HALF PAST DEAD star Steven Seagal is set to win a real-life victory over the Mafia.

The self-made aikido champion was celebrating last night (7AUG03) after ex-pal JULIUS NASSO reportedly agreed to plead guilty in a extortion case at BROOKLYN FEDERAL COURT, New York following the GAMBINO family's alleged attempt to extort $3.2 million (GBP2 million) from Seagal.

Seagal's lawyer, MARTIN POLLNER, said his client was pleased at the plea agreement.
