Russian Thief-in-Law Shulaya and his enforcer - 'Mini Mike Tyson' convicted

Razhden Shulaya, one of the first Thieves-in-Law to be indicted on racketeering charges in the US, and his chief enforcer, former middleweight boxing champion Avtandil Khurtsidze, were found guilty for an array of schemes including violence, extortion, theft, trafficking in stolen goods, and fraud. When a subordinate did not pay enough tribute, 'obshschak', Shulaya would call in his loyal enforcer, 'Mini Mike Tyson' Khurtsidze.
Shulaya had established an expansive criminal business empire based in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach. It included cigarette smuggling, drug trafficking, counterfeit credit card schemes, illegal gambling, and a team that hacked slot machines. The pair potentially face a combined 105 year sentence.

Other members of the Razhden Pitersky gang, Nikoloz Dzhikia and Bakai Marat-Uulu can be sentenced to life imprisonment for contract killings.
