William D. Cammisano Jr. pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to running an illegal gambling business. Cammisano, 60, is the son of mobster William “Willie the Rat” Cammisano.

Cammisano agreed to hand over $60,368 to the government, his share of the profits from the wagers. Federal agents seized the cash during a March 31, 2009, search of Cammisano’s home in Harrisonville.

Cammisano copped to running “an illegal sports bookmaking business”

from March 1, 2006 to March 31, 2009. Prosecutors say Cammisano took

bets from multiple bettors in the Kansas City metro area. Those bettors

wagered more than $1,137,632 during the course of the operation.

Bookmakers received a cut of the winnings after each sports season.
