As sentencing approaches, Roger Stone turns to former mob lawyer for help

Source: ABC News

With his sentencing fast approaching, Roger Stone is bolstering his defense team with a veteran criminal defense attorney whose past roster of clients included John Gotti Jr. and other high-profile figures allegedly involved in organized crime.

New York attorney Seth Ginsberg has an extensive background in criminal defense work. In a filing this week, Judge Amy Berman Jackson granted Stone's request to bring Ginsberg onto his team.

"Roger has an excellent team of attorneys and I'm very pleased he's asked me to assist them," Ginsberg told ABC News on Thursday. Ginsberg added that he was brought on to help Stone's legal team with their sentencing strategy.

Ginsberg has had a colorful career inside and outside the courthouse. At one point, in 2010, he was banned from a Manhattan federal detention center after he was caught walking in with marijuana in his bag while on his way to visit an alleged associate of the Gambino crime family. He also previously represented an alleged member of the Luchese crime family.

4. Wonderful! Magnificent!

I think if the Roger head were real they would have wanted to roll it into the water long ago.

What a fine chihuahua. He knows exactly what to do.

Mafia lawyer Seth Ginsberg weeded out; banned from visiting lockup after he's caught with pot

A mob lawyer has been banned from a Manhattan federal lockup after he was caught trying to walk in with a bag of marijuana, sources told the Daily News.

Seth Ginsberg - who was visiting a reputed Gambino soldier when guards found the illicit weed - wasn't arrested.

But he is barred from the Metropolitan Correctional Center while the feds probe whether he was trying to smuggle the pot inside.

"I had no idea there was anything illegal in my bag. I had no intention of bringing anything illegal to my client, nor would he ever ask or want me to," Ginsberg said yesterday.

6. Easy Solution

At the sentence hearing, give Stone less than 7 years, and then remand him into custody to begin serving his reduced sentence.

No time to get his affairs in order, start the sentence Bill Barr wanted immediately .
