

  4. Austin Says:

    @Glenn S. Very well said.
    Insulation from reality can be via TV, fast food, or headphones. So when the train comes- if you don’t hear it, can’t jump out of the way or don’t believe it’s real… the end result is the same.

  5. Glenn S. Says:

    Shyster, what I cannot wrap my mind around is the fact that nobody seems to give a shit. Not only do nobody give a shit, but the only media outlet that has reported on it is Atlantic magazine (that I’ve been able to find). When I mention it to friends, associates, and acquaintences who are not in the life, they think its some sort of urban legend or conspiracy theory. And they’re more interested in who won the ball game or the race. The only people who seem to give a shit about these latest power grabs by the US government are people like me: ex-convicts, ex-junkies, non-RUB bikers. And people who have earned those back patches you spoke of.

    I think of those government agents that might one day come after me kinda like I thought of those groups of urban youths in prison. One time, such a group confronted me, wanting to take my money. “You can’t take us all”, the head homeboy told me. “I don’t have to,” I told him. “I only have to take the first one of you motherfuckers that comes at me, and I’ll make it real bloody.” I cannot describe the sense of well-being and peace of mind that came over me, having made that decision. I was damn near disappointed when they folded.

    It occurs to me that most people cannot properly appreciate life, having never faced death. And most people cannot properly appreciate freedom, having never lost it, or never having faced losing it. Maybe that’s why npbody seems to give a shit that we’re living in a police state.

  6. Shyster Says:

    Glenn S and Irish Dragon,

    And to add insult to injury … If one decides to ride across the border into Mexico and back with a back patch designated by any one of the alphabet agencies as belonging to an OMG, Ask the DHS personnel at the border to peek at the computer screen to see if you have been labeled a “domestic street terrorist.”

    Because now with the new NDAA law signed by Obama, that could fuck up one’s plans for like …. Life.

    But I don’t we should look at it that way, because if we decide things now are ‘relatively ok’, compared to this s#*t, we will surely end up someday at the bottom of the same pit as these poor souls.

  8. IrishDragon Says:

    At this rate, we will become completely locked down by big brother. We will have absolutely no rights/freedom. Oh wait… we pretty much don’t anymore. This is a sad time in our nations history. I for one refuse to live this way and am more then willing to go down fighting. Fuck’em all!

    Ten Guage says: “The whole idea of “Justice” is relative…”

    Ain’t that the fucking truth. And the politicians say that the same jury system that can’t be trusted to award money in a lawsuit (and so “tort reform” is needed) can be trusted to decide who should be sent to prison or killed by the state. The same government bureaucrats who are totally inept at regulating corporations will somehow be paragons of efficiency and wisdom when it comes to deciding who should be indefinately detained as “terrorists”. And the citizenry has gotten so stupid from watching television shows like “Law and Order” and “CSI” that they believe the shit that gets poured in their ears. I hope this country never needs its citizenry to be able to think on its feet, as individuals. Society has become so dumbed down and nuetered that the average person can’t function without being told what to do all the time.

    This year should be sadly entertaining, as the politicians that want to look like badasses will campaign at bike shops. Just yesterday, a mile or two from my house, Mitt Romney appeared at a place called Cherokee Trikes, the local Victory dealership that also sells used bikes, some converted into trikes. But if he gets elected, he’ll likely sign yet another Tough New Law or three that will target bikers, maybe increase the penalties for such offenses as being a convicted felon in posession of body armor.

    Camel Cowboys?!…now that is funny! I’ve only ridden for 31 years, but have seen alot of change in my few years. I’ve always identified with the older generation of bikers and have learnt alot about people/clubs. The only one I can truly depend on is Jesus Christ, who has given me a new life, without the continuing cycle of self destruction and poor choices. You’re right about judgement; it’s necessary, but then so is mercy and forgiveness, without which I don’t think any of us would be here?

    Judge not that ye be not judged”

    That is a good one…I needed a laugh today! You are kidding me of course. Lets see how did you put it?

    “ Some of the worst specimens of humanity i’ve met have been bikers, as well as some of the best.” ….”The biker scene is a far cry from what it was 30/40 years ago; I grew up in England and it didn’t matter what bike you rode (British was best!)as long as it was on the road, but it was more about whether you were a brother or not. It seems to be about posing now!” …”In the UK, the biker scene I lived and knew has died and transformed into a plastic counterfeit, where people think living in a fantasy “Bikerworld” is living the real thing, even if they’re patched up!” ….”Having said all this, I do believe that there are still bikers in America, but they’re in the minority of what passes for biker brotherhood!!”…”America sold out to satan many years ago, as did the UK; the only way of escape now is in Jesus Christ!…take it or leave it.
    Judgement is coming and Hell is forever!!”

