Cigars cost man 3 years in prison

A lawyer was sentenced Wednesday to more than three years in federal prison for smuggling thousands of fine Cuban cigars into this country and selling them for a fat profit.
Richard “Mick” Connors, 54, was also fined $60,000 and placed on three years’ probation.
U.S. District Judge Ronald A. Guzman ordered Connors taken into custody immediately, despite a request that he be allowed to attend his daughter’s wedding later this month. The judge said the former public defender is too familiar with ways to flee the country.
