Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/04/18 05:38 AM

Just to discuss this trial.

It's coming up--and Rooster D'Onofrio got himself excused. I'm fascinated by it--Ed Jacobs as lawyer, but in NY? What's the charges?

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/04/18 07:29 AM

Sounds like they are 100% gunning for him.....This case may be small potatoes BUT, even if he beats this in some way, they WILL NOT stop their pursuit of him.
I believe they will eventually get something to stick.
Scarfo Jr. wasn't too smart with his scenario but the governments hatred for his dad I am sure added to trying to get him.
Probably assumed since Leonetti flipped, so would Jr.......Seems like Jr. is stuck. I don't even think Jr. has enough dark secrets to even reduce his sentence? I believe he became a Luc after Leonetti flipped so he probably knew very little. Semi-trusted!

Look at Gotti!.....Now Joey use to be a very flamboyant boss but has seemed to calm down a little but, he seriously is the LAST boss from the 90's who is still technically on the street and in power.
Too bad Philly did not learn to do things the way the West Side did their thing......Did Benny Squint have ANY convictions or jail time? Talk about incognito!

Vic and Carmine do not count.
And DiFronzo is not active. I don't see them going hard after him.

Philly lcn dose not need Merlino on the streets to be successful...the admin has done a great job at creating extra positions that insulated the boss from the streets, if they don't put him away from a long time now they never will...I believe Thiers made guys in Philly that's nt on the charts
Posted By: Giacomo

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/05/18 08:54 PM

I think someone mentioned here a while back that one of the reasons Joey wouldn't plead out (in addition to the case being pretty weak) is that a guilty plea would result in a RICO predicate already on his record for future prosecutions.

D'Onofrio certainly had the world's most convenient heart attack.

So how much strong philly is ??
And how many soldiers they have ?
I also think pepole underestimate them

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/06/18 12:57 AM

Think it starts next week. Genovese asshat rubeo and a bonanno soldier pete something he fliped like last year. Both have domestics beating there girls after they started working for the feds bad look in the harvey weinstein era. The feds asked the judge not to allow the defense to ask them about it how weak. I hope merlino walks just cause of that. The da doesnt want the jury to know how much shitbags they make deals with. But if merlino is found guilty on the racketeering charge hes gonna get 20.

Well with the price well over a million $ for Eddie and crew " in Skinny case now for all the people that said Skinny was not the boss or there is no one kicking up or a street tax not going on I guess this rico trial has stifled many mouths.

And for all the people that say Philly is top heavy without soldiers is now a thought of the past .

The new guys in the family must be doing pretty well and not getting anxious and falling for any Feds trying to pinch them .

The one thing that gets me is the amount of cash the associates and the sheer number of associates kicking up is alive and well .

Now I don't get why we are not hearing more about a street tax" not like Scarfo but it's rolling and it's quiet , very surprised at this . Not about the number of men cos I know this area but the cash theses guys are getting and not reaching and getting pinched .

I know a few years back Skinny put it out there that he wanted everything down to a low roar and it has happened, got to hand it to him it's running smoothly!!!

Well all but this case .

Yeah he is a heat magnet. If you got something illegal going, you wouldn't want to go near the guy.

The trial should turn up some interesting stuff.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/09/18 11:01 PM

I've mentioned before on here that I worked a few times in Merlinos, and that Joey used to come in to other places where I worked.
It seemed like he couldn't finish his dinner because between fork fulls people were coming up and wanting a picture with him or his autograph.

How many here know that the old Merlinos is now a place called "Frankie and Dinos" and that its owned by Carlo Vacarezza (Gottis former driver and good friend).

There is a small section in the Boca Raton/DelRay Beach area that has a "presence" especially right now during the season. But its nothing like it was in the 1970s-80s when the whole Gold Coast, all of Miami Beach, Halendale, Hollywood, Ft.Laud etc. was crawling with wiseguys.
Back then there where dozens of clubs that were run by LCN. Guys shaking down valet parking stands, loans sharks all over the dog and horse tracks. It was like a mini New York down here in the winter months.
But it was always a little tricky to tell the "real" from the wannabe phonies with the pinky rings and the "gimme a Buca ova here honey wit da tree beans, gotta have da tree beans...."

I have not wanted to say much about this because I know some " well more then some of the players.
It's ironic that it also is surrounded by this pain cream scam up here though. The Pagan's are involved and many local police and firefighters.

There is also a murder for hire from the doctor that's behind a lot of this . I don't know if any of the players are connected to Philly mob but Eddie Jacobs is defending the Dr. behind the racket and Pegan's also.

Look up Dr. Kauffman Egg Harbor Township . He actually had his office right around the corner from Nicky Jr. And across the street from Chris S. not that they re connected but it's a small town for this.

