Robert Mormando Says He's Gay: Mafia Hit Man Comes Out Of The Closet At Trial

Posted: Updated:

A former mob hit man surprised a Brooklyn judge Monday by renouncing the Mafia -- and declaring that he's gay.

In a scene right out of The Sopranos, Robert Mormando came out of the closet while being sentenced for his part in the shooting of bagel store owner Angelo Mugnolo, who survived the attack.

Mormando turned government informant shortly after the botched hit.

The New York Daily News reports that although "Mormando's partner has refused to enter the witness protection program," they have relocated and according to Mormando's lawyer, they "live a peaceful working life."
