The infamous and notorious Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano got his wish to be released early. He was granted leave from prison 5 years earlier than his maximum sentence. The 72-year-old “RAT” who sang like a canary to help bring down John Gotti aka “Dapper Don” and “Teflon Don” in exchange for a 1991 plea deal.
He was released on September 18th according to Arizona’s DOC. Sammy will be on federal parole for the rest of his life. Why is he not in witness protection? He will be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his days. He should fear for his life and his families now that he is on the “streets”.
Karen Gravano his daughter spoke to her dad, she told the Post. “He is happy to be out after the last 17 1/2 years in prison. He’s in good health and good spirits and he is anxious to move forward in the next phase of his life.” Karen is very happy her wiseguy father is out of prison. Karen said, “I’ve been fighting for this day the whole time he’s been in prison.” There is no comment on if he will stay in Arizona. He took up a hobby of sketching while incarcerated.
The former Gambino underboss pleaded guilty to running close to 50 people, 500k a week ecstasy ring in 2001, and was sentenced to 20yrs in prison. He got a sweetheart of a deal where he was sent prison for 5years for admitting to 19 murders in exchange for helping the feds take down 39 mobsters including his former boss and buddy the Teflon Don.
The consigliere took the stand and ratted out secrets of the Five Families during Gotti’s trial. His testimony put 39 wiseguys and associates in prison.
After a short stay in prison and shorter one in witness protection, he ended up in Tempe AZ and lived under the name Jimmy Moran.
While he lived there he was selling ecstasy and was installing pools. He escaped his own death from nonother than Peter Gotti the late godfather’s brother, he sent hitmen to take him out.
Well, Sammy the Bull, you best be watching your back, try using a different name, no Italian, try a different nationality.
Good luck in your new ventures. Oh and watch it because there are rat traps set up.
