Son of Vinny Gorgeous set to join his brothers and father in prison for weed trafficking

Vincent Basciano Jr., 32, was busted along with his brothers for taking part in an operation that shipped weed from California to New York.

The son of an imprisoned Mafia boss will be joining his father and brothers in the big house.
Vincent Basciano Jr., 32, pleaded guilty Wednesday to taking part in a massive marijuana trafficking enterprise.

His father, the ruthless but well-coiffed Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano, a former Bonanno crime family head, is serving a life sentence on murder convictions at a supermax prison in Colorado.

Vincent Jr.’s plea deal with the feds calls for 46 to 57 months in prison.

Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano was convicted of ordering the 2004 murder of Randolph "Randy" Pizzolo.

He was busted last year along with his brothers Stephen Basciano, 29, and Joseph Basciano, 27, who admitted guilt separately in February under similar plea agreements.

The trio ran a Bronx drug route in a ring that shipped weed from California to New York.

Vincent Jr. is scheduled to be sentenced July 18 and is free on bail until then.
