Kingsmen Motorcycle Club member gets prison in Springville shooting

A 2013 drive-by shooting at the Springville chapter of the Kingsmen Motorcycle Club is sending one of its members to prison.

Thomas Koszuta, who also took part in a second confrontation in Springville, was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford to 57 months in prison.

As part of a plea deal, Koszuta admitted striking a Springville member in the head with a blunt object and forcibly shutting down the clubhouse in the summer of 2013. He also took part in the drive-by shooting a few months later.

Another Kingsmen, Robert Osborne, a former vice president, was sentenced to time served and probation for his role in destroying videotapes of Andre Jenkins in the Kingsmen's North Tonawanda Clubhouse in the days before and after the murders of Kingsmen Paul Maue and Daniel "DJ" Szymanski. Jenkins is currently serving three life sentences for the double murder.

The sentences are the result of an FBI Safe Streets Task Force investigation and a prosecution by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Tripi and Brendan T. Cullinane.
