Former member details beating by biker gang

(Continued)

“You got my word, ain’t nobody gonna bother you,” Eliason says, instructing the alleged victim to sign the title but not to date it. “You did the right thing.”

“My son?” asks the alleged victim, sighing. “The threats yesterday, my family?”

“I said, if you blew me off today. Those were promises, not threats,” Eliason tells him “If you blew me off today, you were going to open up a (expletive) show.”

Stephen Neyman, Avelis’ lawyer, argued that his client said nothing and did nothing during any of the encounters. “He didn’t say one thing,” said Neyman.

While the other lawyers made similar arguments highlighting what they say was the limited implication of their clients compared with Barr and Eliason, only Neyman was successful in winning bail for his client.

Carmine Lepore, who represents Brown, said his client served in both the Army and Navy and is “100 percent disabled,” as a result. “A simple stay away order is all that’s required for Mr. Brown to return to his life,” said Lepore.

All six are due back in court April 2 for a pre-trial hearing in the case.
