Rockland man completes deferred charge for prison contraband trafficking
Rockland — A 27-year-old Rockland man charged in October 2011 for trafficking in prison contraband and criminal attempt was sentenced to 10 days in Knox County Jail.
Adam J. Capizzano appeared before Justice Jeffrey Hjelm in Knox County Superior Court in a deferred disposition case, one year after his original hearing. Hjelm sentenced him to six months in jail with all but 10 days suspended and he will get credit for time served.
By entering a guilty plea on the original trafficking charge, Capizzano was able to get the count dismissed and his criminal attempt reduced to a class D misdemeanor.
Hjelm praised Capizzano for his participation in an aftercare program and his hard work in a counseling program in the year since his initial appearance in court.
Capizzano will still have one year of probation, the judge said.
