Men plead not guilty to racketeering
June 2, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Two men pleaded not guilty to federal racketeering charges in a case that is linked to organized crime.
Samuel Volpendesto, 85, and 41-year old Mark Polchan have been in federal custody for more than a year.
They are charged in connection with a bombing in February 2003 that destroyed a Berwyn video gaming company.
Prosecutors say the blast was a warning to the company to stop cutting in on the video gaming business that is controlled by organized crime.
