Mob Trial Recesses For Five Days

By George Anastasia
For Bigtrial.net

The anonymously chosen jury in the conspiracy retrial of mob boss Joe Ligambi and his nephew George Borgesi headed home this afternoon for a five-day break.

There will be no trial Monday through Wednesday to accommodate judicial scheduling issues. The trial is set to resume on Thursday. 

For all intents and purposes the prosecution has wrapped up its case against Borgesi, 50, who faces only a racketeering conspiracy charge.

The jury this week heard crucial testimony from two mob informants who tied the volatile South Philadelphia mobster to ongoing organized crime activities while Borgesi was in prison following a conviction in an unrelated racketeering case in 2001.

Anthony Aponick, 43, a cellmate of Borgesi's in a federal prison in West Viriginia, completed his testimony this morning with a brief cross-examination by Ligambi's lawyer, Edwin Jacobs Jr.

Aponick first took the stand on Wednesday. His testimony largely corroborated the story told by Louis "Bent Finger Lou" Monacello who testified before him. Monacello, 47, has been described as Borgesi's "point man" in gambling and loansharking operations.

The two witnesses were both hammered on cross-examination with defense attorneys challenging  their stories and their reasons for cooperating. Both admitted to committing a series of crimes and being part of an organized crime network.

"We're criminals," Aponick said at one point.

His matter-of-fact descriptions were in synch with Monacello who toned down his delivery considerably from the first time he took the stand last year in a trial in which Ligambi and Borgesi were defendants.

The jury in that case hung on the racketeering conspiracy charge that both defendants now face. Ligambi, 74, is also facing two gambling counts and a witness tampering count.

Prosecutors hope to complete their case before Christmas. Judge Eduardo Robreno has indicated that court will not be in session Christmas week. How many witnesses the defense opts to call could determine how much longer the trial will last.

Speculation is that jury deliberation will begin shortly after the New Year.

In the last trial, which included seven defendants, the jury deliberated for nearly three weeks. At one point Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Labor likened the process to wandering in the dessert. Four defendants were convicted in a confusing jury verdict in which the panel rejected the bulk of the prosecution's case. Of 71 charges, the jury came back with guilty verdicts on only five.

Joseph "Scoops" Licata was acquitted and walked out of court a free man. Borgesi came close to walking away with the jury finding him not guilty of 13 of the 14 counts he faced. But the panel hung on the racketeering conspiracy charge, resulting in the retrial. Ligambi beat five of the nine counts he faced.

A month into this trial it's obvious the prosecution has streamlined its presentation. The fact that there are only two defendants is part of the reason. But the case has also been presented in a clearer and more understandable fashion.

The consensus after the last trial was the that jury had no idea what a conspiracy was.

This time the panel, based on the comportment and approach of the jurors each day, appears to be following the case closely. There is little indication of any confusion. If that assessment is correct, it might not bode well for the defendants.

The panel includes ten women and two men. There are four alternates.

A conspiracy charge is heavily weighted in the prosecution's favor. As explained by the judge to the jury, a defendant doesn't have to commit a crime, but merely conspire with others who carry out the criminal activity.

The prosecution has tried to put Ligambi into a conspiracy by introducing evidence that he was the boss or acting boss of the Philadelphia crime family. Among other things, the prosecution keyed in on a lunch meeting at a restaurant in North Jersey in May 2010 in which Ligambi and several other Philadelphia crime family leaders meet with leaders of the Gambino crime family.

One of the mobsters at that meeting was cooperating with the FBI and wore a body wire in which he taped conversations.

Borgesi, jailed since 2000, has been tied to a conspiracy through the testimony of Monacello and Aponick, according to the prosecution's presentation. A key part of that allegation is Aponick's trip to Philadelphia after he was released from prison to meet with Monacello.

The meeting, at Ralph's Italian Restaurant on Ninth Street, was set up by Borgesi, both Aponick and Monacello said. Borgesi called from prison during the dinner and that taped phone call (all prison calls are monitored and taped) was played twice for the jury.

While the defense tried to argue that Aponick and Monacello were meeting to discuss legitimate business deals, both witnesses said the meeting was set up to expand on Borgesi's proposal for Aponick to move from New York to Philadelphia and become part of a gambling and loansharking operation that Monacello was overseeing.

In separate testimony today, the jury heard about how authorities closely watched Borgesi while he was an inmate in a federal prison in Beckley, West Virginia. Aponick was his cellmate there for about a year between 2002 and 2003.

Borgesi, because of his mob connections, was designated "an inmate of concern." All his phone calls were monitored and recorded and all his correspondence (letters he wrote and those he received) were read, copied and copies forwarded to the FBI.

The jury was also shown prison records indicating that Ligambi visited Borgesi 14 times between 2002 and 2009 and Monacello visited 12 times. Other records showed that Ligambi had placed $7,700 in Borgesi's prison commissary during that period and that mobster Anthony Staino, who visited five times, placed an additional $1,600.

