NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New York man characterized as a leader of the Pagans motorcycle gang has been sentenced to more than two and half years in prison for illegal gun possession. The U.S. attorney’s office says Keith Richter was arrested in February in New Jersey on his way back from a party in Pennsylvania. Police found a Ruger handgun in the car the Long Island resident was riding in. The 62-year-old pleaded guilty in July to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He had previously been convicted of racketeering-related charges in New York in the late 1990s and was released from prison in 2012.
