Hartford Pizzeria Owner Sentenced in Gambino-Tied Sports Betting Ring

A U.S. District Judge, Vanessa Bryant, has sentenced Domenico Manchisi, 65, to six months behind bars for his role in operating a Gambino-run gambling business.

Federal prosecutors said the Connecticut man’s role involved picking up cash from the Gambino operation in New Haven and delivering it to another operative in Stamford. The FBI recorded conversations between Manchisi and others with ties to the organization.  An FBI analysis determined that the operation took in $1.7 million from October, 2010 to June, 2011.

Manchisi and 19 others were charged with running a Costa Rica-based online sportsbook 44wager.com, which has since been taken offline.
