Snitch Inside Gotti Grandson's New Federal Indictment

John Gotti's grandson and namesake, 23, thought he was en route to an eight-year prison sentence at a correctional facility in Fishkill, New York.

Instead, he was brought to Brooklyn Federal court where he, along with Bonanno mobster Vincent Asaro, 82, and five alleged Mafia associates faced a new indictment on arson and bank burglary charges.

 he wasn't there to make a deposit.

If everything is what it seems, this is going to be a difficult case for the young Gotti. Apparently, the Feds have a snitch.

All defendants pleaded not guilty.

The indictment depicts the grandson of the former boss of the Gambino crime family as an associate of the Bonanno crime family. An intriguing premise, though not necessarily accurate.

John Gotti at His Rhetorical Greatest

"This is stupidity from down the line... I can't even identify two people in the indictment -- uh, uh, the Sea Monster, Sigmund the Sea Monster. I'm not away 100 years. I'm only away seven years. Where do these creatures emerge from?"

"All I know is one thing. I don't think I'll ever find myself in a position where I'll put my wedding money, 380 thous ... whatever it is, in the basement near a broken safe, with a bunch of old jewelry."

The Scores case revealed John J. Gotti at his rhetorical greatest.

Scores Excerpt: Mafia for Dummies

EARLY 1991 

Mike Sergio invited me to dinner at his restaurant. I was tickled when I arrived because “Grampa” Al Lewis was dining with us that night, and he’d invited Fred Gwynne, the famous Herman Munster himself, for the meal. Just pleased to be a fly on the wall, I listened with interest to these veteran actors discussing their memories from and their roles in the 50s television hit Car 54 Where Are You?—along with Lewis’s plans for a Munster-esque Halloween reunion bash that would include Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster), but not Yvonne De Carlo (Lily Munster) because her ballooning weight was causing her to avoid public appearances.
