In 1989, while the Patriarca family ..., 30 Oct 2012 [cached]
In 1989, while the Patriarca family was in the midst of an internal factional war, Guglielmetti came to the attention of law enforcement authorities when it was discovered that he had attempted to act as a peace broker. In return for his efforts, he inherited the rackets previously overseen by the murdered underboss William Grasso. On October 20, 1989, Guglielmetti was recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) while the Patriarca family conducted a Mafia induction ceremony in Medford, Massachusetts.[1] As a result, Guglielmetti ended up doing nearly five years at a federal prison in Sandstone, Minnesota during the 1990s after pleading guilty to federal racketeering charges in Hartford, Connecticut. After his release, he resumed his criminal activities and soon presided over gambling and loan sharking for the Patriarca family.
At the time, Guglielmetti served as steward for Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) Local 271. After Hemphill opened, an undercover FBI agent met with Guglielmetti and offered him the chance to buy into the company. According to an FBI affidavit, Guglielmetti became a silent partner in Hemphill and started taking company funds, "including a share of the profits from laundering what Guglielmetti believed were drug proceeds through the undercover business."
In 2003, Guglielmetti served as union steward for Capital City Concrete, which was chosen as a minority contractor for a $5.8 million parking ramp at the Kent County Court House in Warwick, Rhode Island. The company was also selected for $7 million in contract work on a sewage overflow tunnel at Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island. As work on the Warwick ramp progressed, state court officials pressed local contractors for payroll records in order to conduct criminal background checks on their employees. Capital City was among the last contractors to comply with this request. About a week before Guglielmetti stopped working on the ramp, Capital City finally turned over the records. Nothing emerged in the state files - apparently, Guglielmetti had unspecified charges expunged.
In October 2003, Rhode Island and Massachusetts police visited the Warwick construction site to tell Guglielmetti that he and Manocchio had been recorded on undercover wiretaps discussing the collection of gambling debts and the mediation of a mob dispute. On January 20, 2005, FBI agents and Rhode Island State Police detectives raided the headquarters of Local 271 and Capital City Concrete in Cranston. Earlier that day, Guglielmetti and a pair of associates were arrested in Johnston.
On March 31, 2005, Matthew Guglielmetti signed a plea agreement admitting that he conspired to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine. Later in 2005, Guglielmetti was sentenced to 11 years in prison.
A key figure in the probe ..., 25 Nov 2008 [cached]
A key figure in the probe is Matthew L. Guglielmetti Jr., a capo regime in the Patriarca crime family, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence in Fort Dix, N.J. At one point, according to an affidavit supporting the charges, Guglielmetti told an undercover FBI agent that "his status as a member of La Cosa Nostra afforded him special influence with the Laborers' International Union of North America and elsewhere."
Guglielmetti was a member of the Laborers' Union and he worked on the Rising Sun Mills project.
Matthew Guglielmetti, 65, of ..., 1 Jan 2014 [cached]
Matthew Guglielmetti, 65, of Cranston, is currently eligible to be released to a halfway house and will complete his sentence in December of this year, according to a Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesperson. He could be released to home confinement as early as June, records show.
Gulgielmetti - a reputed capo regime in the New England crime family - was sentenced to more than ten years in prison after pleading guilty to drug trafficking charges. Investigators said he promised to protect a shipment of cocaine traveling through Rhode Island.

Guglielmetti was a close associate to former mob boss Raymond "Junior" Patriarca, according to law enforcement officials.
In a 1987 reference, Flemmi told his FBI handler that Guglielmetti "is the main contact for Raymond Patriarca, Jr."
In 1997 Guglielmetti only enhanced his underworld stature when he showed up at Memorial Hospital suffering from two serious stab wounds. No one was arrested in the case, however, because Guglielmetti refused to cooperate with police.
Guglielmetti was in attendance at a famous 1989 mob induction ceremony in Medford, Mass. that was being secretly recorded by the FBI. The audio from that day has been used in numerous organized trials as evidence that the mob exists.
Prior to his arrest in the drug case, Guglielmetti was sentenced to four years in prison in 1991 for handling the mob's interests in Connecticut.
After his release from prison in 1995, Guglielmetti returned to the construction business working as a member of labor union Local 271. His ties to the construction industry eventually got him snared in a FBI investigation that used a fake contracting firm as a rouse to root out corruption.
