NEW YORK (Reuters) - An affiliate of financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald has agreed to pay $16.5 million to resolve a criminal investigation into its past involvement with illegal gambling and money laundering schemes, U.S. prosecutors said on Monday.

The non-prosecution agreement announced with CG Technology LP, formerly known as Cantor Gaming, came three years after a former senior executive at the company pleaded guilty to conspiring to participate in an illegal gambling business.
