Hartford Man Sentenced To Eight Months In Prison For Escaping From Halfway House


Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ENRIQUE LUCIANO, also known as “Pucho,” 26, of Hartford, was sentenced today by Senior U.S. District Judge Warren W. Eginton in Bridgeport to eight months imprisonment for escaping from a halfway house in Hartford.

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 facility 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.

LUCIANO has been detained since his arrest.  On September 19, 2013, he pleaded guilty to one count of escape from the custody of the Attorney General.

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