They call him Papa Smurf.

The alleged mobster, Carmine Franco, 78, will spend two to three years in prison after he was sentenced Friday to racketeering charges, the New York Daily News reports.

Franco is accused in a multi-crime-family plot to seize control of waste hauling in New York City and New Jersey between 2009 and 2012.

Franco is among 32 alleged mobsters swept up in an FBI sting involving three families.
