Special Memory Sentencing

October 18, 2013

All Posts, News

The first former defendant in the Special Memory Wedding Chapel Yuletide knife fight case was sentenced yesterday in Las Vegas.

James Murray, a former member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, was sentenced by Judge Ken Cory to serve two to ten years in prison and pay $8,875 in restitution. Murray pled guilty last July to a charge of “Battery with substantial bodily harm with intent to promote the activities of a criminal gang.” Murray was a defendant in a three week trial that ended in a mistrial in August 2012.

Murray is no longer a member of the motorcycle club. He told the judge yesterday that he regretted joining the Angels. “I was only a motorcycle enthusiast,” he said. “I’m not a criminal.”

The Case

The case began on a Sunday evening, December 20, 2008 when 13 guests at a Hells Angels wedding attacked a Mongols Motorcycle Club wedding party. James Nalder and Eugene Formica, the Mongols groom and his best man, were stabbed multiple times. The entire incident was video recorded. Two other members of the Mongols party were punched and someone in the Hells Angels party threw a bottle at the Mongols bride.

Murray has maintained throughout the case that he acted in self-defense. He said the Mongols had “snickered” at him and he feared for his life.

Prosecutor Sonia Jimenez called the fight was an unprovoked attack.

The Angels Groom

This morning Brad Goldsmith, the Hells Angels groom, pled guilty to attempted coercion and battery causing substantial bodily harm. Goldsmith will probably be sentenced to at least 16 months in prison. Brad Goldsmith has also left the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club.

His father, a well known and widely respected former member of the Angels named Charles “Peewee” Goldsmith, pled guilty this morning to coercion and battery with substantial bodily harm with a criminal gang enhancement. He faces between two and five years in prison.

Both Goldsmiths will be sentenced March 18, 2014.

Ten of the dozen defendants in the case have now pled guilty to something. The two remaining defendants, James Sexey and John Merchant, are scheduled to stand trial next April.

    some special memory news:

    A Nevada judge agreed Wednesday to hear testimony in February about whether the Hells Angels is an outlaw motorcycle gang before sentencing four men who pleaded guilty in a 2008 wedding chapel brawl in Las Vegas that left six people hurt.

    Never explain:

    1. Your detractors will never believe it.

    2. Your true friends don’t need it.

    Seems some asshole will latch onto something and state crap (not unlike several names that I rarely see post a damn useful thing here suddenly acquiring voice) just to see if anybody notices.

    Amazing intellects pop up out of the woodwork to pick apart sentence structure without proper educational credentials, opinion becomes the ruling class of the web and I’ll just stick to dealing with what folk say to my face. Fuck all the rest.

    @ Vince 1%er,
    One Eye posted that “discretion is the better part of valour”, and you respondedby telling us about your Silver Star medal with the V device on the back. Unfortunately, there has never been such a medal, so your current stance that you don’t have to justify anything …especially something that cannot be true, is irrational

  7. Joe K Says:

    @Vince, I’m still confused–are you saying that you have a silver star? If so, what’s with the “V” comment? When, in the history of the Marine Corps, has a “V” device been given on anything over a bronze star? I would think that an actual silver star recipient would not make that statement.

    Earning MY Silver Star was NO Joke Indeed.
    I Spent way too much time here defending that Honorable Service award-But I stand behind MY Stance,Explanation and Service which I Earned thru personal sacrafice and injury that I Remember (& still suffer thru) to this day.
    I Meant NO Disrespect or Wavering of the Recognition and Sacrafice Others(Your Brothers Included as you stated) went thru and Lived Thru.
    My Stance & Replys here will remain consistent & unwavering to the others here who wanna debate & argue….as I Have NO Conscience or Desire to Substantiate the Honors I Earned ,Bestowed Upon Me & That I Lived Thru.

    @ Sieg and N P ;
    I Agree 100% with Both of you. I shouldn’t have (nor did I intend ) to hijack or interrupt this topic/thread ,and in the heat of the moment I responded where the topic veered off and insinuated Bullshit towards Me.
    Again it wasnt My Intention to do that.
    I Appreciate your and the other replys and I’ll stand down on this here.

  12. Sieg Says:

    Vince, I don’t know if you are including me as a “detractor”, but just in case, I’ll be upfront.

    I haven’t said anything derogatory about you, but I did say it would be appropriate for you to give Rebel, or whoever here you choose, your bona fides.

    I say that not to take anything away from you or your service, but rather in honor of my Brothers who earned the Silver Star, more than once with their lives. Anyone that claims that award without earning it-and again, I ain’t saying you did or didn’t-disrespects all of them. you should be able to get behind that.

    My opinion doesn’t matter to anyone but me, so no big thing. You are who you are, and it really doesn’t mean squat what anyone else thinks.

    With respects where due.

  19. TigGirl Says:

    Gentlemen,

    There are two things about this situation that absolutely SCREAM that this was a set up by the feds.
    One…. Are there not 3 million wedding chapels in Vegas? And those 3 million chapels are open most, if not all, of 24 hours a day? Does anyone else think it is highly suspect that these two groups of people end up at the same chapel with overlapping times?

