Meriden Man Sentenced For Dealing Cocaine
JAN 17 -- June Stansbury, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration in New England and Kevin J. O’Connor, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that DOMINGO MEDINA, 36, of East Woodland Street, Meriden, was sentenced today by Senior United States District Judge Peter C. Dorsey in New Haven to approximately 16 months of imprisonment, time already served, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing between 50 and 100 grams of cocaine. Judge Dorsey ordered that MEDINA spend the first four months of his supervised release term in home confinement with electronic monitoring. MEDINA pleaded guilty to the charge on October 30, 2007. He has been in federal custody since his arrest on October 5, 2006.
On October 4, 2006, a federal grand jury returned an Indictment charging MEDINA and several other individuals with various narcotics offenses involving the distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine in central Connecticut. The charge against MEDINA stems from sales of cocaine that he conducted with customers in 2005 and 2006 inside the Latin Social Club in Meriden. MEDINA’s brother, Eduardo Colon, was previously sentenced to 120 months of imprisonment for selling multi-ounce quantities of crack cocaine in June 2006 inside the Latin Social Club.
This investigation was a collaborative effort of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Meriden Police Department and the Waterbury Police Departments.
