Motorcycle gang member convicted of attempted sexual battery

State Attorney Bill Eddins announced yesterday that Joseph Borg was convicted by an Escambia County Jury of one count of Attempted Sexual Battery.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred at the clubhouse of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang on Jackson Street in Brownsville. A surveillance video showed Borg and the victim entering the clubhouse on the night of the incident. A short time later it showed the victim running out partially dressed and being chased by Borg. The victim was able to find help and was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital. Borg was arrested the same night.

Both Borg and the victim were bloodied, bruised and scratched up from the attack. The victim was ultimately able to free herself after she struck Borg in the head with a spur from her boot. A search of the clubhouse found blood splatter in the upstairs sitting area. DNA testing showed there was blood from both Borg and the victim.

Judge Linda Nobles ordered a Presentence Investigation into the background of the defendant. Therefore, sentencing will be scheduled at a later date. Borg, a member of the Black Piston’s Motorcycle Gang, will face up to five years in state prison when he is sentenced by Circuit Judge Linda Nobles.
