An aging mobster who was portrayed the in the movie 'Goodfellas' is off the hook.
FOX's Tonya J. Powers has more on the verdict:
Vincent Asaro, who's 80, threw his hands up in the air and shouted "free" as he walked out of Brooklyn federal court after being acquitted on charges he helped plan one of the largest armed robberies in U.S. history.
He had faced racketeering charges for the 1978 Lufthansa heist, the plot of the movie 'Goodfellas.'
(Goodfellas) "There was $30-billion a year in cargo moving through Idlewild Airport and believe me, we tried to steal every bit of it."
Outside the courthouse, he was asked about his plans for the future...
(Asaro) "What do I plan to do? Have a good meal. See my family."
Before getting in a waiting car, Asaro joked to one of his lawyers... "Sam, don't let them see the body in the trunk."
