Road Dog Cycle Owner and Others Plead Guilty in Federal Court

U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of California
June 22, 2010


FRESNO—United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced today that three men indicted in connection with a federal racketeering case entered various pleas of guilty before United States District Judge Oliver W. Wanger today, as follows:

Robert C. Holloway, 62, of Turlock, entered a guilty plea to Racketeering through a pattern of activity that included Trafficking in Stolen Motorcycle Parts, Collecting Extensions of Credit by Extortionate Means and Conspiring to Obstruct Justice. According to court documents, Robert Holloway admitted that between January 1, 1997, and March 1, 2008, he was engaged in a racketeering enterprise through his business, Road Dog Cycle. Robert Holloway agreed to forfeit $115,000, representing his interest in Road Dog Cycle. He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 13, 2010. The maximum statutory penalty for racketeering is 20 years and a fine of up to $250,000. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

Brent F. Holloway, 36, of Turlock, the son of Robert C. Holloway, entered a guilty plea to Trafficking in Stolen Motorcycle Parts. According to court documents, Brent Holloway admitted that between August 3, 2006, and December 4, 2007, he possessed, or aided and abetted the possession, of motorcycle parts delivered to Road Dog Cycle, knowing that an identification number for such motor vehicle or motor vehicle part had been removed, obliterated, tampered with, or altered. He is also scheduled to be sentenced on September 13, 2010. The maximum statutory penalty for a violation of trafficking in stolen motorcycle parts is 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

Anthony D. Fantacone, 68, of Boiling Springs, South Carolina, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of blackmail. According to court documents, Fantacone admitted that on or about October 11, 2004, in exchange for the promise of future employment with Robert Holloway, he failed to report the extortionate collection of a debt against victim Richard Baptista. He too is scheduled to be sentenced on September 13, 2010. The maximum statutory penalty for blackmail is one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

This case is the product of an extensive investigation by the Central Valley Gang Impact Task Force, a task force comprised of state and federal law enforcement agencies including the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office, the Modesto Police Department, the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Mark E. Cullers and Laurel J. Montoya.
