Reputed South Florida Mob Boss Appeals Fraud Conviction

Reputed South Florida Mob Boss 'Vincent Artuso' Appeals Fraud Conviction

he man considered to be the head of the Gambino crime family’s operations in South Florida has asked a federal appeals court to overturn his nine-year prison sentence for real estate fraud.
Vincent Artuso claims prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to convict him of fraud and racketeering charges involving a lengthy scam that cost ADT Security Services Inc. at least $11 million. Federal prosecutors counter that the evidence was sufficient to convict Artuso of the fraud charges.
Prosecutors said Artuso was a “made member” of the Gambino family and has been linked to the infamous hit that led to John Gotti’s rise to power.
