Federal authorities in the landmark Family Secrets mob case estimate the Chicago Outfit has raked in more than $20 million from illicit activities since the 1960s.
In paperwork filed Monday in the sentencing of the first of five defendants, prosecutors are seeking the forfeiture of some of the illicit gains. Anthony "Twan" Doyle, a former Chicago police officer who was convicted of passing information to the mob, is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge James Zagel on Oct. 1.In documents filed Monday, the government estimated the Outfit made $20,258,556, to be precise, chiefly through gambling. Calling the figure "very conservative," authorities said it was compiled from all the witnesses at last summer's trial.
