A member of the Bonanno crime family is looking at spending seven years behind bars after being busted back in 2013 for running an illegal gambling and extortion ring, prosecutors announced this past week.

Vito Badamo, 54, was also charged with peddling drugs like Viagra and Cialis and running loansharking rackets.

Badamo, who resided in Brooklyn, pleaded guilty to attempted enterprise corruption in the case as a means of avoiding trial.

Charges are still pending against his alleged former boss, Nicholas (Nicky Cigars) Santora, 74.
