% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 Leonard C Boyle, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that DOMENICO SANDALO, 46, of Norwalk, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant to 120 months of imprisonment, followed by eight years of supervised release, for trafficking cocaine and other drugs.  Judge Bryant also ordered Sandalo to pay a $5,000 fine.

Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the sentencing occurred via videoconference.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Sandalo was previously convicted of federal narcotics trafficking offenses in 2011 and 2013.  In June 2019, the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, Stamford Police Department and Norwalk Police Department received information that Sandalo was in possession of a large quantity of cocaine, oxycodone pills and marijuana.  On June 7, 2019, Sandalo was arrested after investigators conducted a court-authorized search of his residence and seized approximately 600 grams of cocaine, six kilograms of marijuana, 77 oxycodone pills, 46 fentanyl pills, 771 THC vape cartridges, and $53,943 in cash.

On December 11, 2020, Sandalo pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.

Sandalo, who is released on a $1.5 million bond, is required to report to prison on August 4, 2021.

The DEA’s Bridgeport HIDTA Task Force, includes personnel from the DEA Bridgeport Resident Office, the Connecticut State Police, and the Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford, Stratford, Milford and Danbury Police Departments.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria del Pilar Gonzalez.
