Leader of robbery gang gets 62 years in prison

CHICAGO And much of the time Anthony Calabrese received in a Chicago courtroom today is mandatory because he used a gun.

Calabrese said "It isn't over until God says it's over" as marshals led him off to what could easily turn out to be the rest of his life behind bars.

Calabrese was convicted in February of masterminding the robbery of a leather store, a tattoo parlor and a meat market.

Prosecutors say -- on orders from Calabrese -- a gang member tried to break the tattoo parlor owner's hands with a hammer because he had tattooed the underage daughter of a Chicago mob boss.
