Reputed Philly mobster Gaeton Lucibello was sentenced to 51 months in prison after pleading guilty "for his participation in a racketeering conspiracy involving extortion and illegal gambling" according to a press release from the Department of Justice: "he admitted to the court that he assisted in shaking down a bookmaker for 'street tax' payments and operated two illegal video poker machine businesses in furtherance of the racketeering conspiracy."
