Jury Deadlocked on Ligambi But Three Found Guilty

Uncle Joe, right, and Skinny Joe.




From Big Trial Blog:  The jury in the racketeering trial of mob boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi delivered a split verdict today leaving courtroom observers and attorneys scrambling to make sense of a mixed bag of predominantly not guilty and undecided pronouncements.

Three defendants were convicted of racketeering conspiracy, the most serious charge in the 52-count indictment, by the jury which deliberated a staggering 21 days before declaring that it could go no further.

One defendant was acquitted and the jury announced that it was hopelessly deadlock on the conspiracy charge against Ligambi and two others.

The only other guilty verdicts were two counts of loansharking conspiracy against Anthony Staino, a top Ligambi associate.

  1. Jesus Christ just let these guys go already. The most the prosecution has is some illegal gambling and loan sharking, BIG FREAKING WHOOP!! This is nothing more than glorified federal jackasses that are trying to make a name for themselves by blindly trying to convict members of the all powerful "mob"...pretty pathetic....
