Appeals Court Affirms Mafia Cops Convictions

A federal appeals court has affirmed the conviction of the so-called Mafia Cops who were nailed for eight murders on behalf of Lucchese crime family underboss Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso while "serving" with the NYPD as reported by The Associated Press
In an opinion issued Friday, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found "no merit" to the appeal by "Mafia cops" Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa. Eppolito had claimed he was denied effective counsel. Caracappa argued he was convicted on faulty evidence.
The Mafia Cops were sentenced last year to life+ in prison.
