Guilford Man Pleads Guilty to Failing to Report to Prison
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut
John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that BRIAN PAGE, 44, of Guilford, pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford to one count of failure to surrender for service of his federal sentence.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on October 17, 2017, Judge Thompson sentenced Page to 97 months of imprisonment, followed by four years of supervised release, for his role in a scheme to distribute oxycodone that was obtained through fraudulent prescriptions. Judge Thompson ordered Page, who was released on a $200,000 bond, to surrender for service of his sentence on November 17, 2017.
Page was subsequently designated by the Bureau of Prisons to the Federal Correctional Institute at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
Page did not surrender to FCI Fort Dix on November 17, 2017. The U.S. Marshals Service located and arrested Page at a hotel in Branford on December 7, 2017.
The charge of failure to surrender for service of a federal sentence carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years, which must be imposed consecutively to the underlying sentence. Judge Thompson scheduled sentencing for February 5, 2019.
Page has been detained since his arrest.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jocelyn Courtney Kaoutzanis and Anthony E. Kaplan.
