NEW YORK (AP) - A 71-year-old Mafia member has been sentenced to 21 months in prison in a debt-collection case.

Thomas DiFiore, described as a “street boss” for the Bonanno crime family, was sentenced Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court.

The New York Times (https://nyti.ms/1Iryj8h ) says DiFiore will be released in seven months. He already had served 14 months in jail since his arrest.

The defense said the defendant has numerous medical problems. The sentence was within the range sought by prosecutors.
