Frank Rizzo’s Daughter Won’t Face Gambling Charge

Her husband and son plead guilty, however.

NewsWorks reports that Frank Rizzo’s daughter will escape prosecution in a gambling case. “Joanna Mastronardo, daughter of the late Mayor Frank Rizzo, will have a banking charge dropped if other defendants plead guilty to racketeering and gambling charges. Her husband, Joseph “Joe Vito” Mastronardo Sr., and son, Joseph F. “Joey” Mastronardo, pleaded guilty on Friday. A federal judge said Tuesday that he will drop her case when they are sentenced.”
