A part of any parole requirement from any FBI informant is that they are not allowed to covert with former associates and or former criminals. John Alite for whatever the reason repeatedly hung out with former confederates as well as convicted criminals, which is completely against his parole.
One has to wonder how guys like Joey Merlino get hemmed up for having a conversation with members and former members yet a rat like John Alite can continuously hang out with old members and other informants, which were all against his parole and yet, he wasn't violated once.

Richie Olivieri and I met at the New York Film Academy, where he was coming in to try and get his story filmed, and was taking part in John Alite's "The Perfect Gangster." John introduced me to Richie who seemed pretty decent, but was interested in selling his story more than anything. He came through the back door and was worried about meeting with Alite probably for multiple reasons.
Jimmy Calandra I have spoken to briefly but have never met him. He's another guy whose looking to make a career out of his past and recently announced he is writing his own book. Both he and John were at a fund raiser in Ohio.
Sean Richard was relatively unknown to me, and I met him several times with John Alite. He and John have business together, and I had no idea that his father in law was former Decavalcante Crime Boss John Riggi. He ratted his own father in law out, and can be found around John Alite the majority of the time.
Patsy Andriano. I never met Patsy. He was supposed to show up in Atlantic City, but for whatever the reason didn't show. John has been around Patsy a lot since he's been out, once again against his parole.

All of t
hese guys, in one shape or another, are either informants, or did time as a result of being involved in crimes. It's sort of a new version of My Blue Heaven. If we are going to hold everyone by the same standards, and if John Alite claims of never breaking a single rule while on parole then I simply offer you photographic proof of his violations.
There could be many reasons as to why John Alite never seemed to get any trouble for hanging out with past co-horts. We could speculate that it's because nobody knew, but if I had to speculate or given an opinion, I would say it's because he very much could still be an informant. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me at all.
Alite says otherwise.
ADDED: Since there are those trying to debate me on this issue, here is the direct parole rules for John Alite:
Three of the Standard Conditions of Supervision restricting Alite's movement are: 1) the defendant shall not leave the judicial district without the permission of the court or probation officer and; 9) the defendant shall not associate with any persons engaged in criminal activity and shall not associate with any person convicted of a felony, unless granted permission to do so by the probation officer. 13) as directed by the probation officer, the defendant shall notify third parties of risks that may be occasioned by the defendant's criminal record or personal history or characteristics and shall permit the probation officer to make such notifications and to confirm the defendant's compliance with such notifications. Further one of the Special Conditions of Supervision is that: X. The defendant is prohibited from associating with specific groups, such as organized crime figures or families.
