Join retired FBI agent and author, William Ouseley, for Bringing Down the Mob – the latest installment in Lawrence Presbyterian Manor's Just Ask lifelong learning series. A light lunch will be provided.
William Ouseley spent more than 20 years working against the Civella crime family with the organized crime squad in the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office. He would eventually serve as supervisor on the Operation Strawman case. This case, popularized by the 1995 film CASINO, involved the Mob infiltration of the Nevada gaming industry which resulted in the illegal “skimming” of millions of dollars from a number of Las Vegas casinos.
You’ll learn all about the Operation Strawman case and its Kansas City connection. Space is limited. RSVP by Tuesday, March 17, to Curtis Jones at 785-841-4262 or [email protected]
