Robert DeBello

Gang Land’s Jerry Capeci  writes,

Two Genovese gangsters copped sweet plea deals last week calling for prison terms of five years rather than contest murder conspiracy charges at trial and face possible life sentences if convicted in the 2014 rubout plot.

Mr. Capeci writes,  Robert (Old Man) DeBello and 36-year old associate Ryan (Baldy) Ellis pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge stemming from a bizarre murder-for-hire plot in which Genovese gangsters from Queens hired Crips gangstas from the Bronx to whack tough guy mob associate Joseph Bonelli in his Whitestone, Queens home.

For Old Man DeBello it’s a welcome relief: Last month the 75-year-old wiseguy from Queens had his bail rudely revoked by Manhattan Federal Judge Katherine Forrest, an act which helped win her last year’s Grinch Who Stole Christmas Award.
