Spyropoulos Gets 8 Years For Plotting to Kill Diner Uncle

PATERSON, N.J. — Georgios Spyropoulos was sentenced on September 19, to eight years in prison for plotting the murder of his uncle, NBC News reported. That includes nearly seven years of ineligibility for parole under the No Early Release Act.

The former manager of a northern New Jersey diner was sentenced for what authorities say was a foiled plot to kill the co-owner of the restaurant, who is his uncle by marriage.

Georgios Spyropoulos (spee-roh-POH’-los) appeared before a judge in Paterson. The Clifton resident faced up to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder; he got most of that.

Authorities have said an informant told them that Spyropoulos was searching for a hit man to torture and kill his boss, Alexandros Sgourdos (sah-GOR’-dohs). They said Spyropoulos believed Sgourdos was withholding profits and keeping a large amount of cash in a safe.

Sgourdos co-owns the Tick Tock diners in Clifton and Manhattan.
