Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

2 pagans plead not guilty

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Two more defendants named in a racketeering case aimed at the Pagans Motorcycle Club have pleaded not guilty to federal charges.

Court records show 49-year-old Philadelphia resident Joseph Fareri and 47-year-old Alexandria, Va., resident John Maggio entered the pleas Monday in Charleston.

Both are charged in the 44-count federal indictment accusing Pagans members and associates from West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Florida of murder conspiracy, kidnapping and other charges.

Maggio's status is likely temporary. He's currently scheduled to plead guilty next week. Maggio is charged with conspiring with indicted club vice president Floyd Moore in an extortion plot.
