Joe Valachi had been in the Mafia for years, but hadn't risen much in the ranks. But when he was facing a life sentence, there was one group of people who thought he was high enough - for information. The FBI saw in Valachi a chance to learn the mob's structure; and Valachi saw a chance to get out of jail.
