|Mafia boss Vincenzo “Jimmy” DeMaria has a strong track record of turning to the courts to fight for his rights. DeMaria, named as one of Ontario’s most influential mobsters, has won again, this time against the Parole Board of Canada for keeping him in prison.|
The Federal Court has ordered the parole board to reconsider DeMaria’s parole application at a new hearing. DeMaria, 62, is on lifetime parole because of a second-degree murder conviction, a conditional freedom that is periodically yanked when he strays too close to his outlaw friends.
