A Key Question For Mob Trial Jury As The Government Wraps Up

By George Anastasia
Jacobs
For Bigtrial.net

The question went to the heart of the case against mob boss Joe Ligambi.

After verbally sparring with an FBI undercover agent over a $25,000 cash payment by Anthony Staino that was either a loanshark transaction or an investment in an illegal (and ficticious) money-laundering scheme set up by the FBI, Edwin Jacobs Jr. asked, "What does Joe Ligambi have to do with that?"

That's the question, applied on several different levels, that Jacobs hopes the jury in the racketeering conspiracy retrial of Ligambi and his nephew George Borgesi takes with it when deliberations begin sometime next month.

Absent a smoking gun (literally and figuratively), the prosecution has built the racketeering conspiracy charge against Ligambi around the criminal activities of other mobsters. Some examples  -- a sports betting operation run by Gary Battaglini for mob leader Steven Mazzone; the loansharking/extortion gambit for which Staino was convicted in the first trial earlier this year, and the operation of a video poker machine company (JMA) by Staino.

The prosecution says they support the conspiracy charge; that Ligambi as mob boss approved of and benefitted from the crimes committed by his underlings. The defense says the evidence, weak and circumstantial, does not tie Ligambi, 74, to the allegations.

The only thing that really matters is what the jury thinks. And the anonymously chosen panel probably won't get to debate those points until sometime next month.

The prosecution is expected to conclude its presentation of witnesses and evidence when the trial resumes on Dec. 30 after a one-week break for the Christmas holiday. At that point, the defense will begin calling its witnesses.

The government has also used secretly recorded conversations, some dating back more than 10 years, to support the charge that Ligambi sat at the top of the Philadlelphia crime family.

There was the four-hour lunch meeting at LaGriglia, the North Jersey restaurant, in May 2010 in which Ligambi and three Philadelphia mobsters broke bread with leaders of the Gambino crime family. One of the Gambino soldiers, however, was cooperating and wearing a body wire.

There were tapes of Gary Battaglini discussing bookmaking and loansharking with a cooperating witness in 2002 and, on one tape, telling the cooperator that part of the payment he made each month was kicked up to Ligambi.

And there was Staino, on tape with undercover FBI agent David Sebatiani -- posing as a hustler and financial wheeler-dealer named Dino. Staino boasted about his ties to the mob, describing himself as the "CFO" and a member of the "board of directors" of the crime family.

While more focused than its prosecution in the first trial, the government's case against Ligambi is still largely circumstantial, a fact that Jacobs has alluded to again and again during the six-week trial. Despite an investigation that extended from 1999 to 2012, Ligambi's voice is seldom heard on tape.

And when it is, the mob boss's comments are often innocuous and open to various benign interpretations.

Frequently sarcastic and certainly profane, Ligambi largely kept his own counsel. Even at the LaGriglia meeting, his comments were less than incriminating. He joked about the father of an alleged member of a rival mob faction coming to his door after being told by the FBI that Ligambi planned to kill his son.

"I said, `What the fuck you talking about?'" Ligambi said, recounting the encounter which occurred on his South Philadelphia doorstep. "`Don't ever come around this house again. I don't know what you're talking about.' I mean, that's, that's the kind of nuts you're dealing with."

At another point he told a story about a mob associate who was so broke "the guy was selling cakes out of the trunk of his car." Ligambi also drew a laugh with a comment about the associate's girlfriend whom he described as "the broken down broad he was going out with in Florida."

He referred to Ralph Natale, a mob boss who had become a government witness, as "that rat motherfucker." And drew more laughter when he told the story about a phone call that came to his home from a North Jersey mobster who had gotten Ligambi's number from Rita Merlino, Skinny Joey's mother.

"It was Joey's mother," he said. "I told her, what're you giving this guy my number for? What the hell's the matter with you?"

But there are other comments that support the government's position, including an introduction made by Joseph "Scoops" Licata at the opening of the LaGriglia meeting. Introducing Ligambi to the New York mobsters, Licata said, "Our acting boss, Joe Ligambi, Philadelphia."

With the government's case all but completed, it's clear that it won't be Ligambi's words, but the words of others, that will determine his fate.

The same is true for Borgesi.

The case against the volatile 50-year-old mobster is built almost entirely around the testimony of two mob associates who became government witnesses.

If the jury believes the story Louis "Bent Finger Lou" Monacello and Anthony Aponick told from the witness stand, Borgesi was running a mob bookmaking and loansharking operation from prison where he was serving a 14-year sentence for a 2001 racketeering conviction.

Borgesi's lawyer, Christopher Warren, has attacked the credibility and motivation of both witnesses, claiming they implicated Borgesi with lies and half-truths, presenting a story that curries favor with the government and gets them out from under their own criminal problems.

Several defense witnesses who are expected to be called after the Christmas break will offer testimony to back up that claim.

Who do you trust?

Who do you believe?

Reasonable doubt?

Those are the questions that Warren wants the jury to consider.

Both defendants have been in this situation before.

In the first trial, which ended in February, Borgesi beat 13 of the 14 counts he faced and Ligambi was acquitted on five of nine charges. But the jury hung on the other counts, leading to the retrial that began in November.

