San Diego Hells Angel gets 21 years on drug charge

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A member of San Diego's Hells Angels chapter who was among the central targets of an FBI investigation that brought three dozen indictments has been sentenced to 21 years and 10 months in prison on a drug charge and faces many more felony counts, including murder.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/VFjPJt) reports 43-year-old Michael Ottinger received the sentence Wednesday.

Ottinger was a so-called “enforcer” for the Hells Angels, and during the trial testimony revealed he had been awarded the gang's “Filthy Few” and “Thug Crew” patches, given to members who use violence on behalf of other members.

Ottinger was considered the highest-value target in the yearlong FBI Violent Crime Task Force investigation that led to his arrest last year.

He has also been charged with murder, robbery and other felonies.
