Mansion Mike, born and raised in East L.A., Outlaw Biker and family man, father of 9 children. He is a renegade, but his family always comes first. He lost his right leg in a bike accident in 1999. After coming out of the hospital, his first thought was about getting back on his bike. One year later the ATF raided his house and found machine guns. A conviction of 4 years in Federal Prison followed. During his imprisonment, not only did his wife have to raise the family alone, but his mother, who had been the head of the family, died. As a result, they lost the house that had given him his name in the past. In 2004 Mansion was released from prison. His family had to move into a 2-bedroom house. Although he suffers tremendous pain, the government does not grant him social security income. Nevertheless he stands strong and does not surrender, which made him an inspiration for many people around him. In spring 2006 the story took a turn which nobody could foresee. It shocked his friends and brought his family into another trauma.”
