9 indicted on extortion charges
A grand jury has handed up indictments of nine Chicago-area men accused of using fear and intimidation to collect debts.
The FBI in Chicago announced the indictments in a Thursday statement. But it provided few details.
The accused include 44-year-old Paul Carparelli. The FBI says the Itasca man conspired with others to collect business debts from business owners in Nevada, Wisconsin and New Jersey.
He faces one count each of conspiracy to commit extortion and attempted extortion. Each count carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence.
Carparelli remains in federal custody and is due to appear in court on Friday.
The FBI statement didn't include a name of an attorney for Carparelli. And there was no answer at a residential number for a Paul Carparelli in Itasca.
