Fourteen alleged members of the storied Gambino crime family — including current boss Daniel Marino — have been indicted on charges that include murder, racketeering, prostitution of minors, and trying to locate and intimidate a sequestered jury, in cases that span “literally decades of criminality,” the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Manhattan said today. "Today, the Gambino family has lost one of its leaders, and many of its rising stars have now fallen," U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said. "We will continue to work with our partners at the FBI to eradicate the mafia and to keep organized crime from victimizing the businesses and the people of this city." [CNN, NYT]
