Former Stamford resident Frank Green Sr. was sentenced to 39 months in prison Tuesday on federal narcotics trafficking charges. U.S. District Judge Robert N. Chatigny, sitting in Hartford, also gave Green three years of supervised release. Green, 46, was convicted for his role in a cocaine distribution conspiracy, a release from U.S. Attorney David B. Fein said.
Court documents showed that Green purchased cocaine from Gavin Hammett, one of the other co-defendants in the case, and distributed it to others, the release said. Between March and June 2010, court records showed, Green bought about 300 to 400 grams of cocaine. He pleaded guilty on Dec. 28, 2010, to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Green and Hammett were among 20 people arrested as a result of Operation Hammertime , a four-month Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force wiretap investigation. Law enforcement seized over one kilogram of cocaine, over 200 grams of crack-cocaine, multiple bundles of heroin, seven vehicles, over $100,000 in cash and two firearms.
Green has been in custody since his arrest on June 17, 2010. His criminal record includes seven felony convictions for narcotics and firearms violation.
Hammett has also pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.
