    Four reputed mobsters convicted at Chicago's biggest organized crime trial in years were ordered Monday to pay more than $24 million -- including millions of dollars in restitution to the families of murder victims.

    U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel presided over the Operation Family Secrets trial in September 2007. The judge on Monday ordered forfeitures totaling $20,258,556 and restitution totaling $4,422,572.

    The heaviest payments were imposed on reputed mobsters Frank Calabrese Sr., Joseph "Joey the Clown" Lombardo, James Marcello and Paul Schiro. Former policeman Anthony Doyle, also convicted at the trial, was ordered to pay lesser amounts.
