GOVERNMENT’S SENTENCING MEMORANDUM FOR ANTHONY ARILLOTTA
The Government respectfully submits this memorandum in advance of the sentencing of Anthony Arillotta, and to advise the Court of the substantial assistance that Arillotta has rendered in the investigation and prosecution of other individuals. In light of that substantial assistance, and assuming that Arillotta continues to abide by the terms of his cooperation agreement pending sentencing, the Government intends to move, at the time of sentencing, for a downward departure  pursuant to Section 5K1.1 of the Guidelines and for a sentence notwithstanding the applicable mandatory minimums, pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Section 3553(e). Arillotta pled guilty before this Court on July 6, 2010, to a ten-count Information. Among other things, Arillotta pled guilty to participating in a Racketeering conspiracy and substantive RICO violations related to his association with the Genovese Organized Crime Family (the “Genovese Family”), to aiding and abetting the November 2003 murders of Genovese Family Capo Adolfo Bruno and Genovese Family Associate Gary Westerman, and to attempting to murder Frank Dadabo in May 2003. Arillotta pled guilty pursuant cooperation agreement with the Government. Consistent

 2 with that agreement, Arillotta has provided the Government with immensely useful assistance. Indeed, Arillotta’s cooperation was something of a watershed moment in the Government’s investigation of Arthur Nigro, the former Acting Boss of the Genovese Family and the Springfield crew of the Genovese Family. One of the very few made members of the Genovese Family ever to have agreed to cooperate, Arillotta proved candid and forthcoming from the start. And by cooperating, Arillotta allowed the Government to solve multiple unsolved crimes – including the murder of Gary Westerman and the attempted murder of Frank Dadabo – and convict numerous dangerous criminals, including Arthur Nigro, Fotios and Ty Geas, and Emilio Fusco after two separate trials.
Background
 
A. Offense Conduct
Anthony Arillotta spent his entire adult life until his arrest in February 2010 committing a vast assortment of crimes, many of them violent. He will be the first to explain that he was a menace to the city of Springfield, and that he used violence, intimidation and his association with Organized Crime to terrorize the city and line his own pockets with money from his various criminal activities. He had dedicated himself to a life as a professional criminal and mobster, and he was quite adept at it. Arillotta pled guilty to an assortment of crimes outlined in the S3 Information, including engaging in a pattern of racketeering as part of the Genovese Crime Family that included racketeering acts of murder (Al Bruno and Gary Westerman), conspiracy to commit murder (Frank Dadabo), extortion and extortion conspiracy, loansharking, illegal gambling, narcotics distribution, as well as stand-alone charges for most of those crimes and for the unlawful  possession of guns, including machine guns.
