Colombo Soldier Facing 14 Months then Deportation To Italy

Reputed Colombo soldier Sebastiano "Sebby" Saracino faces 14 months in prison and then deportation back to Italy after pleading guilty yesterday "to concealing a slew of crimes – including disposing of a murder victim whacked in his Brooklyn home – on his immigration application" as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "In 1995, mob associate Richard Greaves was fatally shot in Saracino's basement and transported in Saracino's Jeep Wrangler to an industrial park in Long Island, where the corpse was buried in a freshly dug grave, according to court papers." The short stuff guy was stoic in entering his plea as reported by Mitchel Maddux for the New York Post: "Saracino, clad in a black suit, sat expressionless as the judge detailed his fate. 'You understand that you will be deported as a result of this guilty plea,' Judge Brian Cogan said. 'Yes, your honor,' Saracino replied."
The FBI has not yet found Greaves's remains. In December 2008 Sebby's brother Dino Saracino was named as a co-defendant in an indictment against some alleged Colombo boys according to a press release by the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York: "A twenty-four count superseding indictment charging members and associates of the Colombo organized crime family of La Cosa Nostra (the 'Colombo family') – including former acting boss Thomas Gioeli, former consigliere Joel "Joe Waverly" Cacace, captain Dino Calabro, and soldier Dino Saracino – with murder and racketeering was unsealed in federal court in Brooklyn. * * * Specifically, the indictment charges defendants Cacace, Calabro, and Saracino with the 1997 murder of NYPD Officer Ralph Dols; defendants Gioeli, Calabro, and Saracino with the 1999 murder of Colombo underboss William "Wild Bill" Cutolo; defendant Gioeli with the 1995 murder of Richard Greaves; and defendant Calabro with the murder of Carmine Gargano in 1994."
Apparently, Dino Calabro has wised up and now is playing for Team America as reported by Jerry Capeci for The Huffington Post: "One of the new federal songbirds is capo Dino "Big Dino" Calabro, who was a triggerman in Dols's killing and who has been rumored for months to have been seeking a deal."
