Son of KC mob boss sentenced for theft from ATMs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The son of a former Kansas City mob boss has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for stealing more than $330,000 from automated teller machines he was hired to maintain.

U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson says 47-year-old Anthony T. Civella Jr. of Kansas City was sentenced Tuesday and ordered to pay $70,000 in restitution on top of restitution already paid.

Civella pleaded guilty in February to bank larceny and money laundering. Prosecutors say he owned a company that serviced 35 ATMs in the Kansas City metropolitan area, and that he moved money between the machines to conceal the theft.

His father was Anthony “Tony Ripe” Civella, who died in 2006. He is the brother of Nick Civella, who is serving time in federal prison, and Carl and Vincent Civella.
