Hartford: Jason Figueroa Sentenced for Multiple Offenses

Gang Member, Jason Figueroa Sentenced to More Than 7 Years in Prison for Gun and Drug Offenses

(STL.News) John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JASON FIGUEROA, also known as “Hood” and “Hoodie,” 31, of Hartford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Kari A. Dooley to 87 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for crack cocaine distribution and firearm possession offenses.

Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the sentencing occurred via videoconference.

According to court documents and statements made in court, this matter stems from an investigation conducted by the FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force and Hartford Police Department into the trafficking of narcotics and associated violence in Hartford’s South End by members and associates of the Almighty Latin Kings Nation (“Latin Kings”).  In December 2019, investigators learned that Figueroa, a member of the Latin Kings, was distributing crack cocaine, and that he possessed several firearms at his Franklin Avenue residence.  Between December 2019 and March 2020, law enforcement made six controlled purchases of crack from Figueroa.

On March 23, 2020, Figueroa was the victim of shooting on Bond Street and suffered gunshot injuries to his face.
