NEWARK, N.J. – 73-year-old Charles Stango, who is a member of the New Jersey crime family and a suspect of the creator of model for HBO’s “The Sopranos,” is in prison for making a plan for murdering an organized crime rival.

He pleaded no contest in the month of December for using a telephone to make the murder plan, but the plan was not followed.

On Tuesday, he was sentenced to spend a decade in prison.

Back in 2015, he was taken into custody along with other members of the DeCavalcante crime family and they were charged for multiple offenses.

He also admitted violating the terms of his parole linked to a New York racketeering case.

6 members of the family, including his son, have pleaded guilty to multiple charges.
