Man sentenced for role in drug ring


A man has been sentenced for his role in a New Jersey prescription drug ring.

Back in 2009, Brandon Stillo was one of eight men busted in a Warren County operation, which police say operated just doors away from a police station.

On Friday, Stillo was sentenced to 180 days behind bars.


According to prosecutor Michael McDonald, in 2009, Stillo was indicted, but since has gone on to earn an engineering degree from Rutgers University and got an engineering job.

McDonald said Stillo can apply for Warren County's Labor Assistance Program (CLAP), and if accepted, he could serve his 180-day sentence on weekends.

That route would take about a year and a half, McDonald said.

Stillo is the son of Frank Stillo, who was accused of heading up an Oxycontin ring in Pohatcong Township.
