"Tommy Shots" Gioeli Hit With 18 Years for Conspiracy Raps

Tommy Shots went down fighting
Former Colombo acting boss Thomas “Tommy Shots” Gioeli was sentenced in Brooklyn federal court yesterday to 18 years in prison for racketeering and murder conspiracy raps.

It's tantamount to life in prison, as Gioeli is 62 (though he looks more like 82) and apparently of ill health.

In a split verdict that stunned many trial watchers, Gioeli was acquitted in 2012 of several murders that could have sent them away for life -- among them the 1997 hit on NYPD cop Ralph Dols, who married the ex-wife of Joel “Joe Waverly” Cacace, a former Colombo consigliere. The two also cleared of the 1999 slaying of Colombo underboss William “Wild Bill” Cutolo, and the 1995 execution of Colombo associate Richard Greaves.

But Gioeli was convicted of plotting the murders of Frank Marasa and John Minerva and was also found guilty of crimes committed on his quest to win power.

His attorney, Adam Perlmutter, noting the gangster's age and health condition, read excerpts from letters of support for Gioeli that presented him as more of a cuddly grandfather and community pillar than a vicious don.



“The defendant had every opportunity to lead a law abiding life,” said Assistant US Attorney James Gatta.

The New York Post described Gioeli as "Looking like an ailing biker gang leader with a long gray goatee and shaved head..." Also, before being sentenced: "Gioeli animatedly waved and smiled at his family member in the court gallery...

"Seated in a wheelchair, Gioeli had little reaction to the judge’s ruling and focused on blowing kisses to his family before being wheeled back into custody."

In the end, he must be asking himself, was the blog worth it...
