Imprisoned mobster granted relocation delay

A federal judge has agreed to recommend that officials let an admitted New England mobster answer state charges in Rhode Island before he's relocated to federal prison on an unrelated case.

Online court records show the request from Alfred "Chippy" Scivola (skee-VOH'-lah) Jr. was granted Wednesday.

The 71-year-old Scivola sought a 60-day delay before he's relocated to federal prison so he can resolve an unrelated criminal case in Rhode Island state court. He is already imprisoned at a private prison.

Scivola was sentenced this month to three years and 10 months in federal prison for his role in the shakedown of Rhode Island strip clubs.

State prosecutors allege Scivola participated in an illegal gambling ring. A spokeswoman for the Rhode Island attorney general's office says Scivola has not been arraigned.
