|Jean-Mary was convicted in 2010 for basically the same crime. On Dec. 15, 2010, he pleaded guilty to being part of a large-scale drug trafficking and drug smuggling network that involved several members of a Montreal street gang called the Syndicate, including Emmanuel Zephir, the leader of the gang. Jean-Mary was sentenced to a two-year prison term in that case.|
The first person to plead guilty in Project Magot was former Montreal defence lawyer Loris Cavaliere, 62, who pleaded guilty to gangsterism and a charge related to a firearm and was sentenced to a 34-month prison term.
|Project Magot revealed that Cavaliere acted as a bridge between the Montreal Mafia, street gangs, and the Hells Angels while they dealt cocaine. On May 2, Éric Bourgeois, 38, another of the 19 people charged in Project Magot, pleaded guilty to the same conspiracy charge as well as a count related to drug trafficking. He received an overall prison term of 27 months. Most of the other people charged in Project Magot, including Rizzuto and Sollecito, are scheduled to return to court in September.|
