Bonanno Capo Cops Plea On Loansharking Charge

A high-ranking Bonanno mobster pleaded guilty in Brooklyn Federal Court Monday to loansharking.
Reputed capo Joseph (Sammy) Sammartino admitted that he conspired with other wiseguys to collect a high-interest loan from a victim identified only as "Sal from Staten Island."
Sammartino, 55, of New Jersey, faces up to two years in prison when he is sentenced in October by Federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis. Prosecutors say Sammartino is a member of the crime family's ruling panel.
