Bridgeport developer learns his fate

(07/21/03) NEW HAVEN - The punishments continue to be handed down in the Bridgeport corruption scandal. On Monday, developer Al Lenoci Jr. learned his fate.

Lenoci will spend 18 months behind bars. In addition, he will have to pay more than $500,000 in fines and serve 200 hours of community service after his prison term. Lenoci provided crucial information regarding others involved in the scandal, and he was rewarded for his cooperation with a lighter sentence. He could have been sentenced to 4 years in jail.

Lenoci first made headlines in October 2001, when he and his father, Al Lenoci Sr., both admitted to paying off decision makers in exchange for preferential treatment on city projects.

Al Lenoci Sr. will be sentenced on Tuesday.
