Mob associate receives 33 month prison sentence

Mob associate Louis Barretta was sentenced to 33 months in prison today after admitting his role in an organized crime gambling and loan sharking operation.
Barretta, 48, had pleaded guilty in September. He was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Eduardo Robreno following a brief hearing this morning.
Barretta, of Philadelphia, was indicted last year along with acting mob boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi and 12 others. He is the third defendant to plead guilty and be sentenced.
Mob capo Martin Angelina was sentenced to 57 months in prison and mob soldier Gaeton Lucibello was sentenced to 51 months at earlier hearings before Robreno.
Ligambi and seven others are scheduled to be tried on racketeering charges later this month. Jury selection begins on Oct. 9. The trial is expected to last eight to 12 weeks.
