Four members of Hells Angels agree to plea deal

AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — On Tuesday, four members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang accepted a plea deal in Augusta County Circuit Court for their roles in a shooting and assault at the Hometown Inn last September.

Augusta County Commonwealth's Attorney Tim Martin said he offered them the plea deal last week. He says he is happy with the outcome, considering the victim in the case was not cooperative.

Nathaniel Villaman, Joseph Paturzo and Richard West were all involved in the fight. They each pleaded guilty to one count of malicious wounding by a mob, and will serve four years in prison.

Anthony Milan, who was charged with attempted murder for his role in the fight, also pleaded guilty to one count of malicious wounding by a mob and one count of use of a firearm in commission of a felony. He will serve eight years for those two charges.

"The fact that they got those substantial sentences," Martin said, "I thought was a win, given the hurdles that we had here."

The FBI also investigated the case, and Martin says he worked with the U.S. Attorney's office. As part of the plea deal, the U.S. Attorney's office will not pursue federal charges.

Dominick Eadicicco, the last of the five men involved in the attack, did not accept the deal. He is still scheduled for a trial in March.
