Actor From “Sopranos’ Caught in Disability Scam

Too bad this guy didn’t play a mobster caught in a disability scam. maybe he would have learned. Let’s just hope the feds don’t give the same kind of punishment he got on the ‘Sopranos’. I’m thinking when it comes to defrauding the government you should fagetaboutit.

A former Staten Island actor who played a bit part in HBO’s “The Sopranos” has made the leap from fictional crime to real-life felonies, authorities say, by trying to defraud the government after a car wreck.

Raymond Franza, 46, a former Bulls Head resident who now lives in Brooklyn, is accused of claiming nearly $13,000 in Social Security disability benefits and never telling the government he was also getting $4,000 a month in private insurance payments.

Franza played the role of mobster “Donny K” in five episodes of “The Sopranos,” between 2000 and 2002. His character was most famously beaten into unconsciousness and urinated on outside of a bar by mob boss Johnny Sack. Source
