New Jersey Sentences Men for Sportsbetting Ring

3 men in New Jersey have been sentenced for their roles in running an online sportsbetting site that was dubbed Bet Eagle.

Michael O'Donnell was sentenced to 21 months in prison for his role in the ring, which was reportedly tied to the Genovese crime family as well as the LaScala Crew. Joseph Graziano is due for sentencing next week, while Dominick Barone has already been sentenced to 18 months in jeail.

A US indictment from 2013 named 13 men in the case, but the group being sentenced is accused of being most heavily involved in the ring, which ran out of Costa Rica and New Jersey. After being charged, all three men plead guilty to their crimes.
