Michael Persico -- son of reputed Colombo boss Carmine "The Snake" Persico and brother of reputed ex-acting boss Alphonse "Allie Boy" Persico -- is getting sprung from jail on $5 million bond "after the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that another judge had made a procedural error at Persico's earlier bail hearing" as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News.  Persico was indicted last March on federal racketeering charges for allegedly participating in a kickback and extortion scheme involving debris removal at the World Trade Center ground zero site.
