Frank Cullotta, the mob’s top man in Las Vegas during the 70’s and 80’s turned government witness, is but one of the former mobsters involved in Mob-Con 2013.

With a contract out on his life, Cullotta survived his time in prison, as well as in the witness protection program, and is now a free man!
