RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A federal judge in Virginia has sentenced the national president of the Outlaws motorcycle gang to 20 years in prison.

Jack Rosga of Milwaukee was sentenced Friday for racketeering and conspiracy to commit violence in aid of racketeering. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson said he was holding Rosga accountable for the Outlaws' "culture of violence."

Rosga's attorney, Claire Cardwell, said she will appeal the convictions and the sentence. Prosecutors had sought a 23-year term.

Also set for sentencing Friday are Mark Jason Fiel and Christopher Timbers of the Outlaws' Manassas, Va., chapter and Harry McCall of the Lexington, N.C., chapter.

They were among 27 current or former Outlaws indicted last June for participating in what prosecutors called a violent criminal enterprise. More than half entered guilty pleas.
