Staten Island Election-Night Goons Hit 3; Charged, Jailed
One of the two men charged last month, Bryan Garaventa, pleaded guilty to interfering with voting rights and is cooperating against his goombahs, original arrestee Ralph Nicoletti and Michael Contreras, both 18, and 21-year-old Brian Carranza. They were charged yesterday with conspiracy to interfere with voting rights. All have pleaded not guilty. Carranza's out on bail, the others remain in custody, Nicoletti at the prosecution's special urging -- apparently he's been out intimidating witnesses, including co-defendant Contreras, and cops found evidence in his home of involvement with a "Rosebank Krew" of would-be killers.
