MONTREAL - A former Hells Angels boss already serving a life sentence in the death of two Quebec prison guards has been given a 10-year prison term for conspiring to kill another underworld figure.
Quebec Superior Court Justice Eric Downs handed down Maurice (Mom) Boucher's sentence Friday.
The plot to murder Raynald Desjardins, a leading Mafia boss, was hatched from jail where Boucher has been since his 2002 conviction for ordering the assassination of the prison guards and the attempted slaying of another.
Boucher pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge last month.
Meanwhile, Boucher's daughter, Alexandra Mongeau, was sentenced to 21 months to be served in the community, including six months house arrest and other conditions, after pleading guilty to being in possession of proceeds of crime.
She was acquitted of a murder conspiracy charge after the Crown elected to not present any evidence.
Desjardins is also currently jailed after being sentenced for conspiracy in the slaying of Mob boss Salvatore Montagna in 2011.
