One of three men authorities say took part in a 2007 home invasion at a New York socialite’s Connecticut estate during which the victims were injected with what they were told was a lethal virus has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ALEXANDRU LUCIAN NICOLESCU, 41, a citizen of Romania, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford to 121 months of imprisonment for his participation in a 2007 Connecticut home invasion.
The intruders bound and blindfolded the two adult victims and injected each with a substance the intruders claimed was a deadly virus. The intruders ordered the victims to pay $8.5 million or else they would be left to die from the lethal injection.
