A former Newtown man serving a federal prison sentence has been given jail time in a state case.  William Trudeau was in Danbury Superior Court yesterday on a charge of violating probation.  A court clerk says the 53-year old was sentenced to five years in prison, to run concurrently to the 16-year federal sentence. 

 

Trudeau, the former owner of Newtown Oil, was sentenced in 2008 to probation for taking $262,000 in payment from elderly customers, but never delivering their fuel.  The 25 year prison sentence was suspended so he could make restitution. 

 

In 2010, federal authorities charged Trudeau in a mortgage fraud scheme, violating his probation in that state case.
