Two Mob Associates Go To Jail

Two more associates of the La Cosa  Nostra crime family are being sent to prison. 

Ralph Santaniello and  Giovanni Calabrese, both of Longmeadow, were sentenced yesterday in  federal court in Worcester to five years in prison and three years in  prison, respectively, on extortion-related charges after entering guilty  pleas last November. 

Santaniello and Calabrese were accused of engaging  in various criminal activities in Springfield,  such as illegal gambling businesses and the collection of unlawful  debts. 

One other mob associate was sentenced last month, while two more  sentences are pending.