Stress of the trial. Ya..or maybe the 2 packs a day...I dont think its by pass, I think stints or however its spelled, I dont think its a long delay in trial either..nowadays bypass is like pulling teeth by the way, I know multiple people who have lived quarter century plus after ..dont get me wrong,its not a good thing, but if u have it done and live the right way after, you can live a long time
Posted By: PHL_Mob

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/12/18 03:22 AM

I feel like Rooster may have inspired Skinny with his little trial delay slash trial separation... all it takes is a a doctor down there in FL who will "play ball" with Skinny and tell the courts/Feds that he has symptoms of whatever heart condition he's claiming to have and there you have it - trial delayed. And Skinny apparently hasn't had problems with finding/having access to Doctors who will "play ball" and get on board with his schemes, etc! But who knows... maybe it truly is a good 'ol combo of stress from the trial + heavy smoking + mild drug use...
Posted By: blueracing347

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/12/18 03:40 AM

If they cath'd him, they put the stents in, monitor for a couple days and send him on his way. If it were the bypass CABG, he'd be in the hospital and need more than a week. That's what we do in my ICU. But that would be some shit if he was able to find a doc to play ball. Nowadays there is so much documentation with just a skinned knee, that I doubt they could fake a cardiac intervention even if it was just the catheterization with two stents. Who Fucking knows with these guys.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/12/18 11:54 AM

I would've thought in circumstances such as these that it would be mandated for him to have a battery of tests under a neutral doctor in a hospital chosen by the feds.

He's clearly faking. The guy is as fit as a fiddle and the timing is taking the piss.

It would be easy for him to get a doctor on his payroll.

He was hospitalized though so it couldn't be a doctor playing ball. The article even says he had a catheterization done on him. Look it up those procedures are no joke. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardiac_catheterization

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/12/18 07:07 PM

There is absolutely no way that you can fake a blockage and in this day in age, no way to fake medical records.

Posted By: PHL_Mob

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/20/18 09:44 PM

I'm not doubting that he had something wrong with his heart or whatever, all I'm implying is that maybe he had a doctor work with him to exacerbate the severity of everything. Enough to get the trial delayed/postponed. With all the Medicare fraud (Joey's trial case in point) and all the crooked doctors out there, which we know Joey has access to, I wouldn't be surprised if he was able to pull some strings and get some amped up diagnosis or whatever. Who knows though?
Posted By: blueracing347

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/21/18 02:54 AM

You don't just go to the doc's office to take care of a blockage. You go the hospital. You then get an attending and then a cardiologist. I'm sure he's nut paying cash, so now insurance is involved. Everything is documented from the cardiologist, atending, all the nurses,and so on. He would rather get it over with. What the hell is two or three weeks gonna do for him.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 01/27/18 09:22 PM

Damion Canalichio seems like an unlikely one to flip, because he's due out in a couple of years and because he has close family members in the life in South Philly. How much advance notice do the feds have to give Merlino's lawyer about a witness list? If they don't have to announce witness lists until the trial starts, this could just be a game of bluff against Merlino.

They are expecting Skinny to walk .

I am more interested in what will happen if he goes away . Chang , Mazzone , will try to hold the spot for him .

I think “Georgie “ will mussel in with a little help from another guy that is no push over . I been saying for years Georgie will not sit for anyone, very surprised he has not been flexing more .

But he will take a shot and he does want for guys to make him rich so in order to do that he will have to go back to being very aggressive .

Good thing we don’t have long to wait bad news he will expose a lot of guys and have guys turn there back on the way it’s been.

“Deadlock win, all the way,” Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino, told The Post inside a Manhattan federal courtroom after jury selection wrapped up.

That's why they're going after him, because he's an a-hole...Instead of just keeping his mouth shut, he's gotta try and show bravado and the government doesn't like that...If its a weak case then you can bet they brought it because he acts like such an a-hole !!

‘He was charged with recording his converstations with alleged mobsters — and gangland gossip implicated Merlino as big figure.’

If all they have on the tapes is gossip, Merlino is going to walk.

The name of the judge that Merlino is appearing in front of is Richard Sullivan, this might be a break for Merlino because judge doe's not believe in guilt by association, the evidence have to be real strong for an conviction...but let's just see what the jury have to say about it, lol

I went to NYC to see if I can sit in on the Merlino trial today, but the police and employees had no idea who Merlino was, not only that they also told me that they don't have trials in that build and I left out, but I think they do have the Merlino trial in that building, I was able to confirm the judge name after I left the building and was able to confirm on my phone. Merlino is small potatoes in new York, I see no reporters or camera's anywhere, that explains why there's such poor coverage on this trial...I will see if I can make it up here again tomorrow

Today's news is not good for Merlino, I think. The cream thing, I think people are sympathetic to the fact that no one understands the intricacies of healthcare, and a jury might say "well he didn't know." But today--"you gotta give me something every month"--that's something that the jury's not going to forget, right?

Yaeh stuff the press has wrote very bad. The post just wrote about merlino and onofrio talking how easy its to whack someone with dreams by fleetwood mac comes on and they toast salud. That shit sounds like a movie. But i think tye defense hasnt even got to cross this guy rubeo on tye stand yet. I sure theyll have all types of gossip from people who hate him in the bronx how he robbed a nunn in 1998. Will see. That 2 yr plea looks so good but i dont think they even got to sart asking why he likes to beat up his girlfriend why was he working for the feds but still robbing people for there money. Merlinos an lawyer were wrong thinking the feds wouldnt put him on the stand i wonder what they say about all the recordings he surposely erased.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/02/18 03:46 AM

I got fat fingers sorry for the bad spelling lil phone. You guys think they called rubeo as the first witness cause hes the most important or the prosecution hopes the jury forgets about him by the end of the trial and all the dirt comes out on him? The bonanno capo who made a retired cop blind in a eye is gonna be another hard sell by the prosecution to. Interesting to say the least. Made a deal with the devil to get a bigger devil.

