Prostitute who provided daughter, niece to Waterbury mayor sentenced

The prostitute who provided her pre-teen daughter and niece to then-Waterbury Mayor Phil Giordano for sex was sentenced Friday to 10 years in federal prison.The woman could have received up to 20 years under federal guidelines on charges that she conspired with Giordano to entice the girls, who were 8 and 10, into performing oral sex on the mayor a number of times between November 2000 and July 2001. But the woman's cooperation in prosecuting Giordano, who is now serving 37 years for abusing the girls, was taken into consideration by U.S. District Court Judge Alan Nevas. With time already served, the woman could be eligible for release from prison in 2009.
