Hartford Man Pleads Guilty To Escape


Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ENRIQUE LUCIANO, also known as “Pucho,” 26, of Hartford, pleaded guilty today before Senior United States District Judge Warren W. Eginton in Bridgeport to one count of escape from the custody of the Attorney General.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on May 27, 2010, LUCIANO was sentenced in Hartford federal court to 60 months of imprisonment for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  On February 20, 2013, he was transferred to Watkinson House Residential Reentry Center, a halfway house in Hartford.  On July 11, 2013, after being denied a job search pass by Watkinson staff, LUCIANO was seen leaving the halfway house with most of his belongings.  He did not return.

On July 19, 2013, LUCIANO was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service.  At the time of his escape, LUCIANO had a projected release date of August 18, 2013.

Judge Eginton has scheduled sentencing for December 12, 2013, at which time LUCIANO faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.

LUCIANO has been detained since his arrest.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan S. Freimann.
