Son of alleged KC mob boss sentenced to prison

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

A son of an alleged organized crime leader in Kansas City has been sentenced to 21 months in federal prison.

Nicholas A. Civella, 59, was sentenced Wednesday for being a drug user in possession of a firearm.

The Kansas City Star reports that the charge stemmed from the February 2012 police search of Civella's home. Court documents say officers discovered a 9mm handgun, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities said Civella's father, Anthony Civella, had been an organized-crime leader before his 2006 death. Anthony Civella was the son of Carl Civella and nephew of Nick Civella. The Star reported that authorities long alleged that the two men were Kansas City mob leaders.
