OFF THE WIRE
Francis Boucher, the son of notorious Hells Angels leader Maurice (Mom) Boucher, is back behind bars after he is alleged to have violated his statutory release on a 10-year prison sentence.
The younger Boucher, known by the nickname Le Fils when he was part of a Hells Angels underling gang, was sentenced in 2002 after pleading guilty to charges filed from Operation Springtime 2001, a major police investigation into the biker gang's Nomad chapter in Montreal.
Boucher, 36, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, drug trafficking and participation in a criminal organization.
The charges involved crimes committed during a bloody conflict between the Hells Angels and other organized crime groups in Quebec from 1994 to 2002.
Boucher was able to leave a federal penitentiary in 2009, after he reached the twothirds mark of his sentence.
The Gazette has learned that he was returned to a penitentiary in Laval this year and is scheduled to have a hearing before the Parole Board of Canada in December.
The board is to decide whether to revoke his statutory release officially.
His release is believed to have been suspended when Boucher was arrested and charged on Aug. 31 in Joliette with harassment of, and threatening to kill or cause bodily harm to, a woman.
According to court records, he has been detained since his arrest by Repentigny police. His next court date in that case is scheduled for Nov. 16.
Maurice (Mom) Boucher is serving three life sentences for orchestrating the murders of two prison guards and the attempted murder of another.
