Luchese Capo Avellino Out on $1M Bail

Luchese capo Carmine Avellino, 70, was let out on $1 million bail.

He departed Brooklyn Federal Court even though Federal prosecutors first argued that the mobster should be detained, but Assistant U.S. Attorney Celia Cohen consented to his release after another Avellino daughter posted her $1 million home as bail, according to the New York Daily News.

Salvatore's brother, Carmine Avellino, last week had been held without bail after his arraignment in federal court in Brooklyn. Avellino hadn't had enough time to prepare a bail application, his defense attorney said, so Magistrate Judge Joan Azrack ordered him detained until a bail hearing yesterday.

He faces a two-count indictment charging him with involvement in a scheme to extort repayment of a $100,000 loan from a victim in 2010.



He sent two Luchese thugs to beat up a man about the same age as Avellino himself.

Avellino's brother Salvatore was known for driving the famous Jaguar in which the late Luchese boss Anthony "Tony Ducks" Corallo held court. The Feds bugged the car and used the tapes in the historic "Mafia Commission Case."
