'Ndrangheta trial winds down

An Italian tribunal convicted 207 and sentenced them to a combined 2,100 years in prison on charges related to their membership in Italy's 'Ndrangheta. 131 others were acquitted. Boss Luigi Mancuso served 19 years in an Italian prison for his role in leading one of the 'ndrangheta's most powerful crime families, based in the town of Vibo Valentia. Awash in cocaine cash, the 'Ndrangheta has bought hotels, restaurants, pharmacies, car dealerships and other businesses throughout Italy, especially in Rome and the country's north.
