June 21, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Three weeks from pandora jewelry now Chicago's latest Outfit trial is chamilia jewelry scheduled to start in federal court. A trio of aging Chicago mobsters face racketeering/burglary charges. In this Intelligence Report: We've pandora bracelets wholesale learned that the government witnesses may pandora beads include one of the city's most controversial pandora charms businessmen, the man known as "the Mayor of Little Italy." He is Oscar D'Angelo, whose Chicago political influence began in the 1950s with pandora jewelry retailers Richard J. Daley, yielded him millions as a discount pandora beads well-connected developer and rainmaker, and ended pandora bracelets wholesale in a feud with Richard M. Daley almost 10 years ago. D'Angelo is the pandora style beads flamboyant, self-styled "mayor of Little Italy." Now, at age 79, D'Angelo finds himself on pandora silver bracelet the prosecution's list of potential witnesses in the city's next big mob trial. Next month, in the trial of three Chicago pandora bracelets hoodlums, D'Angelo may have to speak publicly from the pandora bracelets sale witness stand in federal court. Jerry Scalise, Art Rachel and Robert Pullia are chamilia bracelets charged with plotting to hold-up suburban pandora beads wholesale banks and with scheming a chamilia beads break-in at the home of deceased South Side rackets boss pandora beads wholesale Angelo "The Hook" LaPietra. Scalise and Rachel are best known for stealing the famous 40-carat Marlborough pandora jewelry sale diamond in 1980, a daring daylight robbery from a popular discount pandora bracelets jewelry store in London, England. The men did pandora silver bracelet long prison stretches in the pandora charm UK and returned to Chicago pandora beads sale, authorities say, to resume their careers as Outfit burglars. While it is not clear why the government pandora bracelets would want D'Angelo to testify against them, it would be an unusual and potentially uncomfortable position for him. First, D'Angelo is a retired pandora beads defrocked attorney himself, in 1989 having been disbarred for giving rental cars pandora bracelets sale as gifts to city officials, judges and other politicians. In 2000 he then scarred his pandora beads three-decade long relationship with the Daley family by loaning chamilia beads money interest to a top Daley official and working as an pandora charm unregistered lobbyist. Federal authorities aren't talking about why D'Angelo is discount pandora beads on the witness list, although with a park along the Eisenhower Expressway named after him and with his pandora beads sale historical perspective of Taylor Street where the gangland thugs operated, perhaps D'Angelo pandora jewelry wholesale will merely be a foundation witness for the prosecution. It is not unusual for the government to put people on retired pandora beads the witness list who don't end up being called pandora style beads to testify just to cover their bases. But D'Angelo's name pandora charms certainly attracts attention. And, there is another well-known name on the prosecutor's list, former Chicago police chief of discount pandora bracelets detectives William Hanhardt, who is in prison for chamilia bracelets his own role in an Outfit jewel theft racket. Attempts by the I-Team to reach D'Angelo were unsuccessful.
