John “Jackie the Nose” D’Amico

John (Jackie the Nose) D’Amico started out in the New York Mob as a bookie/soldier under Don Carlo Gambino.  The “nose” rose in rank to street boss in the John  Gotti regime and is currently regarded by the feds as the head honcho of the Gambino Mob

RICH CALDER for the post writes The reputed boss of the Gambino crime family was sentenced today to three years in prison after plea-bargaining to an assault charge in a 1989 murder plot against a suspected informant. John “Jackie the Nose” D’Amico, 74, received the maximum sentence allowable. He had admitted to conspiring to commit an assault against Frederick Weiss, a sanitation exec who had run afoul of then-mob boss John Gotti. According to papers filed in Manhattan federal court, D’Amico allowed co-defendant Joseph Watts, a reputed high-ranking Gambino associate, to recruit members of his crew for a hit on Weiss.

Authorities believe Weiss was instead murdered by New Jersey’s DeCavalcante mob as a favor to the Dapper Don. To read source  Click here: Reputed Gambino boss sentenced to three years in the slammer – related Click here: Reputed Gambino boss John “Jackie the Nose” cuts three-year plea bargain –
