Former East Haven Police Officer Jason Zullo will have to wait until at least this pring to find out his sentence after the court ruled that that decision will not be made until after the trial for two of his former co-workers is completed, according to a New Haven Register report.
An initial sentencing hearing for Zullo — who was among four East Haven Police offices indicted for alleged federal civil rights violations — took place early last month with no decision coming down from the court at its conclusion.
Instead, according to the report, Judge Alvin W. Thompson has ruled that Zullo will have to wait until after the trial for two of the other officers arrested, David Cari and Dennis Spaulding, takes place
The jury trial for the two men is scheduled to begin April 8 and could last into mid-May.
Zullo initially plead "not guilty" to the charges. But, like the fourth EHPD officer arrested Sgt David Miller before him, changed it to "guilty."
Miller's sentencing hearing was initially scheduled for Feb. 1, but has been delayed unti March 22, the newspaper reported.
