lenny and mike hiller also took a guilty plea, I suppose now that they are done with tonino, lenny and mike will be sentenced soon, although the actual sentencing will probably be postponed a dozen or so times, as in toninos case, but it will eventually happen. my guess is lenny is looking at more than 5 years, as he allegedly took twice as much as tonino. time will tell. don't forget it took almost 4 years to finally sentence these first 2 guys, so it may be a while.

You should all get a life, and stop worrying about these guys. Did you ever think that maybe the government got it wrong and the rat Joe LaForgia lied threw his teeth to save himself. He is the one that stole all the oil and robbed all the customers and then set up his so called friends. He should be in jail right beside these guys. Hi is putting a 2 million dollar renovation on his house in Staten Island and supposedly has two walk in safes, I'm sure the other guys don't have that. This case was all for the publicity for the government.

Wow what a dose of unreality, you ought to have your medications checked. Joe Laforgia got in Mystic's trucks, made Lenny's drivers steal oil, then took the oil all without Lenny knowing a thing about it? hahahahahaha! And look at all the publicity the govt got, you have to know where to even look for this story. The only thing I agree with is he should be in jail right alongside the rest of these lowlifes! SMH!
