85-year-old charged along with Casey Urlacher in sports gambling ring gets home detention – Chicago Sun-Times


A federal judge Monday gave three months of home detention to an 85-year-old man caught up in a sports gambling prosecution that led to the indictment earlier this year of the brother of Chicago Bears great Brian Urlacher.

Eugene “Gino” DelGiuidice pleaded guilty in July to conspiring to conduct an illegal gambling business, becoming the first of the 10 people charged in the case last February to be convicted. Among those charged is Casey Urlacher, mayor of north suburban Mettawa.

Vincent “Uncle Mick” DelGiudice, Eugene DelGiudice’s son, is set to plead guilty next week, court records show. Also charged in the case are Matthew “Sweaters” Knight of Mokena, Justin Hines of Algonquin, Keith D. Benson of Lemont, Todd Blanken of Cary, Nicholas Stella of Chicago, Matthew Namoff of Midlothian and Vasilios Prassas of Chicago.
