Lawyer says 'Junior' Gotti has reformed

John A. "Junior" Gotti went on trial on kidnapping, extortion and fraud charges Monday, with a prosecutor saying he ordered the 1992 kidnapping of a radio host to silence him for his verbal attacks on the Gotti family.

As a bespectacled Gotti, 40, sat passively in a dark suit, federal prosecutor Victor Hou accused him of taking over the street leadership of the Gambino crime family during the 1990s after his father, John Gotti, was convicted of racketeering and sentenced to life in prison, where he died in 2002. "The Gambino crime family is not a family like yours or mine," Hou told the jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
