Fifteen years of working as a mob informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation turned what could have been a jail sentence into a mere slap on the wrist for the late John Gotti’s so-called adopted son and aroused the ire of the Teflon Don’s oldest daughter.
Lewis Kasman, a former trim producer who ran a fashion industry front for the Gambino crime family and served as a financial adviser to crime boss Gotti, on Thursday was sentenced to time served and three years supervision for crimes including obstruction of justice and money laundering to which he pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court. Years of cooperation with mob investigations helped him avoid jail and demonstrate some of the Teflon characteristics often attributed to his presumptive father.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
