Alleged Genovese Capo Anthony “Tony D” Palumbo (59) leaves the Federal Building in New York on the way to court.

Anthony “Tony D” Palumbo, a former crew leader in  the Genovese organized-crime family in New York, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for agreeing to murder a Russian professional killer.

Palumbo, 62, pleaded guilty in August to charges of conspiracy to commit murder in aid of a racketeering enterprise. U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell in New York sentenced him today to the statutory maximum for the crime, rejecting arguments by defense attorney Steven K. Frankel that his client deserved less time because the conspiracy took place almost 20 years ago and didn’t culminate in a murder.
