Bonanno underboss to plead guilty today

The reputed underboss of the Bonanno crime family is scheduled to plead guilty today to racketeering charges that grew out of secret tapes made by the ex-husband of a “Mob Wives” star, according to court records.
Nicholas “Nicky Mouth” Santora, 70, the crime family’s alleged second-in-command, is expected to appear before a Brooklyn federal judge and admit his role in a loan-sharking shakedown.
Last year, Hector “Junior” Pagan, the gangster ex-husband of “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano, recorded more than 70 conversations with Santora that centered on talk about Mafia business, officials say.
Pagan is now a Drug Enforcement Administration informant who wore a hidden microphone to help snare several other high-ranking mobsters during a joint FBI-DEA probe.
