JUDGE'S PUNISHMENT OF "CODFATHER" NETS MILLIONS IN ASSETS

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered convicted New Bedford fishing magnate Carlos "The Codfather" Rafael to forfeit four fishing vessels and 34 associated permits worth an estimates $2.25 million that environmental groups would like to see used to assist the South Coast fishing community.

Rafael pled guilty in March to a host of charges, including falsifying fish quotas, bulk cash smuggling and tax evasion. He was sentenced last month by Judge William Young to 46 months in prison and a $200,000 fine.
