Accused South Philly Mobster Gaeton Lucibello Withdraws From Racketeering Deal
George Anastasia, the Philadelphia Inquirer's veteran organized crime reporter reports that accused South Philadelphia mob member Gaeton Lucibello has withdrawn from a racketeering deal with prosecutors.
The deal was signed, but it wasn't sealed or delivered.
In a surprise move Tuesday, mobster Gaeton Lucibello withdrew his guilty plea to racketeering charges, rejecting a government plea deal that called for a 63-month sentence in the case.
During a brief hearing before Judge Eduardo Robreno, Lucibello, 59, turned down a deal he had signed off on earlier this month.
The signed plea agreement was the basis for Tuesday's hearing. Lucibello is one of a dozen reputed mob figures charged in an indictment handed up in May.
Reputed mob boss Joseph Ligambi, underboss Joseph "Mousie" Massimino, and several other mob soldiers are also defendants in the case.
