Two high ranking members of the Bandidos found guilty

Jurors in San Antonio convicted Bandidos President Jeffrey Fay Pike and Vice President Xavier Portillo Thursday on federal racketeering related to multiple murders, attempted murders, assaults, extortion and drug trafficking charges. They are facing up to life in federal prison.

Among the charges of which Pike and Portillo were convicted for was the orchestration of the 2006 murder of Anthony Benesh of Austin.
Pike and Portillo ordered other Bandidos members to murder Benesh, who was attempting to start a Texas Chapter of the Hell’s Angels in Austin at the time. In March of 2017, four members of the Bandidos motorcycle organization were indicted by a federal grand jury in connection to Benesh's murder.
