Ponzo, Who Lammed It in Idaho, Gets 28 Years

According to KBOI 2: "A Boston mob associate who spent years on the lam in Idaho as a cattle rancher has been sentenced to 28 years in prison.

Enrico Ponzo was convicted in November of several federal crimes including the 1989 attempted killing of Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme, who later became the boss of the New England Mafia. Ponzo fled Massachusetts in 1994.

The 45-year-old Ponzo pleaded with Judge Nathaniel Gorton on Monday to sentence him to no more than 15 years, saying he had turned his life around while living in Idaho."
