2 Outlaws members sentenced to federal prison following guilty pleas

Kent D. Whitinger, Steve A. Reynolds sentenced

INDIANAPOLIS - Two members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, which was raided by the FBI in July, were sentenced to prison Thursday after entering guilty pleas.

Kent D. Whitinger, also known as "Flush," 49, of Indianapolis was sentenced to seven years in federal prison.

Steve A. Reynolds, 38, of Fort Wayne was sentenced to almost six years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett said both men admitted to a variety of crimes.

Whitinger, a member of the Indianapolis chapter of the OMC, pleaded guilty to money laundering, gambling, extortion, witness tampering and cocaine distribution.

Reynolds, a member of the OMC Fort Wayne chapter, admitted to engaging in extortion and distributing prescription drugs.

Both defendants were also sentenced to five years of supervised release, which includes random drug screens and random searches, following their release from prison.

The terms of the supervised release also forbid both men from affiliating with members of any motorcycle club.

The 70-page indictment filed in July 2012 charges 42 alleged gang members with various crimes, including racketeering, mail fraud, money laundering, extortion, drug charges, wire fraud, witness tampering and operating an illegal gambling operation.

In October 2012, nine additional club members were charged.
