John Gotti's former son-in-law denies conspiracy

A reputed member of New York’s Gambino crime family and former son-in-law of John Gotti has pleaded not guilty to charges including conspiracy and money laundering.

Carmine “The Bull” Agnello, of Bentleyville, Pennsylvania, entered the pleas in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, Cleveland.

Prosecutors wanted bond of at least $1m, but the judge kept it at $100,000.

Agnello has been free on bond since two days after his July 15 arrest by Cleveland police.

Prosecutors say higher bond is needed for charges related to a multimillion-dollar scam involving scrap metal and stolen cars. They also say Agnello is a flight risk with a history of racketeering and violence.

Agnello’s lawyer said his client’s business is legitimate and called the million-dollar bond request preposterous.
