Providence-Based Mob Associate Cops to Guilty Plea

Iafrate, 70, copped to a plea agreement.
Accused mob associate Thomas Iafrate has pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy in exchange for a recommendation of a lighter sentence from federal prosecutors, reports WPRI.com.

Iafrate, 70, of Johnston, is the first of four local defendants swept up in a nationwide crackdown into organized crime to cave under the pressure of evidence. He's accused of helping reputed former mob boss Luigi 'Baby Shacks' Manocchio shakedown are strip clubs for protection money.


Dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, Iafrate appeared relaxed before pleading guilty to one of three counts. The seven-page plea agreement unsealed earlier this month, reveals prosecutors will move to dismiss two other counts - extortion and extortion conspiracy – in exchange for the deal.
