Colombo consigliere Ralph DiMatteo pleads guilty

DiMatteo was able to walk out of prison on a $5m bond despite objections of federal prosecutors. The crime boss spent five months in the Brooklyn jail.
The Colombo family’s third most powerful member jetted to Florida a day before the feds charged 13 with major crimes. He ducked arrest on the eve of a mob family takedown in Sept, 2021. Crimes included labor racketeering, extortion and money laundering related to the infiltration of a Queens labor union. DiMatteo’s run was cut short after his son posted the pool photo leading to his surrender the next day.
