Genovese Associate Gets 15 Months

Alleged Genovese associate Thomas Milo was sentenced today for his role in trash czar James Galante's plot to control the carting industry in Connecticut through a so-called "property rights" scheme which included the use of mob muscle to quash competitition and inflate rates as reported by Dirk Perrefort for the Danbury News Times:
The man who federal investigators claim was trash czar James Galante's "silent partner" was sentenced Tuesday to 15 months in prison. Thomas Milo, 72, of Mamaroneck, N.Y., was sentenced to the prison term and ordered to pay $40,000 in fines, according to Tom Carson, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office. Milo and his wife have also agreed to forfeit their ownership in Automated Waste Disposal and related companies valued at about $5 million, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Last year "Milo acknowledged that he and other defendants involved in the conspiracy paid a 'mob tax' of approximately $120,000 per year to Matthew 'Matty the Horse' Ianniello, a New York man associated with the Genovese family."  Ianniello was sentenced to 24 months in prison in May 2007 on racketeering and tax charges, and released from prison last April.