The jury in the first trial appeared to reject Monacello's testimony (Aponick was not called as a witness in that case) finding Borgesi not guilty of specific loansharking and sports betting charges but inexplicably hanging on the overarching racketeering conspiracy charge.

The jury hung on that same count against Ligambi as well as on two gambling counts and on a witness tampering count which are also part of the ongoing trial. (Overall, after three weeks of rambling deliberations, the jury in the first trial delivered not guilty verdicts on 46 charges, hung on 11 others and delivered just five guilty verdicts. Four of the seven defendants in that case, however, are now serving lengthy jail terms. One, Licata, was acquitted, and Ligambi and Borgesi are still fighting.)

With its convoluted verdict, the jury in the first trial apparently couldn't answer the key question posed by Jacobs earlier this week.

"What does Joe Ligambi have to do with that?"

We're not sure, the jury verdict seemed to say. Or, more to the point, we can't agree.

But this is a different jury. And it has heard a more focused government case. How it answers that question will determine Ligambi's fate. And what it thinks of Monacello and Aponick will go a long way toward determining Borgesi's future.

  1. Had nothing to do with the witnesses!(even the one who was so stoned he couldn't Talk) How about no concrete proof. There is so many loop holes, there is no logical way to make a sound decision. I have comment on a previous article,(I was told BOO WHO) and I'm doing this again.--Bloggers go back and forth, when they are not the ones sitting in that chair making the decision about someone else life. The plain and simple fact, there is no denying they are in the mob! The families choose to be apart of this. The men sitting there Choose to be apart of this, The witnesses Choose to be on the witness stand, The very high paid Lawyers, who slept, picked their noses, Choose to defend them. Apparently the audience even Choose to come when they want! This is not true for the Jury. What happens behind those closed doors does not need to be justified or explain to anyone. The trial has and will effect every single one of them. They were the ones who lost their lives, families, and career for sitting in a chair and looking at these men for months. The only difference between this trial and the first is, the jury does not have to stare at 7 defendants, their lawyers, the same family members and George everyday.
    I'm not really sure how any of them got a lengthy sentence? No one got life in prison and a lot of the time they spent waiting for both trial will come off of there sentence. Again, they choose this!! George chooses to write about it. Most of us want to stay anonymous but in reality no one it the court room will ever forget our faces and we will never forget. I hope this time there is a decision made just for closer! I am only writing because it bothers me how the other bloggers fight back and forth. These men are good men but just went on a path of life handed to them. They are smart, passionate, dedicated and family men! Most Italians are. Family comes first, hence "friends of ours". In fact they do not just hurt anybody, they hurt each other.
    On that note, I will say, Living the life of never forgetting has and will always change all of these people so keep in mind before you bash anyone!

I'm sure they know jurers are reading this and the FBI and him know it also. The FBI, US attorney and the judge truly showed the abuse of power. The judge forgets his humble beginnings from a Communist control country like Cuba. He handle this like a dictator. I feel for the jurors who have to endure this debacle of a retrial. I hope they see threw the government and its abuse of power and disrespecting the intellegence of the jury system. Merry Christmas

Im actually for the defendants myself n I know its strange with my degree being in crim j. However, I believe a ethnic crime is being committed here. How can the same victimless crimes that non- Italians are doing in my area be gotten away with and down there in Philly it's not? Frustrating. We have sports betting, video poker machine payouts,etc. If its such a crime, why did Governor Corbett legalize rip off tickets, etc.? They shouldn't even be in the courtroom.

  56. We have a government of laws, then the same laws should apply to all, no more immunity for a judge violating those laws. But we have government courts of men(judges)who are not bound by law and who other judges protect with judicial immunity for acts in violation of law. Such a system deserves no respect, nor do the judges who perpetuate it.

    Isn't it time we do away with immunity? Its only in place to safeguard government corruption.

Saying these things about people you probably don't know only shows your weakness. Your no better than the lying rats that are testifying in this case. Maybe you play the game well and have knowledge of what a rat, fruitcake is...hmmm.? How do you know if Salvie Testa would of ratted with the technology the government has today? They don't give out 3-5 years sentences,like his fathers time, they give out phone numbers for sentencing. I,m sure he was a solid guy and didn't deserve to be killed by his best friends who he did everything for, regardless of that saying "that's the life they live" to justify it. He was well know, liked and had a good head but sometimes that can be recipe jealously especially amongst S.Philly people.

  67. Man I have been following this case since the indictments came down, but just seeing the crap that gets posted on these comments is ridiculous. People post anonymous but yet act like they know these people personally. Somebody calls Lancelotti a rat but yet where is the proof? Seeing this on top of the craziness that goes on in the GBB and the Blackhand, which most anonymous posters here probably post their to, I have come to realize that the organize crime watchers, especially the Philly ones and Chicago, are nothing but a bunch of losers who don't know anything but since they saw Mazzone at a deli, they think they know everything and get offended when someone disagrees with them. This comment section has really turned me off of keeping up with the going on's of this trial as well as other o.c. related new because I do not want to become a loser like most of you jerk off's.

    Keep up the good writing George.
