Former bike gang leader 'Gorilla' sentenced

PHILADELPHIA - January 31, 2011

Steven "Gorilla" Mondervergine has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years behind bars.

Mondevergine pleaded guilty to shooting Timothy Flood in the knee and stabbing him in the back on January 30, 2008, in Northeast Philadelphia because he wanted his job back as president of the Pagan's Motorcycle Club.

Flood survived the attack.

Investigators found Mondevergine late last year hiding in his mother's house in New Jersey.

Mondevergine is a former Philadelphia police officer who was fired in 1982, after three years on the job, for allegedly accepting bribes to protect an illegal gambling operation.

He adamantly denied the charges, which were later dropped.
