A Study of Noteworthy Presidential Pardons

Angelo “Gyp” DeCarlo

Posted on | March 18, 2010 | No Comments

Angelo “Gyp” DeCarlo was a member of the Genovese crime family. He ran the loan sharking activities in New Jersey in the 1960s. He was purportedly hooked up with Frank Sinatra. He was sentenced to 12 years after being convicted of extortion and poisoning.

DeCarlo was diagnosed with cancer while incarcerated. In December of 1972 he was pardoned by Nixon and was released from prison. In October 1973, he died.

While a special investigator looked for signs of corruption, none was found. Insiders believe that Vice-President Spiro Agnew was friends with Sinatra, and the VP asked the Nixon to pardon DeCarlo.
