PORTLAND, Maine — A former Outlaws motorcycle club enforcer in Maine has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for charges stemming from the shooting of a rival Hells Angels club member.
U.S. District Judge George Singal on Tuesday sentenced Michael “Madman” Pedini to 63 months for two racketeering-related charges. Pedini pleaded guilty last fall.
Prosecutors said Pedini and fellow Outlaws member Thomas “Tomcat” Mayne ambushed a Hells Angels member outside a Hells Angels clubhouse in Canaan in October 2009. The Hells Angels member was seriously injured, but survived. Mayne died later in a shootout with federal authorities.
Court documents indicate the attempted hit was ordered by the Outlaws’ national president as payback for an earlier attack by Hell’s Angels members on Outlaws’ members in Connecticut.
