Joey Merlino gained notoriety as the head of the Philadelphia crime family, facing charges related to cocaine distribution, extortion, and illegal gambling.

In 1982, at the age of 20, Merlino was involved in a violent incident at the Lido Restaurant in Atlantic City, leading to his conviction in 1984 for aggravated assault and weapon possession. Subsequently, he was banned from New Jersey casinos. During his incarceration in 1990, Merlino connected with mobster Ralph Natale, plotting to take control of the Philadelphia crime family.

Mob conflicts escalated with shootings and attacks in 1993, eventually leading to Merlino’s arrest in November of the same year for violating supervised release. Following the imprisonment of the family’s leader, John Stanfa, Merlino emerged victorious in the mob war, with Ralph Natale named the new boss.

Merlino’s involvement extended to affiliations with the Pagans MC motorcycle club and the Junior Black Mafia. After officially taking over the crime family in 1999, he was sentenced to 14 years in prison, released in 2011, and experienced subsequent legal challenges.
