Philly mob boss Steven Mazzone off to big house again

Steven Mazzone, 59, underboss of the Philly mob, pleaded guilty in Sept to racketeering, loansharking, and gambling charges. He will spend the next 5 years in the federal pen. A smoking gun for prosecutors came from a 2015 wiretap of a mafia induction ceremony, where Mazzone coached new members on their intimidation tactics and encouraged them to grow the business. Mazzone was sentenced to 9 years for a similar conviction in 2000.
Steven 'Handsome Stevie' Mazzone, has been a top gangster in the Philly crime family since the 1990s and the No. 2 man since 2011.
