CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio judge says a reputed member of New York's Gambino crime family and former son-in-law of John Gotti can resume working at the scrap yards he operates in southeast Cleveland.
Cleveland police arrested 55-year-old Carmine "The Bull" Agnello of Bentleyville on July 15 for what authorities say was a $3 million scam involving stolen cars and scrap metal. A Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Common Pleas judge freed Agnello on bond but ordered him to stay away from his scrap yards. A different judge on Thursday said Agnello can return to work.
Agnello hasn't been formally charged. Prosecutors say they'll seek charges at a grand jury. Agnello was married 17 years to reality TV star Victoria Gotti, the daughter of the late crime boss. They divorced in 2002.
