Eugene "Boobsie" Castelle screwed - tries again

Castelle is a soldier in the Lucchese crime family. He was convicted in 2019 for racketeering conspiracy and running an illegal gambling house. In 2008, he had completed an 88-month sentence for racketeering conspiracy. He was sentenced to 77 months in a federal penitentiary, a three-year supervised release, $100,000 fine and forfeiture of $188,955 in criminal proceeds.
He was freed on appeal, which was eventually dismissed. The career mobster then tried to claim a threat from Covid in jail. That claim has also been dismissed and Boobsie will remain caged. John Pennisi, a family member turned FBI informant, ratted the family out. He recorded a mob initiation ceremony.
Latest for the wise guy is to claim his lawyer screwed him. He now wants to take the plea deal he rejected.
