The case is ‘United States v. Ralph Hubert Barger Jr. et al’ Criminal Number 79-0226-SC
The letter references the cooperation of the Santa Clara County District Attorneys Office and their representative who was the Chairman of the ‘Northern California Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Investigators’
The award to this employee is seen in the pictures and is included in your purchase. We kinda think they would be cool together in a larger frame and displayed on a Chapter wall maybe? I personally find the irony of that intriguing but then it’s not my wall and that’s a big distinction. Made by people much bigger distinctions than me.

We will only share what these additional artifacts are to a buyer meeting the description described above under ‘bonus’. We’re offering this out of respect, privacy and for the opportunity to own a curated grouping of items that cannot be duplicated anywhere or even found.
Case HistorySourced from:[link removed by ]

“ On June 13th, 1979, 200 federal agents raided the homes of top Hells Angels members in and around Oakland, California. The Department of Justicecharged 32 Angelswith conspiracy charges, connected to a methamphetamine operation that prosecutors alleged netted $160,000 in daily street sales.

The 64 collective indictments charged the Angels under theRICO statute.

The RICO trial for Barger and 17 of his fellow indicted Angels began on October 4th, 1979.Billy Hunterwas the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California. Hunter, a 36-year-old ex-NFL punt returner who would later lead the National Basketball Association’s player’s union, was helped in the prosecution by ayoung Assistant U.S. Attorneynamed Robert Mueller. Hunter and Mueller presented their case toJudge Samuel Conti, a conservative jurist known as “Hanging Sam” for his enthusiastic support for the death penalty.

Shortly after the trial began, Barger, whose bail was set at $1 million, sat with Washington Post reporter Cynthia Gorneyfor a defiant jailhouse interview. Barger attacked law enforcement: “As far as the beaters-up of the poor innocent citizen, the killing of the poor innocent citizen, such as that, the authorities got a way bigger part in it than we do.”

Barger went on to fiercely criticize RICO: “I think that this is probably the most important case that’s ever come down in the history of the United States. Because it’s a mass criminal trial,” Barger explained. “They’re trying everybody for what everybody done, even though the majority of us have already been to prison for what we done.”

One of Barger’s lawyers, Frank Mangan, also chimed in. “This is in essence taking his whole life, everything that he’s ever done and everything bad 31 people have ever done, and throwing it all out in front of a jury,” Mangan complained. “If they don’t get him on this case, maybe they’ll leave him alone.”

Another defense attorney, Richard Mazer, argued that the Angels were not a formal criminal enterprise: “A lot of Angels are guilty of a lot of stuff, but they are not club activities.”

The Angels ran with the anti-RICO sentiment. They paid for a full-page San Francisco Chronicle advertisement accusing the government of using a sprawling statute to violate civil liberties.

The sprawling portrait of the Angels’ misdeeds, however, did not convince the jury that there was a centralized meth distribution scheme, the charge on which the indictments depended. After 17 days of deliberation, the jury hung. On August 7th, 1980, the government dropped the conspiracy and racketeering charges against most defendants, including Barger, who celebrated by seeing his friend Willie Nelson at the Oakland Coliseum. At the show, Nelson dedicated his song “Whiskey River” to Barger and his wife Sharon. “
