Guilford Man Receives Additional Prison Time for 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, 45, of Guilford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford to an additional three months of imprisonment for failing 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.  He has been detained since his arrest.

Judge Thompson ordered Page to serve three months of imprisonment, followed by six months of home confinement, when Page completes his original 97-month sentence.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jocelyn Courtney Kaoutzanis and Anthony E. Kaplan.
