Legal proceedings continue in federal court for a 55-year-old Vacaville man who is a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition.

Kenneth Caspers Jr., indicted on the charge in January, appeared in a Sacramento courtroom on Tuesday for a status conference in the case, but a judge continued the matter until Aug. 1, The Reporter has learned.

As previously reported, Caspers was the fourth person to be indicted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Department of Justice’s Eastern District of California based on an investigation into a brutal beating at the Hells Angels’ Vallejo clubhouse. The other three defendants — Jaime Alvarez of Vallejo, Dennis Killough Jr. of Vacaville, and Michael Mahoney of Fairfield — were indicted by a grand jury in 2022.

Alvarez, 52, a previously convicted felon who earlier pleaded guilty to weapons charges, was sentenced last month to 21 months in prison. Killough, also 52, who pleaded to weapons charges on Jan. 9, is scheduled for sentencing on June 26. Mahoney, 30, is scheduled for sentencing on May 2. Previously convicted felons, both face a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a $250,000 fine.

According to court documents, in October 2021, two different victims — both of whom were members of a different motorcycle club that is considered a “puppet,” or subordinate, club of the Hells Angels — were beaten by Caspers, Mahoney, Alvarez, Killough and other club members based on perceived infractions of the Hells Angels’ rules, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert said.

Court documents showed that, on Dec. 8, 2021, law enforcement officers, carrying out a search warrant at Caspers’ Vacaville home, found several firearms and ammunition, including 18 rounds of .22‑caliber, .25‑caliber, and/or .38-caliber ammunition in Caspers’ master bedroom and bathroom. Caspers had previously been convicted of several felony crimes — including a previous felony conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm — that prevent him from possessing firearms or ammunition, noted Talbert.
