Judge Declares Mistrial in John Gotti, Jr. Case
CIVIC CENTER — Like father, like son.
John Gotti Jr., the son of the legendary mob boss “Teflon Don,” beat the rap for the fourth time after a federal judge declared a mistrial Tuesday in the face of a deadlocked jury.
The jury spent 11 days in unsuccessful deliberations — breaking for the Thanksgiving holiday — before Federal Judge Kevin Castel agreed to let them off the racketeering case.
Gotti sobbed and his family applauded as the decision was announced.
Mistrials were declared Gotti's previous trials because of hung juries.
