Frank Valenti was a Mafia figure who controlled Rochester, New York underworld activities from 1964-1972. He was an integral part of the Stefano Magaddino criminal syndicate, based in Buffalo. Costenze "Stanley" Valenti, Frank's brother, was his partner in crime. Costenze was sentenced to prison in New York City for a time. Frank Valenti was placed under court ordered exile until 1964, when he returned to Rochester from Pittsburgh to face tax evasion charges. Valenti met with higher echelon Magaddino empire figures in 1965. The Niagara Falls conclave dealt with gambling, i.e. specific cuts received by the mob in return for protection for bookies.