Everyone knows Merlino is guilty of all the charges yet he still has his loyal disciples defending him and dismissing the Feds case because of technicalities.

I know, proof beyond reasonable doubt etc. etc.

In which case.

Where would these Merlino groupies morals stand if, say, a pedophile or rapist was acquitted on a technicality or some other fluke?

Eddie is great but Skinny has a history and unless there is one juror that is hot against the feds then Philly will have a new boss and Skinny is done.

I guess I will hear more this week coming when Eddie gets his chance at the case .

Yeah, because comparing gambling and insurance fraud charges to pedophlia charge is the same thing.


There was a pedophile priest in Boston sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2002 for grabbing a 10 year old boys ass over 10 years prior.

Going purely by guidelines and statutes it was a harsh sentence but everyone knew he was guilty of raping kids for over 30 years.

It's the same thing here except we're swapping a pedophile priest for a career criminal suspected in over a dozen murders (and, no, not all of his crimes and murders affect just other criminals).

And it's knowingly obtuse to condense his charges to "gambling" and "forged prescriptions". The guy came off a lenient prison sentence and immediately went back to breaking parole conditions by consorting with other mobsters in the open (John Ciancaglini), although he tried, and failed, to be less brazen.

He's caught red-handed on tape talking about murders, talking about being in the mob; ensconced in racketeering.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/05/18 08:18 PM

I'll try to post some of his tweets during the day if I can. Tuesday and Wednesday I'm not sure I can though.

Courtesy of @ realmobtalk7 like thebigfella posted above (in order from today and I skipped his personal thoughts about Rubeo):

Rubeo admits under oath the fbi paid him over $500,000
9:57 AM

Rubeo admits he beat his wife.
9:57 AM

Rubeo admits he broke the law dozens of times after he signed a cooperation agreement.
9:57 AM

Rubeo says he lied to the fbi, prosecutors multiple times
9:58 AM

Rubeo likely stole $500,000 from the Cosa Rica Bookmaking operation, and ran to Merlino for help.
10:10 AM

Rubeo admits to lying to FBI handlers about a book deal in and effort to make it seem as if their was more to the story then actuality.
10:11 AM

Rubeo flip flopped non stop on tapes where Joey clearly said he didn’t know so and so and wanted no part in medical cream scam.
10:11 AM

In a funnier moment Jacobs(Merlino s Attorney) made a Rubeo describe what a rat is and does.
10:13 AM

Rubeo claimed he was an associate of the Genovese and Philadelphia mafia which was met with laughs
10:14 AM

Rubeo said there was a sitdown over the alleged $500,000 debt, which Merlino allegedly said do the right thing and pay what you owe. The truth is Rubeo stole the money from Mickey(owner of CSB)
10:17 AM

Rubeo said he lied to Patsy Parello and sold drugs to supplement his income.
10:18 AM

Rubeo admitted to breaking into houses, cheating on his wife, and blackmailed the fbi, and stole 30k in money orders, all under the watch of the FBI!!!
10:23 AM
Posted By: dixiemafia

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/05/18 08:26 PM

More


Rubeo said he was hallucinating in his jail cell due to an oxycodone addiction.
10:25 AM

Rubeo said he was making $700 a week from CHS for collecting loansharking debts.
10:35 AM

Rubeo said he gave Merlino a total of $60,000 but never made it clear to Merlino what the money was for. Jacobs argued Joey went out of his way to help Rubeo not get killed.
10:36 AM

Rubeo and Merlino stare down after a Rubeo called him a gangster was pretty interesting.
11:03 AM

No more tweets after that so they are probably at lunch or done for the day. I'll go back and try to see if there are other tweets following the trial before today

I don't really follow Philly much and really don't know about the charges but I can say if this guy is posting the truth out of there it doesn't look good if Rubeo is the only rat they have against Merlino. He is getting chopped up!

My opinion is that Cirillo was the main guy, Along with Rubeo and Kriesberg and Camacho and Joey got named only because The fbi wanted Merlino: all transcripts prove that it was everyone else but Merlino who was involved.

Rubeo said Merlino wanted in his pockets nothing more, yet on multiple tapes Merlino is never heard discussing any of the Medicaid business. A three hour taper didn’t include Merlino discussing anything, however Cirillo and others were.

Rubeo and Camacho had a joint bank account where they distributed funds from the scripts. Rubeo admitted not all that money wa s put into the bank account. Just some. He gave 1 check to the FBI. Another example of not being honest.

The only $ Merlino ever got was $5,000 which didn’t come from Rubeos profits but the FBI. At no time@did Merlino ever receive a check or cash from any profit from the cream.

Rubeo admitted that he only met Merlino because the FBI asked him to get friendly with Merlino because they wanted to indict him for something. Prior to that Rubeo didn’t know Merlino.
22 hours ago

Merlino went to this meeting only to help as a friend and was nothing more than a mediator because his friend Rubeo was upset. It was Rubeo who asked Merlino to introduce him to Brad.
22 hours ago

The Medicaid cream fraud was designed by Rubeo, Kriesberg with Cirillo and Camacho. In meeting Joey tried to defend Rubeos claims that Kriesberg ripped off Camacho built not paying him. At no time was Joey in these discussions other than to try and help Rubeo state his issues
22 hours ago

Lunch break in trial, Pinocchio Rubeo getting hammered non stop all morning. In one statement he said Merlino took 50-100 per script then 30 mins later changed his story. Transcripts proved Merlino didn’t take a dime from this.

little google all 8 of the guys in tampa plead guilty there all awaiting sentencing. the feds took there cars boats n homes. a few of them are cooperating. wayne krieberg was indicted in tampa and ny with bradley sirkin and merlino. i guess kriesberg took the stand today.

