Mafia killer Vito Guzzo says he's “completely rehabilitated” - release denied

Mafia killer Vito Guzzo confessed to murdering five. He won’t get early release from prison, a judge ruled. His scheduled release is in November 2028 Guzzo’s crimes were too serious and the danger he poses to the community is too great to consider springing him early.

Vito Guzzo
Vito Guzzo is serving a 38-year sentence for five murders in the 1990s. He’s seeking compassionate release under the First Step Act. He describes himself in a court filing as “completely rehabilitated” and someone who “has matured from a rash young man pursuing a lawless lifestyle, to a reflective, empathetic middle-aged adult.” Feds aren't impressed, and point out he was inducted into the Colombo family while caged at the federal prison in Danbury, Conn.

Guzzo led the 'Giannini Crew'

Cops describe Guzzo as an ultra violent hood with a hair-trigger temper who set the tone for his murderous crew.
In his request for release, Guzzo refers to himself as elderly even though he’s 57. He describes as serious injuries from two shootings in 1990 and 1996, which left him with the loss of sight in one eye and the removal of part of his left lung. Suspected in many killings, Guzzo survived 11 gunshot wounds from two hit attempts.
