Man who conspired with ex-NHler gets prison
BOSTON - A Massachusetts man who authorities say conspired with a former NHL player in a scheme to illegally sell prescription painkillers is headed to federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 36-year-old Christopher Alonardo was sentenced Tuesday to more than a year behind bars. Alonardo pleaded guilty in December to oxycodone distribution charges. Federal prosecutors say Alonardo and Kevin Stevens conspired to sell painkillers between August 2015 and March 2016.
