Report: Sentencing for Ex-East Haven Police Officer Delayed

Jason Zullo, who was among four East Haven officers arrested for alleged civil rights violations, will have to wait for the trial of his former co-workers David Cari and Dennis Spaulding to be completed before he learns his legal fate.

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.

Rumor is: the judge is getting aggravated with the prosecutor in this case. A so called "racial profiling" and "targeting hispanics" case, but the government accepted plea agreements for minor incidents, involving white non-hispanic males? So minor they could have been dealt with internally, with suspensions or retraining. Any person who attended the sentencing hearing for Mr. Zullo, would have seen the judges outrage at the federal prosecutor in this case. So much so, that he refuses to sentence Officer Zullo until hearing the rest of the case.

Sonofabitch stole my handle. Mimic and stalk, provoke and annoy. These are the childish tactics of Rovian Republicans.

Jacobo is amused by the host of imitators and dis-info agents operating out of the East Haven Town Hall, trailing me like a pack of hungry puppies, barking at my heel, tails wagging, fighting each other for Jacobo's attention, eagerly awaiting the next Milkbone from the master's hand. Julie and Patch readers, please note I did not comment on this story. Thank you.

It dosent seem like the judge is "disgusted" with the prosecution at all. This ruling implies that the judge didn't want to sentence Zullo until he heard the full story of what Zullo, and his two righ-hand buddies Spaulding and Cari, we're actually doing to terrorize citizens of East Haven. Zullo and his lawyers are the only ones who wanted the court to sentence him now. This ruling clearly implies that the judge ruled against Zullo's "I'm so innocent" argument and all the other fake, nonsensical, and manufactured claims Zullo made. Zullo is going away for a long, long time.

Zullo and along Spaulding,Carrie and Miller are no longer a threat to anyone.They are running scared they are cowards I am sure they are ratting on each other and more than likely there will be more arrest in that department.The code of blue silence has been spilled out.They will never be able to find employment I wonder how they feel.
