Gotti Gets Off for the Fourth Time


After 11 days of deliberations, the jury in John “Junior” Gotti’s racketeering trial was still deadlocked today, leading a federal judge to declare a mistrial. This is the fourth mistrial for Gotti in five years. If convicted, he would have faced life in prison. Instead he’ll get to go home for a few months until prosecutors try to convict him a fifth time. That one’s supposed to be a charm, right? [NYP]
