"East Coast LCN Enterprise" Mobsters Consider Plea Deals

Most defendants charged in the East Coast LCN Enterprise indictment were offered extra-sweet plea deals last Tuesday thanks to revelations about a whacky turncoat and alleged criminality of one of the FBI's mob squads.

Skinny Joey: "You want me to pay how much?
I'd rather go to jail...."
Indicted last August were 46 alleged members and associates of four of New York's Five Families, and the alleged boss of the Philadelphia crime family in Florida. (John Gotti's grandson was busted on the same day; who'd have believed of the two busts, Gotti's would ultimately be the more consequential.)

Around 10 of the defendants apparently voiced intent to reject the offer. Additionally, the two "bosses" with the biggest reasons to cop deals are supposedly still mulling the prospect of going to trial.

Court Rules No Dice: Alleged Colombo Boss's 100-Year Prison Sentence Stands

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has made its ruling, and the 100-year sentence will stand.

Carmine Persico, 83, alleged boss of the Colombo crime family, will continue serving the long and unusually punishing prison sentence doled out to him in the historic Mafia Commission case.

Persico will continue to serve his 100-year sentence following Commission Case
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals screwed Carmine Persico, 83.

The court ignored all the evidence based on former Bonanno boss Joseph Massino's 302s, which supported the allegation that Carmine Galante was not slain as per the orders of the Mafia Commission (the murder was the Commission Case's centerpiece). The court also ignored all the evidence that showed the large, previously unknown extent of former Colombo captain/high-ranking snitch Gregory Scarpa's influence over the case.

Rizzuto Family-Linked Funeral Parlor Burned

A funeral home with known links to the Rizzuto family was hit by an arson attack yesterday.

No one was injured, and the damage to the Loreto Funeral Complex on Grandes Prairies Blvd., in St-LĂ©onard, Montreal, appears to be minimal.

A gasoline can was discovered behind the building. Such an open attack would've been unthinkable only a few short years ago.
