Attorney Sentenced for Laundering Mafia Money

A disbarred South Florida attorney will spend time behind bars for his role in laundering money and other schemes orchestrated by a local mafia crew affiliated with New York's Bonanno crime family.

Kenneth Dunn of Boca Raton was sentenced Friday in Fort Lauderdale federal court to 43 months in prison. He had faced up to 57 months in prison.

Dunn acted as the crew's legal advisor. He told a federal judge that his drug habit clouded his judgment. He admitted he became entangled with organized crime two years ago, conspiring to forge checks, launder money and sell off documents that contained people's personal information, including their Social Security numbers.

FBI agents arrested Dunn and 10 other people from Broward and Palm Beach counties last May.
