NEW HAVEN MAN TO SERVE AN ADDITIONAL 15 MONTHS IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR VIOLATING SUPERVISED RELEASE
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JASON ROMAN, also known as Jayson Roman, 28, of New Haven, was sentenced yesterday, August 10, by United States District Judge Mark R. Kravitz in New Haven to 15 months of imprisonment for violating the terms and conditions of his federal supervised release.
In April 2005, Judge Kravitz sentenced ROMAN to 57 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing crack cocaine. In October 2003, ROMAN sold crack to a cooperating witness. In April 2004, after being arrested by the New Haven Police Department for that sale, ROMAN was intercepted over a court-authorized wiretap arranging to meet a supplier of narcotics to buy crack and was, thereafter, observed by law enforcement officers meeting with the supplier.
ROMAN’s term of supervised release began on June 13, 2008. While on supervised release, ROMAN has possessed and used illegal drugs, has failed to report to the U.S. Probation Office as directed, has violated his curfew, and has associated with other convicted felons without the permission of his probation officer.
On March 13, 2010, ROMAN and an associate were shot while they sat in a parked car in New Haven. ROMAN’s associate, a convicted felon, was killed.
This case was prosecuted by Supervisory Assistant United States Attorney Anthony E. Kaplan.
