Canadian Hells Angel Chad Wilson, 33, is charged with being a nonimmigrant alien in possession of a firearm and was indicted Wednesday in federal court. He is accused of being admitted into the United States under a nonimmigrant visa and unlawfully possessing firearms: two .40 caliber pistols, a Heckler & Koch 9-mm caliber pistol, an FEG 7.62 x 39-caliber rifle and a Calico 9-mm caliber rifle. 
Wilson, who was living in San Diego, could be sentenced up to 10 years in prison if convicted. 


You may recall an earlier post where I mentioned that after deliberating over three days, a jury had found Wilson and fellow Hells Angels prospect John Midmore, 35, of Valparaiso, Ind., not guilty of attempting to murder five people affiliated with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club during the Sturgis motorcycle rally. During that trial Wilson testified that he fired several rounds with a .40-caliber handgun in self-defense after nine Outlaws members confronted him and Midmore at Legion Lake Resort. The Outlaws injured were Thomas Haas, Allen Matthews and Danny Neace. They and the two women with them, Claudia Wables and Susan Evans-Martin, testified at the trial.

Upon being found innocent, Midmore, a resident alien with citizenship in both Canada and Australia, made bond and was released.  However, Wilson remains in the Sioux Falls county jail where lawyers say he faces deportation to Canada.

In another court document filed this past Wednesday, prosecutors asked that Wilson be transferred to Rapid City for an appearance on the most recent indictment. Tracy Kelley, Custer County state’s attorney, said she also plans to try Wilson and Midmore on a more serious charge of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, which carries a punishment of life in prison if convicted.

Wilson and Midmore each have a separate civil lawsuit pending against 19 federal agencies and officials, claiming they withheld information showing that the Outlaws were targeting Hells Angels.

  1. When found innocent we will try you and try you again till we eventually find you guilty of something? It’s like having a re count after re count till you get the president in? I thought this was America not Zimbabwe or Nigeria. What happened to the Land Of The Free And Thee Brave? How come none of the people whi surrounded these two guys haven’t been charged with anything? What are they guilty of? Defending themselves, baring arms? read your own constitution? Makes me think they would only have been thought to be totally innocent if they had been murdured by the people surrounding the pick up and they went free? Come on Miss Kelly I hope you never have to get your 38 out of your purse when someone is trying to rape and murder you!

  2. if you are going to charge him with nonimmigrant alien in possession of a firearm shouldn’t you charge every alien that goes hunting or to a fire range with the same thing? sounds to me like you are just pulling at straws now. also sounds to me like you are very bitter that you lost.
