Longtime Genovese Family Captain Sentenced To 9 Years For Illegal Gambling Club

Longtime Genovese mobster Anthony Antico was sentenced Wednesday to nine years for racketeering and running an illegal gambling club on Staten Island while he was in prison.
The sentence was particulary heavy considering that Antico, 74, was acquitted by a Brooklyn jury of the most serious charge of ordering the fatal robbery of mobbed-up jeweler Louis Antonelli in 2008.
But Federal Judge Carol Amon ruled that the testimony of snitch Salvatore (Sally Fish) Maniscalco tying Antico to the heist was credible and should be factored in the sentence.