A prison official testified that inmates were limited to spending $250-a-month from their commissary account. He also said the $7,700 provided by Ligambi was "excessively" high and out of the ordinary for most inmates.

The jury also heard that Borgesi had two prison violations while at Beckley, once for fighting with another inmate and once for assaulting his wife in the prison visitation room while she was visiting him.

Testimony and evidence introduced during the trial has portrayed Alyson Borgesi as her husband's most loyal confidante. Both Monacello -- who referred to her one time as "Alyson Corleone" -- and Aponick said they were surprised that Borgesi  shared mob business information with his wife and used her to pass messages.

"It's unusual for a woman to be involved," said Aponick who held himself out as an associate of the Bonanno crime family in New York and one who from the age of 12 had been around the mobster "life."

I read the news everyday and there is plenty of crimes commited by other groups of people and they get by a small headline and receive less time in jail and in many cases set free with probation at the most. This is a personal issue for the prosecution , FBI and the Judge!

    4. Personal hatred! Maybe you have had some personal dealings with him? Either way the physical appearance comments are pheable minded. It's the facts of trial and the waste of taxpayers money, that's all!! The FBI, US attorneys office are bullies, drunk with power. I'm sure he said things to them that are not polite but they use their power with the system to ruin his family and anyone who comes in contact with him. He is not Bin Laden! The FBI is over staffed and don't have much to do. They are provocative because they can't get what they want. As for me a civilian in this country, I fear our government more than ever. This case is non violent, even if it was most people who have had been victims of any, ask yourself whom have they maliciously done things to? The ones who should be on trial are the ones on the stand pointing the finger in the other direction from their acts. Have you criticized yourself lately on your appearance? Think about it...

  26. I am an avid reader of George Anastasia's and Ralph Cipriano's articles. They are concise, fact filled and impartial. Something you don't find in many newspapers anymore. While I appreciate this blog, I abhor the "comments" I usually don't hide behind "anonymous" but since I write a small blog myself, I don't need these "anonymous" idiots slamming my blog.

    The "fag" and "gay" slurs are not only offensive but more akin to 12 year old boy's comments. If you can not use your vocabulary in a better way, shut up.

    Everyone who comments seems to have some "inside" information. Please enlighten us, because I am sure George Anastasia needs your help. (That was sarcasm incase you needed to know.)

    As far as the facts that George A. and Ralph C. have presented. It seems that the tax payers money is being wasted on a colossal level. If someone is in jail for OVER TEN years, all of his calls and visits are monitored and all you can come up with is some cryptic phone conversation, Christmas cards and the word of convicted criminals; you either are not doing your job very well, or you don't have a case. That is ultimately for the jury to decide and I will wait for that decision.

    In the mean-time, I thank George A. for his reporting and concise articles. For the rest of your commenters, leave your homophobic rhetoric in your small minded heads and not in these comments.

    3. Good to read an educated opinion on how the government is wasting our dollars on a sham of a retrial. Why would we spend money on (again) prosecuting Borgesi and Ligambi when our schools are crumbling and our citizens are unemployed. Lay off some of the FBI personnel (especially those involved in this farce) and send the money where we need it.

    1. That life isn't a pleasant one for the families at all. For most of them it's a chosen life, and those who may not be around anymore, we need to remember the victims of the victims. The FBI use many of those who lost someone to their advantage, they are some heartless people also. To them it's a promotion.

    1. You must live in a cave than. The first government informant came from NYC. Joe Valachi, and don't forget Joe Pistone, Henry Hill, and of course Sammy "the bull" Gravano! Just a few to mention. This is a blog on the trial. It's turned into a attack on the defendants by people who live in around it and may know them. They are using it to "destroy" them, threw anonymity. Anyone who is using this blog not to discuss it in civility are most likely more vial to society than those who are defending themselves against allegations by paid informants . Those same informants spill their lowlife hatred just like some of the pheable comments. Did you take notice that Aponick is from Naw Yarwk.. The pride of NYC.. Huh!? How many guys did he ware a wire on in NYC ?

    2. Wasnt aponick BOY GEORGES CELL MATE

    3. According to Aponick he was asked to come to Philadelphia but he decided to stay in NYC and rob some more banks and take the FBI money and ware a wire on some of his buddies, meanwhile be in the witness protection program. Pride of the Ratten Apple!

    1. It's amusing how some people look to NYC for approval. That city had more movies and more books after more informants than any other. They are by far have a great rep also. They only fool those who are amused to the Brooklyn accent . What's the NYC code to the inmates?

  82. Joe Pistone was a FBI agent Dumy!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep he was a FBI agent! He was the first agent to infiltrate a so- called mob family. How dumb were they to allow a guy they didn't know in!? How about this Garcia he is another FBI agent that was allowed in, again another NYC so-called family. Philly never had a FBI agent get that close..yet. So just stick to using your accent that's the only thing that separates you from the rest. Now who is the dummy...dummy! Stop being ridiculous paid informants are only bragging rights for the FBI not those who have to defend their deceitful allegations.
