In Dennis Griffin’s book, Culotta, he talks about Frank Culotta attempting to go on the straight and narrow after being released from prison on parole.

In order to qualify for parole, an inmate had to have a job lined up. Frank’s mother knew that her boss owned a dental lab and arranged for him to be hired at the lab, despite Frank having no qualifications to make dentures. The deal called for Frank to show up at the lab each Friday to collect his paycheck, creating a paper trail showing him as an employee. Frank would then cash the check and return the money to the owner. The parole board was satisfied, the boss didn’t lose any money, and Frank had lots of free time to pursue other endeavors.
