Goodfellas - Tony Darrow Mob Associate Sentenced To Probation

A former mafia associate hired by disgraced Goodfellas star Tony Darrow to break a debtor's jaw has been sentenced to probation.

Giovanni Monteleone was one of two thugs recruited by actor Darrow, real name Anthony Borgese, in 2009 to savagely beat a New York man who owed him $5,000 (£3,330).

The 45 year old, who had ties to the Gambino crime family, faced a charge of extortion but agreed to co-operate with officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to avoid prison time.

His evidence helped to land a conviction for the actor in 2011, when Darrow, now 74, was sentenced to six months under house arrest, in addition to two years probation and 250 hours of community service, while Monteleone's partner in crime, Gambino mobster Joey Orlando, was placed behind bars for 51 months.

Monteleone was sentenced to probation on Friday (22Nov13).

During the hearing at Brooklyn Federal Court, Monteleone said, "I basically hit an innocent man. If he was in front of me (now) I would apologise to him. It still bothers me 'til this day."
