INDIANAPOLIS A member of a drug-dealing motorcycle gang is scheduled to face trial in federal court later this month.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt set Outlaws member Christian Miller's trial on racketeering charges for Sept. 24.

Miller was charged with helping fake an automobile accident to collect insurance money and a fraudulent raffle scheme.

Outlaw Stephen Duff also pleaded guilty to racketeering Thursday under an agreement with federal prosecutors. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 9. Under the plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend a sentence of about one to two years and Duff must make restitution of more than $100,000 to the car insurance companies.

The men were among dozens of alleged gang members charged in 2012 with racketeering, extortion, drug charges, witness tampering, and operating an illegal gambling operation.
