(Teflon) Gotti Jr. pleads not guilty of U.S. murder charges

Well if this guy beats the Feds again he will be looked upon by millions as a hero and will put a damper on any big cases brought by the government with murderers and drug dealers as the basis for their cases. I say not guilty again.

Gotti, 44, was arrested on August 5 in New York after he and five other men were indicted by a federal grand jury in Tampa. Federal prosecutors said they were members of New York’s Gambino crime family who were trying to expand to Tampa.

Gotti did not speak during the five-minute court hearing. His attorney, Charles Carnesi, entered the plea for him.

The trial is scheduled to take place in Tampa but no date has been set. Gotti remains in federal custody and could get life in prison if he is convicted.

The indictment says he conspired to traffic cocaine and murder three men between 1988 and 1991, killings it says were aimed at creating and maintaining “fear and dread.”
