Giuseppe A. Scordato, 48, was sentenced to 48 months in priso, three years supervised release and a $2,000 fine after previously pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, Fishman said.
Scardato and Eugene Brown, 71, of Atlantic City, pleaded guilty to multiple charges in connection with the crime in March. Brown also pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm at the time.
Scordato obtained oxycodone-based pills from three owners of JoJo’s Steakhouse and Giorgianni’s Clubhouse, both in Trenton, between November of 2011 and July of 2012, according to documents filed in the case. The owners were Joseph Giorgianni, Mary Manfredo and Charles Hall III.
Scardato sold the pills and turned over the profits to the owners in exchange for a portion of the profits.
Brown admitted that on May 12, 2012, he delivered oxycodone-based pills from Atlantic City to Hall in Trenton, and that he previously gave pills to Hall while in Atlantic City and Camden, for profit.
