Sex Offender Sentenced to Prison Term for Violating Supervised Release

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that DONALD LUCIANO, 45, last residing in Bridgeport, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to 11 months of imprisonment for violating the terms and conditions of his federal supervised release.

On July 18, 2013, LUCIANO was sentenced in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to 24 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, for possessing child pornography. He began supervision in the District of Connecticut on October 31, 2014.

According to court documents and statements made in court, LUCIANO engaged in numerous violations of the terms of his supervised release, including having unsupervised contact with minors, using or accessing unauthorized computers, traveling out of state on multiple occasions without prior permission (including trips to Block Island, R.I., and the Hamptons, N.Y.), associating with felons, and failing to give truthful answers and reports to the U.S. Probation Office.

LUCIANO has been detained since his arrest on August 1, 2016, for supervised release violations. When he is released from prison, he faces five years of supervised release, the first six months of which he will serve in a halfway house. LUCIANO also faces pending state larceny charges on allegations of fraud.

This matter was brought by the U.S. Probation Office with additional investigation provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David T. Huang.
