An alleged leader of the so-called "Greek Mob" surrendered to the FBI yesterday at Philadelphia International Airport after spending 16 months as a fugitive writing his memoirs in Greece.
As part of a negotiated agreement for his return, George Botsaris, 37, will plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and distribution of cocaine, said prosecutor Michael Seigel of the U.S. Organized Crime Strike Force.
Seigel said the guilty plea could be made before a judge today.
The charges, filed in August 1987, stemmed from a two-year FBI investigation into cocaine trafficking by members of what the Pennsylvania Crime Commission has called "the Greek Mob" in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington.
