In a one-page order, U.S. District Judge Joseph Spero denied a motion asking for Raymond “Ray Ray” Foakes to be released to Oakley while he awaits trial. Foakes wanted to live in the rural Contra Costa County city and work at a mechanic shop in Oakland, and said he would submit to house arrest and an ankle monitor.

The motion was denied Friday, after a 30-minute hearing, according to court records.

Foakes was one of 11 people indicted in November 2017, after an FBI investigation that focused on the Sonoma Hells Angels. Foakes is a former president of the Hells Angels’ Sonoma chapter.

According to State Police, the incident started inside Joker’s, when 2 “non club members” entered the club.They became inebriated and were asked to leave.

The charges include an alleged murder that took place at the Fresno Hells Angels clubhouse in 2014 involving four of the defendants. Foakes was charged with relatively lesser offenses: participating in an assault and attempting to intimidate a witness in a criminal investigation from coming forward.

Foakes’ attorney argued that his client did not pose a danger nor a flight risk, and that his release from jail was warranted because the case is at least several months away from reaching its end.

Federal prosecutors argued that Foakes did pose a danger to society, citing his criminal history, which includes violence.
