A New York man was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison today in connection with a 2004 shooting at a Westport home.
Brian Minicieli, 25, of Staten Island, N.Y. was sentenced in Norwalk Superior Court by Judge Burton Kaplan.
The charges stem from a Nov. 13, 2004, incident in which a 20-year-old Wilton man was shot and wounded as he tried to break up a robbery at a birthday party on Franklin Street attended by about a dozen guests. (See WestportNow Nov. 14, 2004)
In June 2006, Mincieli was again arrested by Westport police, this time charged with failure to appear. (See WestportNow June 2, 2006)