    Me..I am just a plain spoken, self taught, self made, hand me down cowboy boots type of man. I live my life to a code and set of values and ideals as old as the camel cowboys you do so love to quote…Is judgment involved? Absolutely…We are men who are judged by our words and our actions…sometimes very severely…which I believe is the foundation for an honorable and just society…of course you have been riding for 40+ years and know all about that.

    The whole idea of “Justice” is relative …. and unfortunately for the citizens who are intimidated and/or scared by the perceived hairy biker menace, rattling the windows of the Prius, if the ethically imperfect but “brave” Cobra Hero architype cop has to bend the rules to tame and kill the beast…society is much better for it..Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness be damned! We are ghosts of renegades living our lives on the edge of a fading dream..The once upon a time America…As long as this farce called the moral majority continues to be perpitrated… and men keep getting softer and softer…riding in their Priuses and tellacomuting with their I-pads..the more willing they are to look the other way while our rights are routinely violated in an attempt to lock us up and throw away the key. We have no blue collar working middle class…we don’t make anything… men keep getting softer and more scared…And then along side we come… rattling the windows with steel and spikes and tattoos and armpit hair….Bone handled knives, boots, and chains…flyning ten inches but a whole world away….And they keep whispering about oil tank dipstick knives and gang rapes…Kill the beast…kill the beast….they don’t have the right…Little do they know we are on our way to eat a little pot luck, drink a few beers and occupy the same social roles as any other group in our society…We just tell better stories..AND DON’T TAKE ANY SHIT!

    Dear Big Loser One Percenter,

    Thanks for the good wishes. Same to you.

    Justice is a rigged game. It may be unethical for the same guy to imagine the crime, create the crime, arrest you for the crime and then testify that “based on his training and experience” you are a criminal — but it is not illegal. In fact it is considered good prosecutorial practice.

    Rebel

  21. Big Loser One Percenter Says:

    I hope that this year is a better one for you and all your readers
    Rebel.

    One thought… wouldn’t it be considered a conflict of interest for a government agent that is so intimately involved in writing (creating) a case for prosecuters to then pose himself as an objective expert witness at the trial of the very same case?

    That sounds like stacking the deck in a game of poker. I mean, I can see that our judicial system accepts a lot of cheating, but when is enough blatantly enough?
    Ciccone will have to get caught with cards up his sleeve eventually.

  25. Rebel Says:

    Dear Chingon,

    First thanks for your kind words.

    I suspect that the ATF agents who are involved in all these investigations over and over like the action and the fat paychecks. I think they are also able to avoid scrutiny from the press and their superiors because many people now pee their pants if they happen to see a motorcycle outlaw. So no reputable journalist would ever take the time and the percieved risk to look at something like Black Rain or Black Biscuit. It is much easier to just ask the ATF what happened and then run their line of shit. I think these agents in these investigations are also able to more or less make it up as they go along as long as they all get their stories together and get those stories down on paper. Undercover ATF agents have a much more free hand than some other police jobs. Of course, all cops lie. And as soon as a fabrication or exaggeration gets typed up it becomes “evidence.”

    Happy New Year,
    Rebel

  26. CHINGON Says:

    Wow Rebel it doesnt seem to stop amazing me how all of this just continues and the hard on Ciccone has for the Mongols. It seems as if he caught one of them banging his old lady wearing their patch or something it seems as if he just will not stop until he has been satisfied. So far from all you have reported in the different statements and articles things dont add up they meaning the feds in this so called investigation are all over the place its like they cant remember WTF they are talking about ive gone back and read on other articles and things do not add up. To me it seems as if Law enforcement’s tactics of undercover work was created for the simple fact of giving them the opportunity to live a life they wished they could have lived but at the same time being what they say a role model to society, they are nothing but crooked corrupt wannabe’s. They are they true Outlaws cause they use their badges to frame people and ruin lives, If they say that they purchused drugs and this and that well anyone can get anything and if they posed as brothers to these men they felt they were feeding their friends apetite its all entrapment to me they are the criminals. Why not go in and be a part of the club without trying to get dirty or illegal shit why not just be a member i guarantee no one would have probably approached them and offered nothing… It also seems as if the feds are always trying to steer shit for other clubs not to get along. Thanks Again Rebel for all you do it makes your avg Joe see things differently Your Pal Chingon

  31. Pajama Says:

    OK I am Biased. As a “newbie” I have watched these trials and followed testimony. what stands out to me is that the ATF are the ones that travel across State lines to instigate the crimes, they later turn around and prosecute Brother Mongols for. Crimes that otherwise would not have occurred if the ATF weren’t the instigators to begin with.
    In This case it seems pretty out there that the government contends that a legal defense fund denotes a criminal enterprise. in other words that if anyone were to pay a lawyer a retainer that person INTENDS to commit a crime… Thus as Corporations are people now… When is the government going to go after Exxon/Mobil, BP, Mocrosoft, Apple, Haliburton, KBR Etc etc etc. Also the government is dragging its feet so much in the prosecution of what I see as a clear cut self defense case. NOT disclosing to the Defense Key bits of Evidence. Withholding most everything and adding a charge long after the fact. A Charge they just might make stick and delay after delay simply because the featherheads are crying about one of their own picking a fight… he lost.

