(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The bookkeeper for rap moguls Irving and Christopher Lorenzo was sentenced to two years probation and six months of house arrest for improperly structuring bank deposits to get around currency regulations.
Cynthia Brent, 37, who is about eight months pregnant, told Brooklyn federal Judge Edward Korman that her next job was to be that of a mother, according to New York Newsday. She pleaded guilty earlier in the year to charges that she structured bank deposits for Murder Inc. to avoid having to file currency transaction reports.
Attorneys for Brent argued that the money she handled was the proceeds of rap concerts and not the fruits of any crimes.
The Lorenzo brothers, who went by the nickname “Gotti,” were acquitted last month of charges they laundered the drug proceeds of Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. The brothers denied handling any drug cash and said they were involved in legitimate business and film deals with McGriff.
Christopher Lorenzo was in court for Brents trial and told the paper that he was pleased with the outcome.
