Four members of the Detroit Highwaymen Motorcycle Club have been convicted in a racketeering and drug distribution case, the second such trial in a case with 91 defendants.
  
The U.S. attorney’s office says those convicted Wednesday are 40-year-old Leonard Moore, 46-year-old Johnny Jarrell, 39-year-old Robert Flowers and 41-year-old Sean Donovan.
  
The Detroit trial lasted a month. In June, a federal jury convicted six others Highwaymen members on a variety of charges.
  
Prosecutors say the Highwaymen are a violent gang involved in drugs, armed robbery and other crimes.
