Jack Bonventre a reputed acting captain in the Bonanno crime family has been on house arrest since January wants special treatment. He was busted in a mafia sweep which included Vincent Araro accused of having a part in the Lufthansa heist among others. His attorney has petitioned the court to allow him a day trip to attend a Sullivan County Equestrian Show that his daughter has a part in. Usually these types of request are limited to important life events like funerals , births, or even graduations. His attorney said that his client should be allowed to attend because he is his daughters #1 fan and has been forced to miss off of her summer appearances.
Prosecutors actually agreed originally to the request then had a change or heart when officials argued about the extravagant allowance it would take. They then pushed for a denial by Judge Allyne Ross stating that his house arrest conditions should only be altered for more important life events and a horse show did not qualify. Judge Ross eventually agreed with prosecutors and denied the mobsters request.
