Nine members of New York’s Gambino Crime family, ranging from ages from 25 to 70, were sentenced in recent days in Manhattan federal court as part of a wide sweeping indictment that included charges of racketeering, murder, conspiracy, extortion and sex trafficking, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.
“The successful prosecutions of Daniel Marino and his cronies dealt a significant blow to the Gambino Family — a ‘family’ that will stop at nothing to wield power, extract illegal profits, and exact revenge against its enemies,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. “But we are far from finished,and our goal of disrupting and dismantling organized crime throughout the City of New York and beyond its borders will continue unabated.”
Those sentenced included Daniel Marino, 70, the reputed boss of the family who “presided over” at least 200 full inducted “made” mobsters and hundreds of associates, authorities said. He was sentenced to five years and ordered to forfeit $1.25 million for conspiracy to murder his nephew, who was cooperating with law enforcement.
Marino admitted giving the green light to kill the nephew Frank Hydell, 31. In 1997, fellow mobsters lured Hydell to a strip club in Staten Island where he was shot three times in the face and back. He died in the parking lot.
