Last June Bonanno capo Vincent Asaro pleaded guilty for torching a car which had cut him off in Queens traffic back in 2012, and now he's been sentenced to eight years behind bars which the 82-year-old mobster is calling a "death sentence" as reported by the Daily News:
"I have no illusions that Mr. Asaro will be rehabilitated by a prison stint," said Judge Allyne Ross. "If he had not aged out of a life of crime at the age of 77, I have little hope that he will do so," Ross said.
Indeed, after Asaro's March 2017 arrest for the 2012 arson, he allegedly plotted to whack the prosecutor on the case which prompted Judge Ross to aptly note "just how volatile, dangerous and violent the defendant remains" as reported by the Daily News.
In 2015 Asaro was acquitted on racketeering charges which accused him of a role in the legendary 1978 Lufthansa heist at Kennedy Airport and the 1969 rubout of suspected rat Paul Katz.
Looks like justice finally caught up to old Vincent.
