In a criminal case involving a former member of the northeast crime syndicate known as the Patriarca Family of La Cosa Nostra, who, after being charged with multiple criminal offenses, absconded to Arizona, changed his identity, and joined a marijuana-shipping conspiracy, his sentence and convictions of conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, conspiracy to distribute cocaine, extortion, flight from justice, and conspiracy to distribute marijuana are affirmed over an assortment of supposed errors -- ranging from the prosecution's use of the grand jury to the court's sentence selection, and almost everything in between.
