Small Chicago mobster sentenced for illegal gambling

 Dennis Johnson, 37, was sentenced today to 6 months in federal prison for his part in an illegal gambling ring in Chicago. Johnson pleaded guilty to being a route man for M&M Amusement Inc., a company that converted regular video games to gambling devices and placed them in local bars at the direction of alleged mob boss James Marcello and his brother, Michael. U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel handed the 6-month sentence, the minimum allowed, after noting the progress Johnson made since pleading guilty last year. Since the gambling gofer was just a small fish, the prosecutors did not press for higher sentence.
