Another Philly made man plans to plead guilty

Marty Angelina is getting out while he can.
Not out of jail. Out of the latest mob racketeering indictment.
The "made" member of the Philadelphia Mafia who got pinched in last year's roundup of reputed boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi and his top lieutenants, has had a change of heart. He's expected to enter a guilty plea Wednesday morning in federal court, sources tell the Daily News.
Angelina's attorney, Jack McMahon, did not immediately return phone calls, but sources say Angelina won't be testifying against his pals in the gambling, extortion and loan-sharking trial set to begin in October.
The plea is likely similar to what mobster Gaeton Lucibello agreed to last week. Lucibello, 59, admitted to assisting in shaking down a bookie and operating two illegal video-poker machines. He faces 51 to 63 months in prison and isn't cooperating with the government, either.
Angelina, 50, who is tight with Joey Merlino and was once described by a federal prosecutor as a "bully running with a gang of misfits," served six years in prison on a 2001 racketeering conviction and was jailed twice after his release for probation violations. He made headlines in 2009 for spitting on a Margate cop and pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.
Although Lucibello and Angelina aren't talking, the feds have flipped Louis "Bent Finger Lou" Monacello, an associate of jailed mobster George Borgesi.
Monacello, who was targeted in the "Operation Delco Nostra" investigation, has agreed to testify for the government in the current federal case. He was recorded telling informant Frank "Frankie the Fixer" DiGiacomo that Angelina was the "most hated m-----f----- in the mob" and offering $2,000 to have him "beat up really bad."
