Closing arguments are expected today in the federal racketeering trial of accused Central City crime leader Telly Hankton.

The trial has stretched almost the entire month.

Investigators say Hankton is the ringleader of a deep-rooted crime organization that operated in the Uptown and Central City areas for 20 years.

Hankton is already serving a life sentence for a state murder conviction.
