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

Pagan due in court

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man charged in a federal indictment targeting the Pagans Motorcycle Club is due to enter a plea to a charge of interstate travel in aid of racketeering.

Forty-eight-year-old Philadelphia resident Vincent Pezzano's arraignment is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary Stanley in Charleston.

Pezzano is one of several members or associates of the Pagans accused of traveling to West Virginia to give the proceeds of what prosecutors say was an illegal raffle to club leaders in April 2008.

The charge is one of 44 leveled at Pagans members and associates from West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Florida by federal prosecutors last month.

Pezzano has been held in the South Central Regional Jail since Oct. 29.
