Marty Angelina was among the baker's dozen charged last year in a racketeering indictment targeting the Philadelphia Mafia, and now the reputed mobster apparently is caving in to federal prosecutors by taking a guilty plea as reported by William Bender for the Daily News:
Angelina, 50, who is tight with Joey Merlino and was once described by a federal prosecutor as a "bully running with a gang of misfits," served six years in prison on a 2001 racketeering conviction and was jailed twice after his release for probation violations. He made headlines in 2009 for spitting on a Margate cop and pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.
Sounds like Marty has a recidivism problem which the presiding judge may wish to consider at sentencing.
UPDATE: Sure enough, Angelina pleaded guilty today in a Philadelphia federal court to a racketeeing count in which he admitted "that he operated illegal poker machines and used extortionist tactics to collect a $6,700 debt," and when sentenced on December 3 "faces about five years in prison under a plea agreement" as reported by Maryclaire Dale for The Associated Press.
