Joseph 'Skinny Joey' Merlino sentenced to two years in prison

Joseph 'Skinny Joey' Merlino quipped outside court Wednesday that President Donald Trump was right to suggest cooperators or 'flippers' should be outlawed. He chuckled despite needing to surrender himself in 45 days.

Merlino was arrested in 2016 with four others in a crackdown on an East Coast syndicate that prosecutors say committed crimes including extortion, loan-sharking, casino-style gambling, sports gambling, credit card fraud and health care fraud.
