Goodfellas star Tony Darrow has been sentenced to six months house arrest after pleading guilty to arranging a real-life mob beating.
In February , Darrow, who also starred in several episodes of TV gangster series The Sopranos, admitted orchestrating an attack on an unidentified debtor, who was savagely beaten by two thugs linked to New York’s Gambino crime family.

He was back in court to receive his punishment on Wednesday, and a judge at Brooklyn Federal Court in New York ordered Darrow – real name Anthony Borgese – to spend six months under house arrest for the crime.

Darrow, 73, was also handed two years probation and 250 hours of “non-physically taxing” community service.

The actor was given a lighter sentence after he made a video warning young people to stay away from gang crime.
