In 1989, while the Patriarca family ...

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 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.


Rhode Island: Guglielmetti pleads guilty to cocaine trafficking

Rhode Island: Guglielmetti pleads guilty to cocaine trafficking PROVIDENCE -- Matthew L. Guglielmetti, a high-ranking mobster at the center of a federal corruption investigation of the Rhode Island construction industry and the Laborers' International union, pleaded guilty today to federal cocaine trafficking charges.

But the man described by prosecutors as a capo regime in the Patriarca crime family is not cooperating with the feds, his lawyer made clear afterwards, despite any "street talk'' to the contrary.
...
Guglielmetti, 56, will be sentenced Aug. 11. He faces a possible 12-year prison term under a plea agreement he signed with federal prosecutors in March.
He wore the khaki prison garb of the federal Wyatt Detention Center in Central Falls, where he has been since his arrest on Jan. 20, the same day that FBI agents and state police detectives raided offices of the Laborers' union in Providence and Capital City Concrete in Cranston.
Guglielmetti, who presided over gambling and loan-sharking for the New England Mafia, has been a member of Laborers Local 271. In 2003, he served as union steward for Capital City Concrete during construction of a parking garage for the new Kent County Courthouse in Warwick.
He also was a silent partner in a Johnston company, Hemphill Construction, that turned out to be a front for the FBI as it probed the local construction industry for nearly three years. Guglielmetti also thought that Hemphill was used to launder drug money. As part of the deal, the government agreed not to charge Guglielmetti with further crimes involving his "association and involvement'' with Hemphill.
Guglielmetti, who did nearly five years in prison in the 1990s after pleading guilty to federal racketeering charges in Hartford, Conn., was stoic today. At one point he looked at the reporters in the courtroom and asked his lawyer, ``Where's Jack White?'', referring to Channel 12's veteran mob reporter, who was not there.
