New England mob associate sentenced to 7 years in prison

Mob associate Albino Folcarelli was sentenced Thursday morning to seven years in federal prison for participating in the extortion of $25,000 from an employee at a Johnston auto body shop.
U.S. District Court Judge William E. Smith decided to give Folcarelli, 54, a break because he did not feel that the career criminal deserved a stiffer sentence than six other mobsters and mob associates who were indicted with him last year.
Sam G. Nazzaro, a federal prosecutor assigned to organized crime cases in Washington, D.C., asked Smith to sentence Folcarelli to 110 months in prison. Smith said that he was not comfortable imposing a penalty that was harsher than the 108 months he gave to Edward Lato, a capo regime in the New England mob.