Merlino is not clean but he's crafty, he knows what not to say and He's really good at it. There's no way they made all of that money and Merlino didn't get a cut. I remember reading that Merlino tooked 10% of Carmine gallo's book, but the serious guys didn't snitch and now Merlino knows who he can trust. he needs to organize it and put a crew leader in charge and go back to philly. It's time for philly to start expanding its territory

just read capecis gangland column. jerrys pretty pro gov side. hes writting like this is a merlino win. hes even going as far as saying this will be the first time a boss has won trial since gotti in 87* he bought a juror. i guess the bonanno capo peter whatever already tesified and got ript to shreds. he just rememberd in november 2017 he meet merlino in either 2014 or 2015 in philly to discuss the cream scam but never got around to telling his fbi and police handlers. he was a infomant since 2012. i dont know how this is gonna end. its a good article by capeci. the guy rubeo is tallking to his wife in a recorded jail call playing out in front of the jury and he says to his wife this is a fucked up case. i guess the jury wasnt surpoed to hear that part. someone with a brain copy and paste. i dont know how. hopefully 1 day i can link a link.

In Joey's defense, the New Yorkers have no idea who he is, and so there's almost no security and no barriers between jurors, defendant, prosecutors, jury. Joey goes out to have a fucking cigarette and he ends up in an elevator with half the jury? Not his fault. I think the judge realizes this.

Dumb move by merlino if he called the juror by her first name i dont no how that will effect him. I wonder how they make the racketeering conspiracy thing work. I used to no if you were found guilty of 2 predicate acts you were toast. This case is so different from say the tommy gioeli case where it was like 20 crimes the colombo family did over 30 yrs. This case is a genovese gambling operation in yonkers a health care scam in tampa florida and the philly boss is on trial for it in Manhattan. Thinking a hung jury on some count maybe not guilty on 1 i dont know .

He probably thinks he's some kind of don juan or something and that she might be impressed with him or something...Well he's no Tom Selleck and she could have easily have taken it that he's letting her know that he knows who she is to intimidate her...Very stupid move by a very stupid guy !!

That may in fact have a paradoxical effect on the woman’s decision. Rather than feel intimidated or even flattered, the woman may say “ who the hell is he, i’ll show him”...
That was a dumb move especially if the woman is on the fence when it comes down to the verdict.

Great job Moe! Also the post article is clearly overblown and thats what we were talking about with Jeff C-------,. obviously you are not following to closely and just dropping in to rip merlino LOL. Of course he is guilty of being a gangster and whatnot but this case is an absolute joke, anyone looking at the evidence presented can see that. Im pretty impartial and the only thing Ive heard that woild sway me towards guilty as a juror was Merlino on tape telling a bookmaker "you gotta give me something". Even that is pretty weak for one count let alone 2 RICO predicates

i figured somthing out. the prosecution is calling it east coast o.c. so they can fit all this shit under 1 umbrella. skinny joey the boss of philly. why is he getting any cutt from a gambling ring in yonkers how is he responcible for a health scam out of tampa. its used to be hes the philly enterprise a mafia family that consists of a boss underboss soldiers and capos. this is extreme. it makes you think maybe philly isnt kicking that much up to him or hes really greedy. whys he running all over southern florida to resolve beeefs for a associate of the genovese family. also wheres all the philly guys when rubeo is taping joey for 2 3 yrs. the more i think about it hes gonna be found guilty of the gambling ring but not the actual racketeering conspiracy which is a huge win cause that porks you. also the health care probaly not guilty. but all guess maybe hes found guilty across the board. but asaro beat everthing. even tommy gioeli bear everything but the racket conspracy he got hit off 18yrs. the genovese guy from queens beat the trial and the guy from florida farese won at trial.

Check it. And this chick is like the T-1000. She has the capability to mimic Joey Merlino's voice.

And they got someone who sounded like Joey Merlino to say all those incriminating things on tape too.

its the biggest federal court house in america where they prosecuted the guys behind 9/11 and every other terrorist trial. theres more cameras in that building then cbs big brother house. the judge had one of the court officers rewind the tapes and they all watched it. couldnt have been that bad or they would have revoked his bail or put him in the holding cell for the day. how did it get leaked to all the papers.

Moe I get it and you don’t have to go full on clown when making a point.

But it’s awful strange that no one else seen this no cameras picked it up and the case was completely falling apart .

Trust me I am so far from a Skinny supporter but this is one of the worst displays of your tax dollars at work .

Believe me I know he is not past something like this but not when his life is on the line with one word.

Rubeo was also in Philadelphia and hung out with the guys. The Philly FBI office wasn't made aware of this and he didn't even wear a wire. The SDNY really fucked up the whole investigation. Also Merlino brought Lance to NYC for the party at Parrello's restaurant.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/12/18 12:58 AM

This is not how court works, though. They pull the jury if the judge wants to ask the defendant something like this. They don't pull the audience out. Merlino would have answered the judge in front of every reporter covering this trial--and since every indication suggests they either don't show or sleep through it, this happened first thing in the morning.

