Mayor's ex-con brother opens sandwich shop

PROVIDENCE, RI The new business is called Federal Wrap.

John Cicilline tells The Providence Journal that he became known for making wraps while in federal prison, where he was sent in 2008 after pleading guilty to shaking down a pair of drug dealers.

He was released in February and opened the shop in April with financing from family and friends. His menu is filled with wraps named for other inmates at the Fort Devens federal prison in Massachusetts.

The office of Mayor David Cicilline says that, as with every new business in Providence, the mayor hopes his brother's new enterprise is a success.
