2 MOB FIGURES CONVICTED IN DRUG-TRAFFICKING CASE

Gene Gotti and John Carneglia, two reputed members of the Gambino crime family, were found guilty of all charges in their heroin racketeering trial in Brooklyn Tuesday, ending the oldest unresolved case in the federal system.

An anonymous, 11-member panel reached the verdict 3 1/2 hours after U.S. District Judge John Bartels dismissed a holdout juror who said he feared for his family's safety.

The holdout juror had told the judge he was scared by a visit last week from two men who asked if he was on the Gotti jury even though jurors' names were not made public.

Gotti, 42, brother of reputed Gambino crime family boss John Gotti, and Carneglia, 44, each face up to 50 years in prison.
