Aryan gang members charged with racketeering, conspiracy to commit murder – East Oregonian

Mauer is the founder of the United Aryan Empire, Jenkins said, while Tinnell and Browning are members. Pendleton police Chief Stuart Roberts has said the defendants told detectives they were gang members, and Browning admitted he was involved in multiple criminal conspiracies to commit violence against others. Pendleton police arrested the trio in the past two weeks as part of a sweep following a vehicle shooting Jan. 9 north of Pendleton. Police also linked the men to shootings in late 2014 in Pendleton.

They initially faced felony weapons charges, but Jenkins told Circuit Court Judge Lynn Hampton the state was dismissing those cases and filing new ones based on secret indictments a grand jury handed up Thursday night.

The state charged Mauer, Browning and Tinnell with one count of racketeering each going back to January 2012, and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder for a shooting into a Pendleton home Nov. 23, 2014. The state also charged them with one count each of second-degree assault and riot and four counts each of felon in possession of firearms, among other crimes, including in connection with a shooting this past Christmas Eve in Pendleton. Browning faces 12 counts in all, Mauer 17 and Tinnell 21.

Hampton asked Jenkins what “exposure to imprisonment” Browning faces. After some math, Jenkins said Browning could serve 346 months, or almost 29 years.
