The ringleader of a gang of active and retired cops pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to transport illegal guns, cigarettes and slot machines across state lines, reports the New York Daily News.

Disgraced NYPD officer William Masso, 48, pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court in exchange for a prison sentence that could put him behind bars for five to six years when he is sentenced June 15.

He also agreed to forfeit $50,000 in illicit proceeds. Masso was one of eight current and former cops arrested, along with four others, after a two-year FBI sting.