Point being, if there was a reporter there, he watched the full exchange and heard the court reporter read out the transcript. Meanwhile, the jury sat in a back room for two hours and wondered what had happened...and juror #9 surely said...nothing...right?

The NY Post article says the judge addressed it in the courtroom

Quote
Back in the courtroom, Sullivan gave a stern tongue-lashing to Merlino, who earlier had denied ever greeting or speaking to the juror.

“Mr. Merlino, you are to have no contact with jurors, even to say, ‘Good morning,’ even to say, ‘Hello.’ Do you understand?” he said.

Merlino — whose wife, Deborah, was startled by a snitch’s testimony Wednesday that the wiseguy had been cheating on her — mumbled something in response, prompting the judge to admonish him again.

From what I understand part of the gambling indictment stems from Merlino giving A whale from Ohio to a bookie in flordia . the bookies name escapes me at this moment but he plead out already. From What I gather merlno was getting ten percent of this guys losses . The guy was losing big and then when he won the bookie didn't pay him. He threatened to come to Floridia and collect the guys in floridia discussed having to defend themselves if the guy showed up . Merlino is contending he was not a bookmaker , As he never actually took any bets.

Let's see.

*Refers to murder on tape
*Refers to tribute being paid to him, again on tape
*Several references to racketeering, again on tape
*Threatens juror

While the crux of the defense argument seems to be John Rubeo is untrustworthy because he's a gangster. Which is pretty asinine when you consider that turncoat mobsters have been a fixture of mafia case prosecutions for over 40 years.

There have been several books written over the years featuring guys (Previte) talking repeatedly about how Merlino doesn't randomly get involved with other mob guys, let alone close to them, unless there is a scam in the offing.

But keep being obtuse and pretending there's no case.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/14/18 06:08 PM

Plus let me jump in on this too about the verdict. Now granted all I ever seen was some of the Rubeo testimony before I left for a vacation over the weekend, but if that is the best the government had there is no way they come back with a guilty verdict and I could give a shit about Merlino or Philly. Neither has really interested me a lot. Rubeo was a horrible rat, most of the time you can feel good about a conviction with guys like Gravano who even though he was full of shit at times he still knew enough to get through the turncoat shit, much like The Crow too and Massino against Vito Rizzuto as well. In those cases the jury can see through the bullshit of some rats and come back with a guilty verdict.

I think Merlino will still be the boss no matter what he gets, he will still be in charge when he gets out because his buddies will still be running it keeping is place, even if narducci becomes the boss he will be in a bottle

Merlino's groupie who has been providing updates about the trial so impartially on Twitter had this to say:

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/14/18 08:29 PM

You have to remember, Rubio was not a good witness beacuse he lied many times, their were many inconsistancies, and the defense tore him apart. Not to mention he selectively turned his wire on and off.
Whether you like Merlino or not, they wqs absolutely no reason for the feds to claim he had some kmd of affair. That was a below the belt move and a scumbag thing to do. They pulled the same shit in Gotti jr trial with Alite claiming he had an affair with Victoria. The feds should be held to much higher standards. They can certainly go after merlino for crimes but why the need to humiliate his wife and children?? Because the feds can be scumbags.

No, I'm just a well-adjusted adult who was raised better than to admire and laud two-bit criminals who have never worked a day in their lives.

What are you, 35 years old, and you worship Joey Merlino like he's a celebrity or something?

LOL.

You must be one of those dorks George Anastasia wrote about who had pictures of Joey Merlino covering his bedroom wall when he was a teenager.

Please tell that story about Ray Wags throwing a stink bomb in a toilet for the 14th time or that time you and your friends went to a bar to spy on obscure Philly mobsters again.

Joey (and the three or four guys he has watching his back every time he picks a fight with somebody) would make me piss my pants, yes, but they wouldn't squeeze free drinks out of me like dumbass marks like you.

Let's face it. If you ever fulfilled your dream of being like one of these guys, you would rat the second you were arrested.

Pussy.

P.S. How am I a keyboard warrior? I've never played up my own toughness or started fights here, you beak nosed greasy twat.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/16/18 03:55 PM

I stand by what i posted, you have no idea what it would be like to be in my situation which was more than "loosing a few bucks to the local bookie". I never whined to anyone like a junior high jerkoff. This is an OC forum so I figured it would be interesting to post some real life OC stuff to show a lot of these fanboys its not all fun. In one year I lost my best friend, had my first child, got arrested and lost my business and developed a gambling problem and lost like 60k. I am not ashamed of my post and it was nice to get a lot of the responses ans oms that i did. You seem to be mistaking me for another type of person, im a prettt humble guy but I doubt you would say such things to my face. You got pretty bent out of shape I said thats some "gay shit". Im sorry i offended you if you are a homosexual. I am not biased against anyones sexual orientation, to each his own. I also was not calling out anyone in regards to me being mistaken for another poster, if I came off as harsh I did not intend too. Maybe you are not a millenial but im sure you know what i mean as far as times changing and it being unacceptable now to say "gay shit" "fag" "retarded" etc...

