Lorenzo Giordano of the Montreal Mafia Sentenced to Prison in the Operation Colisee Case

A prominent member of the Montreal Mafia has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Lorenzo Giordano, 45, pleaded guilty in the past to charges of gangsterism, conspiracy and living off the profits of crime.

He was involved in helping to import hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into Canada.

Time spent behind bars before sentencing usually counts double, but the Crown agreed to allow it to count for triple in Giordano's case because he will be in isolation.

That means Giordano has about 10 years left in the 15-year sentence.

Giordano was arrested in Toronto in May 2007 as part of Operation Colisee, a widespread crackdown on the Mafia.
