Blue Carmen‘The Cheeseman’ DiNunzio hopes for Christmas charity



Even to this wiseguy’s “family” there’s no place like home for the holidays.
Carmen “The Cheeseman” DiNunzio, who until he was placed on house arrest in May was the reputed underboss of the New England Mafia, is asking a judge to let him spend Christmas Eve and Christmas “in the company of” his brother, Anthony, and nephew, Louis.
U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan’s office holds the power over who DiNunzio, 51, gets to fraternize with while he awaits trial on a charge of trying to bribe a Big Dig official with $10,000
It was unclear yesterday whether his sibling and nephew are on Sullivan’s naughty or nice list.
DiNunzio is offering to host this week’s merrymaking at the two-family home in East Boston he shares with his mother.
U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Joyce London Alexander Thursday consented to a request by DiNunzio’s co-defendant, Anthony D’Amore, who is under house arrest in Revere, to attend a Christmas Eve midnight Mass and spend Christmas at a relative’s home.
She is also permitting D’Amore to drive his son to college out of state over a long weekend next month.
DiNunzio, owner of the Fresh Cheese shop in the North End, and D’Amore are accused of trying to execute a deal to sell 300,000 yards of untested loam to the Central Artery Project for $6 million through a man they didn’t realize was an FBI agentReputed ex-Mafia boss Louis
