Colombo captain gets 34 months for extortion

Dennis Delucia is going away for 34 months.

A Colombo capo convicted of extortion but praised by his gay daughter for staunchly supporting same-sex marriage was sentenced to 34 months in prison — a year less than the maximum he faced.

Dennis Delucia, 71, apparently convinced Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto that he had some redeeming qualities even though she noted that a decade spent in prison did not deter him from committing new crimes.

Matsumoto referred to the “moving” letter written by daughter Donna Delucia about her “traditional Italian” father and credited the mobster’s contributions to a charity for children of female inmates.

Delucia was arrested in 2011 and with credit for good behavior could be sprung in two months.
