Vincent Basciano Trail Update

Lawyers for Vincent Basciano have asked the court to permit him increased visits at the Brooklyn MDC. In a letter to Judge Nicholas Garaufis, Basciano's lawyers are asking that he be allowed a visit with the mother of his youngest son Anthony every other week and that his family be allowed visits on alternate weeks. As an alternate, it was also suggested that he have a visit for two hours with the child's mother, Debra Kalb, once a month. Basciano’s visits with his family are critical to the development of Basciano’s mitigation case, if there is ever consideration for the death penalty in his upcoming trial, noted in "King Of The Godfathers." Specifically, Basciano’s ability to parent from prison is mitigation that a jury would be permitted to consider in deciding whether to impose the death penalty, the lawyers noted. Garaufis has yet to announce a ruling.
