PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Patriarca capo, Mobster Anthony M. “The Saint” St. Laurent Sr. was sentenced to 7 years in federal prison Wednesday for trying to hire someone to kill his mob rival in La Cosa Nostra  Robert. P. DeLuca.

U.S. District Judge William E. Smith said that he will recommend that St. Laurent serve time at a different prison medical facility than the one where he’s been serving a sentence on a separate conviction. St. Laurent was also sentenced to serve three years of supervised release after prison.

Smith said that St. Laurent has already served about one year of time while the murder-for-hire case was proceeding through the court system.

According to the prosecution, St. Laurent Sr., 70, was a made member of the Patriarca crime family of New England and tried to solicit the killing, offering money to a Taunton, Mass., man in 2006, because DeLuca had accused St. Laurent of being a government informant. No killing was carried out.

St. Laurent has been serving a sentence at the Federal Medical Center at Fort Devens, Mass., for a separate conviction of running an extortion ring.

St. Laurent has suffered from various ailments in recent years and has appeared in the courtroom and by video-conferencing in a wheelchair.
