The pleas to charges of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act allow the court to sentence them as if they were guilty, the Indianapolis Star reported Tuesday.
In her ruling, Judge Tanya Walton-Pratt said accepting the no contest pleas by James Bolinger and Joshua Bowser, the club's "enforcer," would prevent an "expensive and time-consuming trial."
Monica Foster, Bowser's public defender, said the judge's decision had saved the government "probably about $400,000 for a seven-week trial."
Prosecutors had objected to the plea arrangement.
In court documents, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brad Blackington said the no contest pleas, rather than RICO convictions, would allow defense attorneys to argue the club was not an organized crime group.
Blackington said it also would create disparate sentences for members of the group who had already pleaded guilty under the racketeering statute.
Two Outlaws members were sentenced in February. Steven Reynolds received a prison term of five years and 10 months. Kent Whittinger was sentenced to seven years and three months.
Federal agents arrested some 42 members of the biker club last year.
