Acusan a hijo de Gotti por intento de asesinato

NEW YORK (CNN) — A federal indictment unsealed Thursday charges John Gotti Jr. with a number of crimes, including the attempted murder of Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa.
The indictment against Gotti, son of the late Gambino crime family boss John Gotti, was unsealed on Thursday by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan.
The indictment charges Gotti and three other members of the Gambino crime family. The Associated Press reported that the charges against the four include murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit securities fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, extortion and illegal gambling.
Gotti, known as «Junior,» is currently serving a prison sentence for racketeering. He is scheduled to be released in September.
If convicted, Gotti could face 130 years in prison, The Associated Press reported.
It was not immediately clear what attack on Sliwa the indictment referred to, the AP reported. In April 1992, police said Sliwa was attacked by bat-wielding young men, leaving him with a broken hand and an injured scalp. Two months later, he was shot twice while in a cab, and was hospitalized for internal injuries and leg wounds.
Prosecutors were to release details about the charges later Thursday at a news conference in Manhattan.
According to The Associated Press, Gotti filed a lawsuit in May claiming the federal Bureau of Prisons rejected his bid to move from prison to a halfway house because of bias against his family name.
The elder Gotti was convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992. and sentenced to life in prison. He died of throat cancer in a prison hospital in 2002.
Sliwa founded the Guardian Angels in 1979.
Peter Gotti, uncle to John Gotti Jr., was sentenced in April for money laundering and racketeering
