No mob connections, claims his lawyer
This week brought new development in the case of a man allegedly connected to the Gambino crime family - upon pleading guilty to the charges of racketeering in online sports betting, Michael Scarpaci (34) was found guilty by a Manhattan federal court, which sentenced him to 30 months in jail. According to the New York Post reports, Scarpaci was involved in an Internet sports betting ring and arranged high-stakes poker games.
This recovering alcoholic and drug addict already faces a five year prison sentence for heading a $20 million 'boiler room' stock selling scheme called Gryphon Financial, where he allegedly used some of the profits to fund internet gambling operations.
In the court, he admitted that he recruited players to play cards together in Manhattan hotels, and that he directed bettors to his unidentified Web-based, off-shore sports betting site. Earlier in 2010, the charges against Scarpaci were a part of a bigger indictment which involved 14 accused persons, all reportedly connected to the mob.
Apart from this, there was an interesting development in the case regarding to the defense attorney Joseph Corrozzo, for which the prosecution claimed was a 'house counsel' to the Gambinos, in which his father, Joseph, is the reputed consigliore, and his uncle Nicholas is a reputed capo. However, the attempts to remove him from the case failed.
