Hector Pagan Jr wont testify this week due to slew of new mob charges against Bonanno underboss

The gangster ex-husband of the “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano won’t be taking the witness stand this week to testify against a ranking wiseguy after all.
Hector “Junior” Pagan was expected to dish the dirt on his former mob colleague, Bonanno crime family underboss Nicholas “Nicky Mouth” Santora.
But in a surprise move, Brooklyn federal prosecutors have just hit Santora with a series of new mob racketeering charges — courtesy of an FBI informant who taped more than 70 conversations with the Bonanno underboss.
Apprised of the new development by prosecutor Jack Dennehy, Judge Carol Amon postponed Santora’s trial to give his defense attorney more time to prepare.
That means Pagan’s debut as a government witness is delayed.
Pagan, a former Bonanno associate, secretly switched sides last summer while filming the “Mob Wives” series, put on a hidden recorder and taped conversations with both Santora and Renee’s Bonanno wiseguy father, 71-year-old Anthony “TG” Graziano.
