NEW YORK (AP) — John “Junior” Gotti says he's selling his sprawling property on New York's Long Island.
He tells the New York Post he can't afford the upkeep. He says he plans to put the 1.9-acre estate on the market in two weeks.
The Oyster Bay Cove property includes a four-bedroom house, a guest house, an in-ground pool, a wine cellar and a barn where the family keeps its horses.
The paper says the 43-year-old son of the notorious mob boss eventually plans to move to the South, once his son finishes high school.
His lawyer told the newspaper that Gotti spent more than $1-million defending himself in three federal trials against charges that he ordered the 1992 kidnapping of radio show host and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa. The trials ended with deadlocked juries.
