Treatment is part of plea deal in bank robbery


August 4 – Anthony P. Daglio, who robbed an Enfield bank in December, then pleaded guilty and was sentenced in June to the five months he had already spent in custody, was made to participate in a program of treatment as a condition of his probation, according to an audio recording of his sentencing.

The Journal Inquirer acquired a copy of the recording after some questioned why Daglio, 40, of 7 Donna St., was sentenced to five months in prison for the Dec. 22 robbery of the Chase Bank branch at 50 Hazard Ave., which he accomplished with a bomb threat.


DEFENDANT: Anthony P. Daglio, 40, of 7 Donna St., Enfield

GUILTY PLEA: First degree robbery

SENTENCE: Seven years, suspended after five months, already served, and two years probation, with terms that include mental health and addictions assessment and treatment, random drug testing, taking prescription drugs, being away from Chase Bank in Enfield, and not possessing narcotics, firearms, bullets or other weapons

The June 1 sentencing record in Hartford Superior Court reveals that attending the program was central to Daglio’s plea bargain, but details are scarce.

The recording does not reveal the name of the program, nor its duration, nor the nature of the services it offers. The brief recording includes repeated references to Daglio having mental health issues, but their nature is not detailed.

The probation conditions imposed by Judge Kevin C. Doyle include requirements for Daglio to participate in both mental health and addictions assessment and treatment. But no one said at sentencing whether drug treatment was part of the program.

Public defender Johanna Canning and prosecutor Robert Diaz did not return calls seeking comment on the sentence.

The judge said at sentencing that Canning persuaded prosecutors the program was appropriate. But there was no detailed discussion of why officials reached that conclusion.

Online court records show Daglio’s first-degree robbery conviction in the Chase Bank heist is his only criminal conviction in Connecticut in the past 10 years, and a nationwide search of federal court records does not reveal any criminal convictions in these courts. It’s unclear whether Daglio has convictions in another state or convictions ten or more years ago in Connecticut.

Judge-imposed conditions of probation include taking prescribed medication, reporting to a probation officer who specializes in mental health issues, submitting to random drug tests, staying away from the bank robbed by Daglio and not to possess narcotics, firearms, bullets or other weapons. .

Daglio’s initial plea bargain, concluded on May 16, called for him to be sentenced to six months in prison. But the prosecutor and judge agreed to cut it to five months when Canning discovered a bed was available in a treatment program on June 6.

The judge explained that the month removed from Daglio’s immediate jail sentence was now part of the potential prison sentence he faces if he violates the terms of release.

The judge put Daglio on probation for two years, with the possibility of up to six years and seven months in prison for any probation violation.
