5 sentenced in Bridgeport crime crackdown

Posted: Updated:

Five Bridgeport men have been sentenced to prison after a crackdown on narcotics and weapons dealing at a housing complex.

Federal prosecutors said Wednesday four pleaded guilty in Hartford federal court to heroin possession and dealing charges. Forty-one-year-old Hassan Rogers was sentenced to 30 months, and his sons, 24-year-old Rashim Carter and 23-year-old Jamiel Thompson, were sentenced to 18 months. Twenty-nine-year-old Michael Newsome, Thompson's uncle, was sentenced to 30 months.

Prosecutors said Newsome and Carter were sentenced Wednesday. Rogers and Thompson were sentenced Monday.

Also Monday, 19-year-old Alex Santana was sentenced to 10 months in prison followed by four months of community detention after pleading guilty to illegally selling a gun.

The investigation at the Trumbell Gardens complex began after a man was fatally shot there last May. No one has been charged in the killing.
