Henry Borelli in an FBI mugshot, May 22, 1981

Henry Joseph Borelli also known as "Dirty Henry" (born 1948) is a New York mafioso with the Gambino crime family who became a core member of the violent DeMeo crew.

DeMeo Gang

The DeMeo gang was an infamous group of murderers, car thieves and drug dealers associated with the Gambino mafia crime family. Led by Gambino soldier Roy DeMeo, the crew included Joseph Testa, Anthony Senter, Joseph Guglielmo and Chris Rosenberg. From the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, the DeMeo gang was suspected in 75 to 200 killings. Due to his reputed efficiency as a shooter, Borelli acquired the nickname "Dirty Henry" in homage to the Clint Eastwood movie character Dirty Harry popular in the 1970s. Despite his usefulness as an enforcer and hitman, Borelli could never become a made man in the Gambino family; he was automatically disqualified from family membership because in the early 1970s he took the New York Police Department (NYPD) entrance exam.

Prison

In 1986, Borelli was sentenced to life in prison and a concurrent sentence of 150 years for 15 counts of auto theft. In sentencing Borelli, Judge Duffy stated, "You have been convicted of being what is generally called a contract killer. Henry Borelli, you profess Roman Catholicism. I would suggest that what you should do is beg God for forgiveness." The judge recommended that Borelli never receive parole. Although Borelli successfully appealed the life sentence, the 150-year sentence for the auto theft was upheld. [1]. As of April 2008, Borelli is serving out his sentence at Hazelton Federal Penitentary located in Preston County, West Virginia. His projected release date is 10-10-2072. [2] .

He is now eligible for parole. Although Borelli has been eligible for parole since 1996, he has waived his parole consideration and has failed to appear before the Commission for parole hearings. Read at the bottom of the document. This may be because of the unlikelihood of Borelli being released given Judge Duffy's recommendation that Borelli never receive parole.

Biography

DeMeo crew

The DeMeo crew was an infamous group of murderers, car thieves and drug dealers associated with the Gambino mafia family. Led by Gambino soldier Roy DeMeo, the crew included Joseph Testa, Anthony Senter, Joseph Guglielmo and Chris Rosenberg. From the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, the DeMeo gang was suspected of 75 to 200 killings. Borelli was a drug dealer before he joined the DeMeo crew.

Due to his reputed efficiency as a shooter, Borelli acquired the nickname "Dirty Henry" in homage to the Clint Eastwood movie character Dirty Harry popular in the 1970s. Despite his usefulness as an enforcer and hitman, Borelli could never become a made man in the Gambino family. He was automatically disqualified from family membership because in the early 1970s he took the New York Police Department entrance exam. DeMeo's son Albert wrote in his book For The Sins of My Father, that Borelli was a "suit and tie" type of guy, more suited for Wall Street.
