Richard Sinde is described by his own lawyer as a degenerate gambler.

Reputed Bonanno associate Richard Sinde was put back in the pokey after prosecutors revealed he got pinched in the Bronx with pot and a pair of  brass knuckles
 “The mere fact that someone with your client’s history is foolish enough to get arrested indicates to me a kind of cavalier attitude about the situation,” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Melissa Jackson said to Sinde’s attorney
Sinde was first scooped up in a mob crackdown involving nine members of a Bonanno crew led by capo  Nicholas “Nicky Mouth” Santora  who were charged with a long  list of crimes linked to the Mafia
