Minnesota - An Apple Valley man who admitted supplying drugs to a chapter president of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club was sentenced Friday to 14 years in prison.
Brad Jacobsen, 54, admitted in his guilty plea in January that from the early 1980s through about 2001, he had regularly supplied large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine to Pat Matter, who was president of the Minnesota chapter of the club. Matter pleaded guilty to trafficking drugs and is serving a 12-year prison sentence, reduced for his cooperation with the government.
Jacobsen's first trial in the case ended in a hung jury. In the middle of a retrial in January, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute the drugs and was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Richard Kyle in St. Paul.
