LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Former limousine company owner Charles Horky was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison Wednesday for his role in a multimillion-dollar racketeering conspiracy involving fraud, prostitution and drug trafficking.

Horky, 55, who ran CLS Nevada, which operated on the Strip for two decades, pleaded guilty in December 2014 to one felony count of conspiracy to conduct or participate in an enterprise engaged in a pattern of racketeering activity.

[From LCT: Horky, whose career started and gained national industry prominence in Los Angeles, has apologized for his conduct. Since his arrest in December 2012, Horky has retained a loyal fan base among many of his peers and a strong following on social media. The longtime LCT 50 Largest Fleets operator, known for his candid advice and observations, was the subject of a lengthy feature interview in LCT Magazine in November 2006 that was nominated for a national magazine award in early 2008].

    Well, Charlie is going to get a "real mouthful" in prison for sure. Trust me when I write that ..........no one deserves it more than Charlie!!! A real creep for sure. And to see all the "other" creeps in his office and drivers go to prison makes me happy. Bottom line........if you were a honest driver back then.........you were targeted as a problem. The scamming was overwhelming. Charlie is nothing but a two bit felon. Charlie has embarrassed the entire state of Nevada. Go away where you belong Charlie. Prison!!!
