4 plead guilty in Hells Angels case in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS — Four accused Hells Angels pleaded guilty in Las Vegas to a single felony charge stemming from a 2008 brawl with rival Mongols motorcycle gang members that injured six people at a downtown wedding chapel.

The pleas Friday by Dominic Orlando, Frederick O'Dell, Brandon Young and John Dawson brought to five the number of men who've taken plea deals to avoid a retrial on multiple charges including attempted murder, conspiracy and taking part in activities of a criminal gang.

One defendant, James Sexey, balked at pleading guilty to two felonies.

Sexey's lawyer says his client expects to stand trial beginning Aug. 5 with another accused Hells Angels member, John Merchant.

Merchant and Sexey are accused of stabbing two Mongols during the December 2008 fracas at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.
