Hell's Angels President Going to Prison
updated: Nov 04, 2010, 3:05 PM

By Sheli Ellsworth

The president of the Ventura Chapter of the Hell's Angels, carpenter Sabian Reynoso, will probably be serving his presidency from state prison. Reynoso, a 34-year-old felon was sentenced to 32 months after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm stemming from a jail visit.

The original felony conviction was from a 2000 stabbing incident. Reynoso was sentenced to two years in prison for stabbing a friend who accidentally fell asleep and failed to turn on the hot tub for a party.a letter to the court claiming that the incident was actually a drunken brawl between friends. And Reynoso appears to have hundreds of friends. He maintains MySpace and Facebook profiles with over 300 "Facebook friends." He is also a sport angler, who occasionally travels to Mexico to fish, according to one friend George Christie. Reynoso's prize catches have made several fishing news websites.

On February 1, 2008, Reynoso was spotted at the Ventura County Jail when he went to deposit money into an inmate's account. Felons are not allowed to enter jail grounds without express written permission. The inmate, Jared Plomell, also a Hell's Angel member, was being held on drug and firearm charges. Reynoso signed his own name to the receipt and showed his driver's license as identification.

On February 2, 2008 deputies served a search warrant on Reynoso looking for evidence of the illegal jail visit. They found paperwork relating to Plomell's location, a pump action shotgun and "numerous items indicating that Reynoso was the president of the Ventura Chapter of the Hell's Angels" according to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office. Christie, a Former Hell's Angel leader himself, says Reynoso, the father of two toddlers, was out of town when the warrant was served.

Reynoso claims his wife brings the shotgun to the house for personal protection when he is away. Christie, whose daughter Moriya Christie is Reynoso's attorney, maintains that Reynoso may appeal the search warrant's validity, since Ventura County Sheriff 's Gang Unit deputies already had enough evidence for "the jail grounds charge" that was later dismissed.
