Choices: You Make 'em You Own 'em: The Jerry Tillinghast Story

In a remarkably personal and intimate account, Jerry Tillinghast, one of the most popular characters from the first season of Crimetown, talks about his life and the choices he made in Choices: You Make 'em You Own 'em: The Jerry Tillinghast Story.

Battling alongside his brothers on the streets of Providence. Enlisting in the United States Marine Corps,fighting in Vietnam, and becoming a victim of the politics of that war. Returning to Providence an angry young man and his choice to hang with the wiseguys.

The cost of his reputation as a "feared mob enforcer" and the effect on his family. Meeting Raymond L.S. Patriarca, the notorious head of the New England Organized Crime Family and how he came to embrace him as a father figure.

He revals the indisde story of his brushes with the law and the two most infamous cases in Rhode Island history that he is forever linked to: Bonded Vault and the George Basmajian Homicide.

Jerry was found not guilty after the Bonded Vault trial, but his luck ran out with the Benjamin murder. Convicted with Jerry was his brother, Harold Tillinghast. Since the moment of their arrest, Jerry has said just one thing. Harold was not in the car.

Jerry Tillinghast, a featured character of the Crimetown podcast, one of the most downloaded podcasts in the world, tells his life story with honesty and emotion. Setting the record straight after 40 years of silence.

Silent no more...
