The business, which also conducted unlicensed check cashing, netted $9 million.  The loan sharking arm took in $4.7 million in interest.

"When those involved in traditional organized crime engage in schemes such as loansharking and illegal gambling, they profit at the expense of victims who are struggling with debt, gambling problems, and other issues," Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said.. "By prosecuting the men who ran these schemes and putting key defendants behind bars, we send a message that we will not tolerate these corrosive criminal activities that harm individuals, families and society as a whole."

The following six individuals were sentenced:

Domenick Pucillo, 61, of Florham Park, N.J., was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to first-degree conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Robert Spagnola, 72, of Morganville, N.J., was sentenced to five years in prison. He pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal usury.
