Biography

St. Laurent was born of Italian parents, his father died when he was young and his mother remarried and both of them took her new husbands last name, St. Laurent.

In July 1993, Robert DeLuca and St. Laurent along with 24 others were indicted for running a bookmaking operation out of the Foxy Lady strip club in Providence. DeLuca pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years, while St. Laurent received 10 months for his role. On September 23, 1993, St. Laurent would gain notoriety by being entered into the infamous Nevada "Black Book," a listing of people who are banned from setting foot in any casino in the state of Nevada.

In 2006, St. Laurent was arrested for attempting to extort two Massachusetts businessmen, by this time he was old and in bad health, using a wheelchair to get around. In later years, St. Laurent and Bobby DeLuca, his one time partner, had a long running war of words, which ended with St. Laurent hiring hitmen to murder DeLuca after apparently learning DeLuca was falsely telling others that the Saint was a government informant.
