Hells Angels Trial Opens

Attorneys made opening statements in the big RICO trial against members of the Washington Nomads chapter of the Hells Angels. A big issue will be witness credibility -- will the jury believe the witnesses who struck deals in exchange for their testimony? The trial is projected to last ten weeks. Hells Angels' defense: Witnesses are "rats,", Seattle Times, March 13, 2007.

In his statement Todd Maybrown, representing Rodney Rollness, said that one of the witnesses against Rollness has changed his story, since he earlier said his attackers were members of a different gang. (Maybrown was a Trial Ad instructor fall quarter.)