Posted By: bostonattorney

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/16/18 10:30 PM

So I haven’t heard any updates on a verdict. My experience with juries and verdicts is that I am completely unable to predict what a jury is going to do. There are all these theories like, if the jury comes back guilty they won’t look at your client before the verdict is announced.

The one tried and true way to predict a verdict is to watch the bailiff/court officer where they stand when the verdict is being announced. If it’s guilty they will stand directly behind your client ready to snap the cuffs on if they aren’t already in custody.

In terms of mistrials/hung juries I think it’s worse to the defense than to the prosecutor. Reason is that the defenses only real advantage is surprise and on a retrial you already shot your bullets once so the prosecutor can fashion their entire case around your defense.

My bet is that they are hung. My bet is also that the United States retries this case.

Look I seen some shit in my day and don’t think for one minute that the Government plays fair I have seen them destroy people that are just on the fringe of the life that really did not know anything and when they destroy them they do it publicly and financially and in some cases generationally .

I have seen them do it to blood relatives also same deal and not for doing anything illegal just for standing their ground and once they ruin you it’s not like a newspaper retraction it’s for good.

I have a relative in the Government and trust me they know what they do and they don’t care I seen them ruin people lives over not wanting to lose overtime from a case.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/17/18 09:17 PM

The longer this jury deliberates and can't find a verdict means Joey either gets a hung jury or is found innocent. Juries don't tend to go this long after notes from the judge to keep going only to have a guilty verdict. The longer they deliberate the better Merlino has to feel. Even if the feds re-try this case his odds of beating it go even higher. With Rubeo their star witness, his lawyer will just find more and more ways to go after him and make him look terrible like he did in this case. Rubeo was a horrible star witness and will more than likely NEVER get a conviction of Merlino.

diximafia, is your expectation of a hung jury or acquittal based on statistics? I'm relatively new to this and I'm not criticizing or arguing, just curious. I hope he's acquitted, mostly because I think prosecutors are untrustworthy.

With Rubeo their star witness, his lawyer will just find more and more ways to go after him and make him look terrible like he did in this case. Rubeo was a horrible star witness and will more than likely NEVER get a conviction of Merlino.


They are never going to get a conviction? Come on man, use your head. He has already done major time. He is very high profile and the Feds hate him. He has no sustainable rackets and is always looking for the quick buck. The Feds are never going to stop going after him. He is going to expose himself again and he is going to get indicted again. Eventually the orange guy or Freddy Krueger is going to have to take his spot.

Stop trying to be like scrawny Joey. He is a scumbag who comes from scumbag stock. His father was too drunk to be under boss and his uncle was a rat. He and his wife are trash who would bang anything that walks. Typical Philly trash.

Why do you take it so personal? Calling him and his wife trash and the other things you say make it sound like you knew him personally and have an issue with him, or are obsessed with him. I thought they had him set up for a conviction but after reading about the witnesses testimony and the conflicting evidence I think he deserves an aquital.

It doesn't happen that the jury will go from one way (hung jury) to swing to guilty just because the judge tells them to keep trying. The Feds did not make a great case with a solid witness.

As long as Rubeo is their "star witness" they'll never get a conviction in this case. I didn't say he'll never get nailed because eventually he will, but I seriously doubt it will be this case.

Hoodlum haha just the superbowl ( won 700) and all star last night . I only laid like $600 to win the 4k, hit Lebron MVP prop at +1200. I saw that and couldnt resist, figured he had the better squad and would be obvious MVP if they won. Bet $250 on that and won a nickle on both the 1st and 2H. Besides that im totally on ice, the urge is gone I barely think about it. I do miss playing poker but im bannned from everywhere in PA I never have the time or energy to make the hour drive to AC. I spend all my time working or with family. Biggie im sorry you lost buddy. I saw the new format with the teams and was just thinking team Lebron and Under, was a crapshoot though..I just got lucky.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/20/18 03:38 AM

Always good to lay minimal cash for a nice hit, claw some of that back. In retrospect, man, that Lebron mvp number was a great play at that number...Stay on sidelines and take a small shot in March madness , Vegas, . I have done decent since mid January in ncaa but keeping at it every nite fries the mind, as I’m sure you know.

ok in nyc mob trials allie persico, and vinny georgeous both had hung jurys on murder. they were retried and convicted. jr gotti had like 10 trials all hung the gov was flying in prosecutors from all over the place to nail him then finally gave up. but those were murder trials. only recent case i could think of hung jury was joe ligambi and his nephew in philly. scoops licata was aquited but the jury was hung on joe n george. they were never retried. i thought they had uncle joe dead to rites on extorting the joker poker vending machine guy. were they forced him to sell the company for the low. can anyone think of a mob trial that was hung besides murders. they always retry the hits. i wouldnt doubt it if florida indicts him like they did jr gotti. remember he kept getting hung jurys in nyc so they indicted him in florida but his lawyers and the judge sent it to ny again. bet theyll do it to merlino.

The case doesn't exist without Rubeo, and as was said above, the guy is a dumpster fire. No matter how many times they try it you gotta call Rubeo, and Rubeo will get eaten alive every time by Eddie Jacobs. Maybe the feds will cut their losses on this one.

Can't handle that NY cold. Been in Florida too long.

