South Philly Mob Informer Sent Back To Jail For Stalking Girlfriend

John P. Martin at the Philadelphia Inquirer reports on former Philadelphia organized crime figure-turned informant Roger Vella Jr. being sent back behind bars for stalking his former girlfriend.

Relationships are tricky, but some rules of dating go unsaid.

Don't wait to tell your new girlfriend that you're a mob informer who spent 12 years in prison for murder and racketeering. And never, ever threaten to smash her head with a hammer.

Roger Vella Jr. failed on both counts. First he lost the girl, then his freedom.

Vella, whose cooperation against the Philadelphia branch of La Cosa Nostra was once hailed as "remarkable" by a prosecutor, was sent back to prison last week after stalking the ex-girlfriend and failing to get permission to travel.

U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell revoked his probation and sentenced him to eight months in prison, to be followed by 38 months of supervised release, court records show.

  1. If he was SMART which we all know that he definitely isnt.He would STAY in jail. He has more people looking for him than HOFFA was ever looked for through out the years. But I'm sure Scumbags body parts will be DISCOVERED
