October 20, 2011
Longshoreman Michael Bolger and ten others have been arrested and indicted on charges of Enterprise Corruption, Promoting Gambling in the First Degree, and Conspiracy in the Fifth Degree. The charges allege that Bolger and his co-defendants operated an illegal gambling ring on behalf of the Gambino Crime Family in parts of New York and New Jersey from 2010 to 2011. Bolger has been suspended by the Commission pending an administrative hearing to determine whether his registration as a longshoreman should be revoked. The Organized Crime Task Force of the Office of the New York State Attorney General is prosecuting the case.
