Cicalo Pleads Gulity for Gambling Promotion

Staten Island bookie to pay $1.3 Million in exchange for imprisonment

Charles Cicalo (49), a Staten Island bookie, pleaded guilty to first-degree promoting gambling and agreed to pay $1.3 Million in exchange for a one to three year prison sentence as opposed to the possible 25-year sentence, reported Richard A. Brown, Queens District Attorney .

Illicit multi-state bets placed at two sports gambling websites crownsports and jazzsports allegedly earned Cicolo $2.7 million.

Cicolo was busted in April 2010 together with 25 other affiliates including fire-fighter Matthew Fopeano, sanitation worker Robert Ackrish and road repair worker Michael Labetti, all of whom pleaded guilty, the New York Post reports.

Michael Flynn III, one of Cicalo's "super agents", and David Carazo, a money collector, are still at large.
