Judge imposes code of silence at wedding

A federal judge in Chicago is letting a man charged with mob-related gambling activities go to his daughter's wedding but on one condition: he can't talk with the father of the groom or he'll go to jail.

Fifty-two-year-old Casey Szaflarski is currently on house arrest.

The order issued by U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman also allows Szaflarski to attend an upcoming graduation but with another restriction -- no talking with anyone who has had anything to do with organized crime.

Guzman acted after federal prosecutors said that the groom's father was involved with the mob and that the groom himself had been convicted of a felony.

Szaflarski has pleaded not guilty to tax and gambling offenses.
