Anthony "Bingy" Arillotta received just 99 months for his mob crimes, including his role in the 2003 hit on Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno who ran the Genovese rackets in Springfield, MA, after federal prosecutors lauded "him as one of the best Mafia informants ever" as reported by Stephanie Barry for The Republican:
Under a plea deal, he testified in two trials against his former cohorts and bosses, sending two of the cohorts to prison for life as well as the onetime acting boss of the New York-based crime syndicate, Arthur "Artie" Nigro. He also helped send former Longmeadow loan shark Emilio Fusco to prison for 25 years after a trial in 2012.
With credit for time served 47-year-0ld Bingy will be a free man in four years.
Meanwhile, Big Al's son Victor Bruno has filed a wrongful death civil action against Arillotta for his father's murder as reported by Buffy Spence for The Republican.
