Roberto Settineri, the Miami Beach, FL wine merchant who prosecutors claim is an intermediary between the Gambino crime family and the Santa Maria de Gesu clan from Cosa Nostra or the Sicilian Mafia, pleaded guilty today "to a conspiracy charge of scheming to shred financial records for Ponzi con man Scott Rothstein" as reported by Jay Weaver for the Miami Herald.  Rothstein was a politically connected Fort Lauderdale, FL attorney sentenced to fifty years in prison last June for running a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme which involved using his firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler as a front to sell phony legal settlements to investors.
