INTRODUCTION TO ALL COUNTS
At all times relevant to this Indictment, unless
otherwise indicated:
The Enterprise
1. The members and associates of the Bonanno organized
crime family of La Cosa Nostra (the “Bonanno family”) constituted
an “enterprise,” as defined in Title 18, United States Code,
Section 1961(4), that is, a group of individuals associated in
fact. The Bonanno family engaged in, and its activities
affected, interstate and foreign commerce. The Bonanno family
was an organized criminal group that operated in the Eastern
District of New York, other parts of the United States and
Canada. The Bonanno family constituted an ongoing organization,
whose members functioned as a continuing unit for a common
purpose of achieving the objectives of the enterprise.
2. The Bonanno family operated through groups of
individuals headed by “captains,” who were also referred to as
“skippers,” “caporegimes” and “capodecinas.” These groups, which
were referred to as \\crews, II “regimesll and “decinas f” consisted
of “made” members of the Bonanno family, also referred to as
“soldiers,” “friends of ours, 11 “good fellows” and \’buttons, If as
well as associates of the Bonanno family.
3. Each captain was responsible for supervising the
criminal activities of his crew and providing crew members and
associates with support and protection. In return, the captain
received a share of the earnings of each of the crew’s members
and associates.
2
4. Above the captains were the three highest-ranking
members of the Bonanno family. The head of the Bonanno family
was known as the nboss. H He was assisted by an “underboss” and a
counselor, who was known as the “consigliere.” With the
assistance of the underboss and consigliere, the boss was
responsible for setting policy, resolving disputes between
members and associates of the Bonanno family and members and
associates of other criminal organizations, and approving all
significant actions taken by members and associates of the
Bonanno family, including murder.
5. The boss, underboss and consigliere of the Bonanno
family, who were sometimes referred to collectively as the
“administration,” supervised, supported, protected and
disciplined the captains, soldiers and associates and regularly
received reports regarding the activities of the members and
associates of the Bonanno family. In return for their
supervision and protection, the boss, underboss and consigliere
received part of the illegal earnings of each crew.
6. The Bonanno family was part of an international
criminal organization known by various names, including the
“mafia” and “La Cosa Nostra,” which operated through entities
known as ufamilies. H The ruling body of this organization was
known as the “commission,” the membership of which at various
times has included the bosses of the five New York City-based
3
families, to wit: the Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese and
Luchese organized crime families. For a period of time, the boss
of the Bonanno family was removed from membership within the
commission.
7. From time to time, the Bonanno family would propose
a list of associates to be “made,” that is, to become members of
the Bonanno family. The list would be circulated to the other
families based in New York City. Upon becoming “made,” each
member would take an oath of “omerta,” vowing never to reveal any
information about the Bonanno family, its members or associates.
The Purposes, Methods and Means of the Enterprise
8. The principal purpose of the Bonanno family was to
generate money for its members and associates. This purpose was
implemented by members and associates of the Bonanno family
through various criminal activities, including drug trafficking,
extortion, illegal gambling, loansharking and robbery. The
members and associates of the Bonanno family also furthered the
enterprise’s criminal activities by threatening economic injury
and using and threatening to use physical violence, including
murder.
9. Although the primary purpose of the Bonanno family
was to generate money for its members and associates, the members
and associates at times used the resources of the Bonanno family
to settle personal grievances and vendettas, sometimes with the
4
approval of higher-ranking members of the Bonanno family. For
those purposes, members and associates of the enterprise were
asked and expected to carry out, among other crimes, acts of
violence, including murder and assault.
10. The members and associates of the Bonanno family
engaged in conduct designed to prevent government detection of
their identities, their illegal activities and the location of
proceeds of those activities. That conduct included a commitment
to murdering persons, particularly members or associates of
organized crime families, who were perceived as potential
witnesses against members and associates of the enterprise.
11. Members and associates of the Bonanno family often
coordinated street-level criminal activity, such as drug
trafficking, illegal gambling, loansharking, extortion and
robbery, with members and associates of other organized crime
families.
