Va. Man Sentenced in Pagan's Racketeering Case

April 14, 2010

A Virginia businessman will spend more than three years in prison for an extortion conviction involving the Pagan's Motorcycle Club.

John N. Maggio of Alexandria, Va., pleaded guilty in November. The 47-year-old electrical contractor admitted asking a Pagan's officer for help extorting nearly $30,000 from two business associates.

Maggio was later recorded telling a Pagan's member to threaten the associates and that he didn't care how badly they might be hurt.

He is one of more than 15 defendants who have pleaded guilty in a sweeping federal racketeering case targeting Pagan's leaders and associates from West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and several other states.