But yes, I agree with what you're saying. But have you seen his legal team? He'll need to sink his teeth back into organized crime to afford his legal fees and prepare for when the feds hit him with Round Two. Also, he's a hopeless gambler and a big spender and, by all accounts, appears to be pretty hard up on cash.

I was recently speaking with an old Ducktown local in person in AC the other weekend (no not Serpiente) and he told me some interesting things don’t know if they’re true or not:

He said that Nicky Jr dated his cousin back in the day and was an entitled dick to everyone. He proceeds to tell me that the only person in the world he ever saw Nicky Jr nice to was his half sister! I go half sister?!? He said that Nicky Sr had a daughter with a mistress that not many people know about?

The guy also told me that when he was growing up in Ducktown when Nicky Sr was living there he used to rent a few buses and take all the kids of Ducktown to Six Flags for the day.....

Again don’t know what’s true or not just relaying the conversation I had with an old time Ducktown Guy I know and talk to occasionally....

@Dante- that's interesting about Nicky Sr having a daughter with his mistress. Never heard that before, but then again that doesn't mean it's not true just because it isn't common knowledge. Not people know this, but Joey Merlino actually has a third daughter (not Nicolette or Sophia who are his daughters with his current wife Debbie). Back in the late 80's he was dating one of the waitress girls at the Warwick Hotel in Center City, which at the time had a disco club in it and was a big hangout for mob guys/Scarfo guys and associates and wannabes. There was a blond girl that worked there named Cindy or Cynthia and Joey got her pregnant and she had the daughter. She grew up in NJ and still goes back to the shore a lot, but nowadays mostly lives in St. Barts. Doesn't look like she works and by all accounts it seems like she lives pretty well so I'm guessing that Joey supports her. He recently started hanging out with her alot as well and she's been ingratiated with Joey's whole group, etc. Debbie and the girls seem to have accepted her as well.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/24/18 12:50 PM

Dante: Many have said that about Jr. and of course you are going to find those , he was picked on at young age just because his father was a made guy.

Then as he got older he did carry a chip or a bit of ignorance “ when your father is a mob boss and you grow up around that man your going to have that .

I am surprised they did not grow up to be killers .

But the kid had a normal temperament toward others as far as I could see and I was around hie entire life ,but of course he was a child when I was adult and I did not go to school with him.

He and Mark had a very bad time at school from outsiders ,but they all had friends I could name them to this day they did same shit as every other kid outside of growing up with who they did.

Nick sr having a child is always a possible and I can find out very soon , but she was not that young and very much not the mother type at the time.

But you never know and I will find out but I think you got someone who does not like the family and there are many of those.


But here is some truth Philip has a daughter and she is and has been raised around here and if you ever see her you can tell to a T she looks like him big time ,and has been in touch with him most of the time.

Belmont where did Nicky Jr. live and operate out of up in your area? Belleville I've heard from a few people? It just boggles my mind he must have been such a fish out of water in your area. Your area is like night and day compared to Atlantic City, I just cant picture how Nicky Jr. got things running up there. I'm baffled at it....
Posted By: Belmont

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 02/24/18 06:25 PM

Yes.. belleville. Kind of close to rt 21.
He would come to the newark area to relay messages and talk biz with the north jersey crew. He moved up here after the shooting. His father asked the north jersey crew to keep an eye on him.
It wasnt til later that he moved to the lucchese. This was done after a bunch of north jersey bruno/ scarfo guys got arrested in the very early 90’s. Not sure if nicky jr was arrested, i forget. I think “buck” Piccolo was calling the shots for a while. Patty specs lambed it after georgie fresolone flipped and the crew went away. patty died of cancer. Either way, scarfo protected his son by having him under the luccheses. You technically need permission from the commision for one family to clip a guy from another.
Nicky jr was up for a while in belleville from what i remember. Personally ,i think he got a raw deal from the feds. No way he should of got that amount of time. I also think his fathers declining health and amuso’s dwindling influence contributed to him being demoted. Im sure philly had something to do with it. The north jersey guys did not want to kick up to a guy 2 hours away.
Contrary to what some say, i dont think amuso is relevent.

Some one posted a cool article about scarfo jr and his computer skills. Guy was smart talks about his office in newark after taking over a gambinos guys book operation who was going to jail. He couldnt have been that hated if the gambinos gave him a big book in 1999. Read somewhere thats the year steve crea made him after putting it off for years.

Nicky jr was up for a while in belleville from what i remember. Personally ,i think he got a raw deal from the feds. No way he should of got that amount of time. I also think his fathers declining health and amuso’s dwindling influence contributed to him being demoted. Im sure philly had something to do with it. The north jersey guys did not want to kick up to a guy 2 hours away.
Contrary to what some say, i dont think amuso is relevent.

It wasnt til later that he moved to the lucchese. This was done after a bunch of north jersey bruno/ scarfo guys got arrested in the very early 90’s. Not sure if nicky jr was arrested, i forget.

True Belmont I and five others were on his list at the hospital after the shooting beside his blood family and this is when I lost touch with him .

But is was not long before I got with him at a Luke construction site in south jersey and found out he was under Luke’s umbrella,at this point I did not know he was made because we never talked business “just like it should be,the rest is history.