  32. Swampy Says:

    WTF?!?! J. Ciccone to be called as the most credible witness in this case? As I posted in Rebel’s “OUT BAD” thread; this is more of Ciccone’s “cloak and dagger” tactics. It’s in HIS best intrest to keep the shit stirred. Something about this case has not set well in my gut since I first read about it. I believe RVN69 with his post(5th of the comments)should set the tone for a mistrial. With the highest regards and respect,

    No. I cannot access the records electronically. I have to access them by hand, in Oakland and sometimes this stuff gets expensive. Like, I had to pay $125 for a search warrant affidavit a couple weeks ago. I do plan to follow up on the story. It is on my list.

    Rebel,
    Have you heard any news about the trial of the bus driver that ran over George Lopez Jr. on the 580 in Oakland.

  36. Rebel Says:

    Dear Roy Buchanan,

    The law is a game. RICO and VICAR are fixed games. Much of what the jury will consider will be what they “already know” about the Mongols and Hells Angels. Telling the jury that they are in danger from either or both clubs is a way to reinforce what the potential jurors already think they know from writers like Jay Dobyns, Julian Sher and William Queen. Nobody ever goes far enough to explain to these jurors that what these authors have written is actually ATF propaganda that is intended, among other things, to prejudice jury pools.

    The jury must be anonymous, the logic goes, because the jury is in danger no matter how it rules.

    Rebel

  37. Rashomon Says:

    Just an observation but you could almost imagine the cops using this site to prove their “anonymous jury” motion and I’m guessing Rebel isn’t on the ATFs Christmas card list so they’d probably enjoy fucking with him.

    If the mere act of establishing a defense fund for an individual charged with a crime is a RICO offense, isn’t the FOP (Fraternal Order of Police) a RICO organization?

    Dear Roy Buchanan,

    The prosecution has moved for an “anonymous jury” because of the “threats presented” by both the Mongols MC and the HAMC.

    “Ciccone, Kozlowski To Testify At Ablett Trial”

    Anything they say outside of name, rank and serial number should be considered a lie and they should be charged with perjury, and I would be suspicious of the name,rank and serial number info too. It speaks volumes of how far our country and freedoms have fallen that egotistical, pathological liars like these are considered “experts” in anything.

    I find it hard to believe that these ATF professional liars get any credence at all. And in an economic climate that sees nurses and teachers losing their jobs, does the US Government still see it fitting to spend millions of dollars on basically framing bikers for being bikers? If lives were not being ruined by these narcissistic bastards it would all read like a fantasy/comedy movie starring Matt Damon.

    Hmmmmm last time I checked MC’s take care of their own regardless if its a Club issue or a domestic spat that the cops escalated when they showed up being assholes.

    Do I get qualified as a expert now? Dip shits!

    “In that testimony a prosecutor asked Ciccone, “What happens if the a criminal act the individual was involved in was not in furtherance of the gang? Does that individual get a defense fund?”
    And Ciccone replied, “ No. He would basically be on his own.””

    LOL WTF??? This guy is an ‘expert’ on clubs, and he makes a statement like that??? I can tell you first-hand that’s bullshit. *Sigh* Why is Ciccone such a fucking fag? I mean, is being a sawed-off little runt such a big god-damned deal? Is it really bad enough to cause one to go through life acting like such a fuck?

    Mr. Ciccone, ” I think..” “If I can recall…” “I don’t remember..” Man, are you for real? They are going to have fun with you in a month. We both know, unequivocally, beyond any doubt, you have no case. Where are you getting this jury pool from? People need to have an address, be able to read, able to show up, able to comprehend basic concepts. You can’t just select people from Napa State Hospital, or dredge the City for crackheads.How could anyone with an iq over 80 buy your act? They won’t. You are going to lose, and spend a lot of our money for nothing.I’d love to see you held financially responsible for this sham, you and your cronies.You are not making us safe. You are not making a difference. I believe you don’t even care, you be havin too much fun ballin on our dime. Roy B.
