Placeholder Image

More than a year after indictment, eight defendants are set to go to trial in federal court in Gainesville on conspiracy and firearm charges.

Federal authorities charged 23 people, most with ties to the Outlaw Motorcycle Club and affiliate clubs in Georgia, authorities said, with drug and gun offenses stemming from an undercover FBI investigation.

Being tried in Gainesville are Davey Honeycutt, Brandon Musser, Reynol Castrejon, Phillip Honeycutt, Thomas Coley, Josue Guerrero, David Rizo-Troncoso and Jessi Castillo, all charged with drug and weapon conspiracy charges in USA v. Honeycutt et al.

The men pleaded not guilty.

The case is scheduled for U.S. District Judge Richard Story’s Sept. 23 calendar call.
