Corona Mob Mom Fit For Trial

By Liz Goff
A Corona woman charged with her family of running a massive cocaine operation from their family businesses has been found fit to stand trial next March.

Federal Judge Raymond Dearie ordered Eleonora Giogliotti to undergo psychiatric testing in April, after her attorneys said she believed she was being poisoned in prison, and had started spitting on prison guards.
Gigliotti’s husband, Gregorio and her son, Angelo, were convicted last summer of importing more than 50 kilos of cocaine from Costa Rica to family-owned businesses in the U.S., in shipments of yucca.
Prosecutors argued the Gigliotti’s owned several businesses tied to drug trafficking, including Cucin a Modo on 108th Street, in the middle of the “Little Italy” section of Corona.
Prosecutors also alleged the Gregorios are associates of an organized crime family in Italy and Gregorio is an associate of Genovese capo Anthony (Tough Tony) Federici, owner of the Park Side Restaurant, located in the same section of Corona.
