Don Carlo GambinoImage via WikipediaRoberto Settineri, a Miami Beach, FL wine merchant who prosecutors claim is an intermediary between the Gambino crime family and the Santa Maria de Gesu clan from Cosa Nostra or the Sicilian Mafia, is set to plead guilty following his arrest last March for allegedly conspiring to launder money and obstruct justice at the behest of Scott Rothstein in an FBI sting as reported by The Associated Press.  Rothstein was a politically connected Fort Lauderdale, FL attorney sentenced to fifty years in prison last June for running a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme which involved using his firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler as a front to sell phony legal settlements to investors.
