A former Nassau judge who admitted his involvement in a mafia money laundering scheme received the minimum sentencing for his crimes.
David Gross was sentenced to 33 months behind bars for his role helping the Genovese crime family launder more than $100,000. John Carman, Gross' attorney, described the situation as a "classic fall from grace."
"He's gonna suffer the consequences for a very long time to come," said Carman.
Gross openly wept as he apologized to his family for his wrongdoings and the anguish it caused them.
Despite his conviction, Gross has not yet been disbarred. The former public servant will be able to spend the holidays with his family as his sentence does not begin until January 15.