    Two…the incessant use of the word UNPROVOKED makes me think “agent provocateur” in a fingernails on a chalkboard sort of way.

    Respectfully,

    @Neutral,

    I was commenting on what Rebel wrote:

    “His father, a well known and widely respected former member of the Angels named Charles “Peewee” Goldsmith, pled guilty this morning to coercion and battery with substantial bodily harm with a criminal gang enhancement. He faces between two and five years in prison.”

    “Charles Goldsmith, who was kicked out of the Hells Angels after making a statement to Las Vegas police, will be sentenced in March.”

    I had made an assumption that Peewee was out good before this happened. It appears I made a wrong assumption and apologize for my mistake and not including a number of people on my POS list.

    It’s no one’s business but Sieg’s and mine as to how we are connected.

    August 25th, 2013 at 7:15 am “The clubhouse is back up and running. The fixes were easy and laughable.”

    That part was not in the paper. It is back up and running, but members only for now. That is why they have the party at New Mill Tap. I was there.

    First of all I will roger up and apologize to you Warthog, I went back and re-read everything that you wrote. It was my misunderstanding of some of the things that you wrote or I took out of context, man to man my apologies.

    However Pee Wee did not retire before this incident. He was in fact an active member of the club during this brawl.

    WARTHOG Says:
    August 25th, 2013 at 7:15 am “The clubhouse is back up and running. The fixes were easy and laughable. There will be a defence party on August 31st at Rockford’s New Mill Tap. Come out and support freedom and your local red and white.”

    How would I come with that info do you figure, asshole?

    It’s all over Facebook man; New Mill Tap was a public party

    Interesting how how an OL supporter is backing the play of an known Chicago/outside Chicago Affiliate. How that happens is beyond me but that’s cool too.

    Chicago is a funny place when it comes to clubs.

    My whole point behind my original post is don’t be a sheep (Everyone not Warthog). There are details of this case, as well as the Rockford Case that people do not know. The details people know are details that were told to them by 3 sides. The clubs side, LEs (bullshit) side, and the truth. Seek the truth before you form an opinion. To any and all that I have disrespected that was not my intent

    Neutral, or anyone else.

    WARTHOG is indeed a full-patch member of an old and respected club outside of Chicago. I have met him and talked to him, seen his cut, and know his people. They are, indeed, close to the HA out this way, and have been back into the murky past.

    And that’s really all you need to know. He spoke on what he knew, period.

    Too bad others here didn’t do the same.

    @Neutral,

    Oh, where do I begin?

    “you also called Brad out saying that he didnt stick by his father. Pee Wee is out to. Please check your facts before you post here and pretend to know all the facts.”

    First, “Peewee” retired well before this incident and didn’t quit when the shit got hot.

    “Just cause you are in a support club and have “friends” that are HA does not make you an authority”

    I plainly stated, “Although I am not in an official support club, the club I ride with are very close friends with the 81. I feel I needed to make that clear because my next statement may not be taken well by 81 patch holders or their supporters.”

    Obviously not following anything a HA may or may not have said. Not even sure to whom you are referring when you say,” Just because an HA says something doesn’t mean it’s fact.”

    “Same holds true when I saw you post in the Dark Cloud over Rockford story that Rebel wrote. There too you claimed to have “facts” and first hand knowledge of what happened.”

    I actually said,

    WARTHOG Says:
    July 30th, 2013 at 7:59 am “I wasn’t there and don’t know the entire story.” But like Rebel says, I know more than I’m telling.

    Then, in a later post…

    WARTHOG Says:

    How would I come with that info do you figure, asshole?

    Not sure why people brag on their medals; I dont even really like talking about where I’ve been. I’m a recent Vet, and don’t care to measure my dick with other vets you either served or you didn’t.

    All I will say about this is stop being sheep. Just because an HA says something doesn’t mean it’s fact. I make this statement because a poster said that his club is close with HA. Just cause you are in a support club and have “friends” that are HA does not make you an authority, you also called Brad out saying that he didnt stick by his father. Pee Wee is out to. Please check your facts before you post here and pretend to know all the facts. Same holds true when I saw you post in the Dark Cloud over Rockford story that Rebel wrote. There too you claimed to have “facts” and first hand knowledge of what happened. The truth is you are a sheep that only listens to one side of the story.

    There are 3 sides to every story don’t follow be a leader then form your opinion.

  35. Krunk Says:

    @Road Whore,
    Sounds simple enough, but when there is no such thing as a Silver Star with a V it makes it a bit difficult to accomplish. Google “Stolen Valor Act” and you will see that there is a law against falsely claiming unearned medals for personal gain.
    Odds are we’ve seen the last of Vince 1%er here.

  36. Road Whore Says:

    All VINCE 1%er gotta do is post a photo of the front and back of the medal. Ends the discussion right there.
