More Time & No 50 For Gotti

More Time & No 50 For Gotti

The trial of Murder Inc. head honcho Irv Gotti and his brother Chris, who are facing charges of laundering drug money, has been pushed back a day. The Gottis’ lawyers needed more time to prepare their arguments against former Inc. employee Donnell Nichols, who was slated to be the first witness to take the stand, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The presiding judge also disallowed the prosecution’s request to use the 2000 shooting of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in their opening statements. Prosecutors hope to use a purported “confession” by Chris Gotti to Drug Enforcement Administration agents in 2003. According to thesmokinggun.com, Lorenzo said that reputed drug lord Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff was granted a “free soundtrack” for “Crime Partners,” a movie McGriff produced. At the time, Chris said that the soundtrack was worth $1 million, an inadvertent confession of money laundering according to the feds. Opening arguments are now set to take place Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.
