Hells Angels boss Dale Sweeney denied prison unit move

Former Manitoba Hells Angels president Dale Sweeney has lost his bid to be returned to Stony Mountain Institution’s minimum-security unit. Sweeney, 49, argued his August 2018 removal from the prison’s minimum-security unit and transfer to its medium-security unit unjustly deprived him of his liberty.

In 2013, Sweeney pleaded guilty to leading a large and sophisticated cocaine trafficking ring and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
According to CSC, a decision was made to re-evaluate Sweeney’s security classification following "threatening and violent behaviour" in July 2018. Evidence "believed reliable" showed that Sweeney headed an operation trafficking in drugs, including steroids, and ordered the assault of another inmate.

A search of Sweeney’s unit, which he shared with several other inmates, uncovered rolling papers, syringes, a cellphone, debt sheets, pills and steroids. Sweeney alleged a security evaluation "arbitrarily" added four points to his institutional score, automatically placing him in the medium-security classification.
