      A member of the white supremacist
      <http://www.apologeticsindex.org/w11.html> gang Public Enemy Number One
      was convicted Monday of conspiracy to commit murder in the 2002
      execution-style killing of a gang founder who had disclosed the
      organization's secrets on a television news program.

      Michael Lamb also was found guilty of possessing a firearm used in the
      attempted shooting of an Anaheim police officer. The officer was
      investigating a report of a stolen car in the days after gang member
      Scott Miller was found dead in an Anaheim alley with a single gunshot
      wound to the back of his head.

      Lamb's co-defendant, Jacob Rump, was also convicted of the firearm charge.

      The partial verdict was read in Orange County Superior Court shortly
      after a juror, backed by a doctor's note, informed the court he was too
      ill to continue deliberating.

      Juror No. 7 was excused on the sixth day of deliberations. With an
      alternate replacing him, the jury will start from scratch in deciding on
      a number of more serious counts against Lamb and Rump, including the
      first-degree murder charge against both men.

      Lamb, the alleged triggerman in Miller's slaying, faces up to life in
      prison if convicted of conspiracy. He could face the death penalty if
      convicted of murder.

      His attorney, Marlin Stapleton, said the partial verdict was a sign that
      the jury was "obviously not sure" his client killed Miller.

      "Who knows what will happen now that Juror No. 7 is gone?" Stapleton
      said outside the courtroom. "I don't know if he was the one hanging up
      the jury."

      Deputy Dist. Atty. Ebrahim Baytieh, the lead prosecutor, declined to
      comment until the completion of all proceedings in the case.

      Miller, 38, was killed in March 2002, about a year after he appeared on
      Fox News in Los Angeles talking about the gang he helped form.

      Lamb and Rump, both of Huntington Beach, were taken into custody three
      days later after a police chase that ended with Lamb allegedly shooting
      at --- and missing --- an Anaheim police officer who was one of his

      Tests showed that the gun was the same weapon used to kill Miller.

      According to authorities and testimony during the monthlong trial,
      Miller helped found Public Enemy Number One in the Long Beach area in
      the 1980s. The gang, which seeks to "secure the existence of our people
      and a future for white children," has since spread to Orange County and
      the Inland Empire.

      *With an estimated 300 members across Southern California, the group's
      operations allegedly include drug dealing, identity thefts, forgeries
      and counterfeiting.*
