Mike Franzese was, at one time, considered the youngest and most wealthiest mobster by Fortune Magazine. He was ranked #18 in the magazineunder “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”. He ran everything from gasoline schemes to movie production. Very well rounded mobster. He was sent to prison in the 80s but never turned on his fellow criminals. Well rounded and honorable.
During the making of his last movie, he met a dancer from L.A., 19 year old Camille Garcia, who was a christian and later became his wife. Soon after, Micheal Franzese gave up his life of crime and also became born again. This, of course, did not stop him from making a boat load of money. He started doing speaking engagements, writing books, and appearing on network television as a talking head. He wrote in his books all about his life of crime of which he nowis making millions off of. I guess that sometimes crime does pay.
