In Part 2, the FBI is focused on taking down Gotti and the Gambino Crime family, as well as the bosses of all five New York mafia clans. When Gotti’s underboss, Sammy Gravano agrees to testify for the government, Gotti Senior is convicted and sentenced to life in prison. John Junior becomes the acting boss of the crime family. With this transition of power, John Junior quickly becomes the prime target of the FBI. John Junior, having resolved to quit the life of organized crime, pleads guilty to racketeering, serves over seven years in prison, and must still withstand four federal trials all ending in mistrials before he is set free to pursue his life as a “civilian,” a husband to his wife, father to his five children, and a law abiding citizen who honors his vow to quit the mob.
