Jessica Andrea Gordon pleaded not guilty in Marin County Superior Court Wednesday to being an accessory to the murder, shooting from an occupied vehicle, permitting a shooting from an occupied vehicle, possession of ecstasy for sale and possession of cocaine, Marin County Deputy District Attorney Linda Witong said. Gordon is free on bail. Her co-defendant, Joseph Andrew Farnsworth, 20, of El Cerrito, has pleaded not guilty to the murder of William Crompton Maclean, 25, of San Leandro, and is being held in county jail in lieu of $2 million bail. His preliminary hearing date will be set Aug. 28. The Marin County Sheriff's Office said Farnsworth and Gordon were riding in a Dodge Durango on northbound U.S. Highway 101 around 8:15 p.m. May 24, the night of the shooting. Farnsworth, a passenger in the back seat of the Dodge, is suspected of shooting Maclean as he rode by in a Chevrolet pickup that was leading a group of Hells Angels on motorcycles who were returning from a funeral service in Daly City.
Raymond Foakes, Maclean's brother-in-law and president of the Sonoma County Chapter of the Hells Angels, pulled the Chevrolet off the highway at Paradise Drive and called the California Highway Patrol for help. Maclean was taken to Marin General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
