HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A Hartford man will spend more than five years in prison for his role in a heroin trafficking ring.
A judge sentenced Robinson Crucetts, 50, of Hartford, to 66 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release during an appearance in U.S. District Court in Hartford on Tuesday.
Crucetts was found to be involved in a heroin trafficking organization involving people who live in New York and in the Dominican Republic.
He was arrested in September 2014, and a federal grand jury indicted Crucetts on 13 counts related to heroin trafficking and money laundering that same month.
A year later, in September 2015, Crucetts pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute heroin.
The other people accused of being involved in that drug ring pleaded guilty and will be sentenced at a later date.
