Michael Persico the son of jailed Colombo crime family boss Carmine “The Snake” Persico wants to rip of his guilty plea on loansharking charges. He pleaded guilty to loansharking over two years ago in a deal which gave him immunity from being prosecuted on several possible murder charges. But now Perisco claims the feds are breaching the agreement which has him facing 37 to 46 months in prison at sentencing.
Now the mob scion doesn’t like the idea that he could be facing upwards of five years. Prosecutors are arguing that the deal was already agreed upon and he is now stuck with it. Perhaps he should be gracious for such a sweet deal to begin with considering he could face more then 20 years if he was convicted at trial on murder conspiracy and extortion charges.
