NEW HAVEN MAN SENTENCED TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR VIOLATING SUPERVISED RELEASE
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that DOMINICK ZAPPOLA, Jr., 46, of New Haven and Andes, New York, was sentenced yesterday, November 9, by Chief United States District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford to four months of imprisonment, followed by 12 months of supervised release, for violating the conditions of his supervised release that followed a previous federal conviction.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on March 24, 2009, Judge Thompson sentenced ZAPPOLA to five years of probation, with the first six months to be served in home confinement with electronic monitoring, for making a threatening phone call to an individual he knew.
On August 4, 2010, ZAPPOLA was arrested by the Regional Water Authority Police Department in New Haven after ZAPPOLA made threats to Regional Water Authority employees, including “...I want you to know, I’m a convicted felon and have a habit of killing attorneys. Look it up.”
Following yesterday’s court proceeding, Judge Thompson remanded ZAPPOLA to the custody of the United States Marshals Service to begin service of his sentence.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Anastasia Enos King and David T. Huang.
