The 'Dumb Don' Peter Gotti seeks compassionate release

The 'Teflon Don' John Gotti was caged in 1993, and his son John Gotti Jr. took over the reins of the crime family until 1999 when he too was jailed. The mantle then fell to Peter Gotti whose own brothers were reluctant to have him become a made man because of his lack of intelligence. Even as a child Peter Gotti was considered stupid, and that reputation grew as years passed.

He has served 17 years of his 25-year racketeering sentence. His lawyer says he's dying. Gotti reportedly suffers from an enlarged prostate, gastric reflux and early onset dementia.
