John Gotti's grandson dodges jail time

This “Growing Up Gotti” alum appears to have a touch of Teflon.
Carmine Gotti Agnello Jr., grandson of the late Dapper Don, John Gotti, dodged prison time Wednesday by copping a plea deal for operating an illegal scrapyard.
Queens criminal court Judge Gia Morris agreed to reduce charges against the 32-year-old scion of the late Gambino boss, to a misdemeanor in exchange for a $1,000 fine and a forfeiture of $4,605 in ill-gotten gains.
“Do you acknowledge that you…operated a salvage pool that was not registered with the appropriate authorities?” Morris asked.
“Yes,” said Agnello, his hair tied back in a bun.
Outside court, the son of Victoria Gotti said, “No words. I just want to get back to work.”
His lawyer Stephen Mahler says his client is a legitimate businessman who was caught in between licenses.
“His license had expired and he’d already been approved for a new one,” Mahler said, claiming that Agnello simply didn’t want to take the case to trial to prove that.
Agnello’s license lapsed in December 2016 and he was arrested in July 2018.
Agnello applied for a new license in June — but later withdrew the application, according to a DMV investigator.
The mob scion’s dad, who is also named Carmine Agnello, was arrested in 2015 for running a stolen-car scrap-metal scam in Ohio.