Sorry about the double post never did that before.

i wonder where all the speculation that the jury was polled 10 to 2 or 11-1. ive never read that the judge asked for a poll. seems like capeci ran with it but i didnt see it anywhere else. if there hung on all 4 counts why would the judge want to now on any single count. weird.

im going against the grain. they wont waste there time an money on a philly boss in nyc. was a mistake from the start they basically said themselves. let the dirt lay. florida or phjilly will get him if he keeps at it. they must have there eyes on the big guy in nyc or the country

From Capeci:

Sources say that a handful of jurors who hung around and spoke to prosecutors and defense lawyers after the mistrial was declared, said they were evenly split on the main racketeering charge, but deadlocked 10-2 for conviction on the health care scam and 9-3 for conviction on the illegal gambling charges.

If the Feds don’t get Skinny on this case Rubeo will be left out to hang ! The Feds have left guys out to hang that have brought down most of a crime family.

The job Rubeo did they are probably sticking it to him now !

The smart rats got out quick and took the Feds for all they could.

yep. rubeo got a few agents in hot water or forced to retire early. they wont be asking for time served. he'll probaly get 5 6 yr around the time he would have got on the original drug charge he flipped for. i wonder if the judge is seeing if he can retry the case with the genovese capo onfrio im yguessing thats the hold up. what else could it be , merlino not gonna ask for a deal after he seen the jury didnt believe rubeo.

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 03/11/18 12:47 PM

The only way Merlino takes plea deal is if it is is it too good to walk away from
I.E. 18 months
And they cannot use this guilty plea against him in a future RICO Trial.

I think Michael Persico's plea was something similar.

All those tapes would help Joey Big-time in a 2nd trial. If they retry and those tapes are included and Joey can manage to not antigonjze the jury (allegedly), he’ll walk

Wonder if they made some deal they wont use it as a predicate act in a future rico. You got a defense dream team im sure theyll work it out. I dont even remeber his role in the gambling was it him telling guys he wants a taste or something like that.

That Joey took the deal for 24.months
Dropped the fraud

And plead to gambling
Posted By: Serpiente

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 03/30/18 02:32 PM

He first found out about this case years ago when in may or June of 16 I think Eddie J went down to tell him about the whole thing and I bet they were saying two years then.

But the money line after this meeting is when Skinny was going back and forth and Philly guys were going down to put this money for Eddie together.

Pretty sure this is when many of the family was being changed a couple guys were moved to Skipper and others were moved up to administration spots because we have been hearing things about Lance, George, Dominic and others getting a bump.

And I am sure a good few were made at this time.

So Skinny may not be rich but he sure goes through some cash and for some reason I think this will change all that .
Posted By: dixiemafia

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 03/30/18 04:29 PM

I wouldn't expect it to be too much considering he already fought this and won basically. I don't see him serving much if any time at all.
Posted By: Serpiente

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 03/30/18 10:24 PM

Eddie Jacobs is a great criminal attorney hands down !!

Skinny is slick and knows how to mingle and keep his words to a minimal so he can not get trapped unless of course he is directly involved with the racket but I think he keeps that real close.

Very lucky

This was Merlino’s concern before the trial so it probably will get included in this plea deal.

Posted By: BensonHURST

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 04/03/18 06:12 PM

For him to take the deal they would have had to sweeten in a little and remove his biggest concerns.
I mean he did beat them.
Not totally but of there were a belt it would be in his corner today.

I get most wanted to convict
However, he only needs one juror on his side to win again.

They very rarely if ever come back for a 3 trial
Especially becaus they did not want to try it the first time and if he can get one juror a second time.

The feds need all 13
Joey needs 1

While.house arrest appears attractive
I believe he is more worried about the next case which will no doubt have him facing 20-30 years.

I would tho k given the option to pick either
House arrest or the feds not being able to use the case against him in the future
He would choose the 2nd part

I agree if not that he has a loyal following he should not be talking to anyone he does not trust 1000%

He di dthe right thing in Philly stepped away he is giving his orders to someone and they are relaying them.
So he is protected

He shoul stay in FL bring down two guys that are from his past and build something small through them.

Even better he has this Millionares that pay him to hang out with a mob

Open legit businesses if he could afford to

Why is he taking thiese cnances if he does not have to
???

Makes no sense
Posted By: Serpiente

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 04/04/18 11:23 AM

Because he is a uneducated street guy that did not get it when his father uncle and loads of good dudes could have learned from but instead he wanted to be in the bar and at the end of a straw when he was coming up.

He is / was as lucky as any gangster ever , but he did not get business!!! other then street businesses and in order to run a family you need blue collar and white collar knowledge ..... look at Gotti and Castellano ..... it ‘s mandatory to run a successful Family.
Posted By: BensonHURST

Re: Philly-Skinny Joey Trial - 04/04/18 01:48 PM

Honestly I can't see how he is good for the family.
You have the feds now digging into these murders from 20-30 years ago.

That if he wasn't so high profile that might not be happening..

Honestly the only good he beings in.
For attracting young blood that look up to him and don't know any better.

Like locally here in NYC in the late 80's early 90's everyone wanted to be John Gotti
Some guys were so obsessed they would do anything

He was the poster child for the gangster every young kid from the Italian ghetto's wanted to be.

The problem is it is double edged

I am sure there is no shortage of recruits young guys in the streets of Philly that want to be the next Skinny, until they have 10 years+ thrown in their face and then it's like MOMMY...
