Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JOHN IVALDI, 59, of Palm Bay, Florida, and formerly of South Windsor, Connecticut, pleaded guilty today before United States District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to one count of filing a false federal tax return.
