NEW YORK--Lewis Kasman, a principal with family-owned Albie Trimming Co., 229 West 36th St., was sentenced to six months in prison Friday for lying to a 1990 federal grand jury that was investigating John Gotti and the Gambino organized crime family.
At the sentencing, in Brooklyn Federal Court, Kasman was also handed a $30,000 fine and sentenced to some three years of supervised release once he is out of prison, with the stipulation that he not associate with any members of organized crime.
Kasman, who faced a sentence of up to five years in jail and a $250,000 fine, pleaded guilty to lying to the grand jury when he testified that he was not familiar with the terms "Gambino," "capo" or "consigliere" in April and October 1990.
According to the charges, Kasman often boasted that he was like an "adopted son" to convicted murderer and racketeer John Gotti.
