His father is in prison for life, but reputed mob leader John A. "Junior" Gotti could spend only eight years doing time if he accepts a plea bargain from federal prosecutors.
U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White is believed to want Gotti, 34, and nine of his 10 co-defendants to plead guilty as a package or not at all, The Daily News reported today.
Gotti is reputedly one of the top leaders of the Gambino crime family formerly run by his father, imprisoned since 1992.
In an indictment earlier this year, Gotti Jr. was charged with beating and robbing a drug dealer, extorting money from an upscale Manhattan topless bar, and running gambling, loansharking and phony phone card operations.
