Kevin McTaggart - Danny Greene's top lieutenant

Kevin McTaggart was the right hand man of Cleveland's Danny Greene. Attorneys for the former mob enforcer continued their push to get him released from a life sentence. McTaggart was sentenced to life in prison in 1983. He has served 38 years in prison and has an exemplary record. “While these years of confinement have been difficult, it has been a journey of reflection, remorse, sorrow, inspiration, discovery, friendship, love, blessings and hard-won wisdom,” McTaggart wrote. Federal prosecutors oppose McTaggart’s compassionate release.
An ex-prosecutor and the prison warden urge his release despite a violent past that includes the ruthless killings of six people. Now 65, McTaggart remains in federal prison in Milan, Michigan.

After Greene was killed in a 1977 car bombing, McTaggart aligned with other underworld figures: Joey Gallo, Angelo Lonardo, Carmen Zagaria and others. The FBI ended the run. At trial, McTaggart, then 26, was convicted of multiple counts and sentenced to life.
Those killed were gangsters, all fighting for their share of the black market in Cleveland. Virtually all of McTaggart's gangster peers have died.
