Bonanno associate pleads guilty in $26 million loansharking case


Robert Pisani (c.) being taken into custody on a new assault case outside the Brooklyn federal courthouse on May 4, 2017. A Queens deli owner tangled in a mob loansharking case pleaded guilty Friday.
Robert Pisani, 44, was part of a decades-long wiseguy outfit that raked in $26 million, federal prosecutors said.
The reputed Bonanno crime family associate copped to collection of unlawful gambling debts in Brooklyn federal court.
The plea closes one case for Pisani, but he's got another to go.


 
Robert Pisani (c.) being taken into custody on a new assault case outside the Brooklyn federal courthouse on May 4, 2017.
Police arrested him in May for allegedly groping a worker at his Broad Channel deli and putting her hand down his pants.
Pisani plans to fight that case.
His lawyer, Seth Ginsberg, told the Daily News his client was “satisfied with the equitable result” on the federal case and Pisani “looks forward to putting this behind him.”
As for the forcible touching charge, Ginsberg said Pisani's an innocent man, adding, “we're going to trial.”
Pisani and 11 other men were charged in the loansharking case. He and three other men have pleaded out, so far.
