The last two of six Hells Outcasts motorcycle gang members convicted of beating a St. Paul bar bouncer in 2018 were sentenced this month.
Anthony Joseph Ledo, 40, of St. Paul was sentenced Tuesday and Richard John Mader, 43, of Vadnais Heights was sentenced Jan. 5, both in Ramsey County District Court.
Both pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree riot. They must each serve 45 days on electronic home monitoring, pay a $50 fine plus fees and complete 200 hours of community service.
If they remain law-abiding, Judge George Stephenson said they may be able to have the felony charge reduced to a gross misdemeanor.
“I take full responsibility for my actions that night,” Ledo said Tuesday during a sentencing done via Zoom because he had COVID-19.
On Nov. 9, 2018, Ledo was seen on surveillance video arriving at the St. Paul Saloon at 1045 Hudson Road about 11:15 p.m. He pushed past the bouncer, who denied him entrance because he was wearing a Hells Outcast vest. Ledo pushed the bouncer away and sat down, the charges say.
Several other Hells Outcast members, including Mader, arrived shortly after. The men surrounded the bouncer and began assaulting him. He suffered serious injuries to his right eye, including a torn cornea, and to his knee.
One of the men, Justin Raymond Wainner, grabbed the bouncer’s gun and threatened to shoot up the bar. The bar owner immediately received threatening phone calls admonishing him not to cooperate with police, charges say.
