One man has been sentenced for his role in a steroid manufacturing and distribution conspiracy case. 35-year old Jeffrey Gentile was part of a ring headed by former Newtown Police Sgt. Steven Santucci. Gentile was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation. He was also ordered to perform 150 hours of community service.
The Ansonia man admitted that he obtained steroids from another person in the ring, paying him in part with Adderall. At the time of this offense, Gentile was a Connecticut Judicial Marshal.
During the course of the investigation, law enforcement officers seized hundreds of vials of steroids, approximately 600 grams of raw testosterone powder, approximately 350 grams of powder cocaine, and four long guns.
Santucci was sentenced to 16 months of imprisonment, six months of home confinement, 120 hours of community service and a $5,000 fine. 8 other people have also been sentenced for their roles in the case.
One person charged in the investigation will be sentenced next month.
