I'm glad to see that the judge was impressed with such a liar. The prosecutors didn't mention how many times his story changed and how he was told was to say at the hearing he testified at. They also say that he helped in 26 convictions of other drug dealers, but the reality is most of the people who were covicted were just people with families who got caught up in a bad situation with a very selfish and greedy person. Most of them held very good jobs and got up and went to work every day to support their families. More than you will ever be able to say for him. His business was a front to sell his drugs out of.Which his parents were allowed to sell and keep the money of the the sale. He was driving around in a $60,000 cadillac escalade and having very expensive lunches, buying nice clothes and most times was very intoxicated. So when he says he is embarrased that doesn't seem to be to true when all he did was show off. So the moral of the story is if you are going to be a drug dealer make sure you are the boss and make all the money. Have fun spending it and when you get caught just rat on the people you got caught up in it. In the end you will be rewarded for bringing down "drug dealers". The only thing I have hope for is that karma really does exist.

resident just so you know there were at least 2 lunches at a local restaurant one cost $1,800 and the other was in the neighborhood of $3,000.I just wonder what he had to forfeit to the Feds other than $250K. i wonder what the profit was on 250lbs of coke not counting the oxycotens and pot. i wonder where the money came to pay his 2 high priced lawyers that defense had to exceed $100K. His story of not being able to work in peoples homes was pure BS because at the time of his sentencing he was working as a heating & air conditioning installer. I guess with the Feds as long as they get the numbers (arrests)it does not matter how much drugs you sold you will get a light sentence. the prosecutor and the judge should be ashamed of themselves for letting this dirt bag off easy.The prosecutor made it sound as if Marrero was a choir boy instead of a major drug dealer.

The 26 people he helped put away were people who helped him deal drugs, the lesson is play the system like a paino. Maybe Duffy had a little crush on the weight lifter. The joke is on the community 4 years for 20 years of crime not bad.

How dare they praise him for the "good work" he did for ratting on other people. He was the ringleader and he walks away with a slap on his hand???!!!!??? I know people who were less involved and got more time than this piece of crap. Now he feels bad for his wife and children???? He wasn't thinking of them when he was eating $3000 lunches and driving a 60k car!
This is disgusting and I cannot believe he got away with it!

How can you say that all 26 people who were convicted were just average people with families who got caught up in a bad situation with a greedy person? I'm pretty sure these people chose to do what they did on their own. That does not make Marrero any more in the wrong than the other 26 involved. Each and everyone, including Marrero, was wrong and you people need to stop pointing fingers at just one person. Maybe the people less involved got more time because they refused to tell the truth. And anyways, how does everyone know the total dollar amount for Marrero's lunches? Its pretty scary to know that people pay attention to other people's lives this much to know their lunch total!!

LLLLLD: are you kidding me. The lunch totals are common knowledge here. They went to a local restaurant and made a show of these lunches including ordering bottles of Dom P.If you are afraid that someone knows your lunch total dont make a show of it like he did. Most of the people that were arrested were addicts and needed their drugs ( no excuse) but an addict is different from a pusher that is in it only for the moneys. The people that got more time refused to rat. I can guareentee you that not everything Marrero told the feds was the truth.He dealt drugs for 20 years made a ton of money and only got 4 years. You think there is no difference between an addict who needs the drugs and a pusher that only wants the money. What planet are you from?

I happen to be realted to some of the 26 people who ere involved in this case, and true they all deserved what they got. BUT, Marrero lied about alot of so called "facts" he claimed happened. I remeber when he walked around the streets of Bridgeport acting like a true kingpin wearing his tinted sunglasses and eating his 3000k lunches ( which by the way is true) He deserves way more time what what he did and because he ratted he got a slap on the hand. As far as the others telling the truth as you put it, They weren't given the chance because this slob Marrero was brought to testify false facts to cover his ass! Maybe YOU should know the facts before you point fingers!

This is a pure joke. His wife knew and his family knew. It's a joke, everyone knew he picked up drugs with HIS KIDS in the car. What kind of mother is she, she let her kids get involved in that. Keep going to church maybe GOD will forgive you for putting your kids in danger and for marrying a man you knew sold drugs. It's a joke. It really is, he deserved way more than he got. he did it for years!!! It was an embarressment for his wife, she wasn't that ashamed to drive an Escalade around and spend the cash. Does she really think no one noticed. stop playing innocent.

False facts?? So recored phone conversations are now known as false facts? AND AS I SAID - EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM - INCLUDING MARRERO - WAS WRONG. You seem to say they all deserve what they got, but the only one I see you pointing fingers at is Marrero. And I'm sick of hearing this whole drug addict, drug pusher BS.. no one forces you to get hooked on drugs, give me a break. and no one forces you to sell them either. Everyone needs to just shut their mouths and take responsibility for their own actions. And I'm sure all of his 'boys' were enjoying those 3,000 lunches that he was paying for. They enjoyed that lifestyle just as much as he did, so they were all greedy and guilty,(not disincluding him.). And half these other people who claim to be "drug addicts" ... stop crying - no one made you do it!

Nobody can argue your point HOWEVER a rat is a rat and for those who knew him know that he is a liar and a kingpin and he deserved more than 3.5 years.

By the way, Before you bring up facts such as recorded phone conversations- were you there in court to listen to the conversations??? Do you know what was on them??? I was in court two times and none of those phone conversations were ever played- WONDER WHY??????

LLLLLD you must live a glorious life. None in your family was ever hooked on drugs. if that is the case than you are one lucky person. The reason everyone is pointing a finger at that scum bag Marrero is because he is a rat and a liar. Its not what was on the tapes its the embellishment and added stuff that Marrero gave the feds.Alot of the tapes had marginal information on them and Marrero filled in the gaps from his point of view

3.5 years is a definite shock... but from what it seems - it looks like he tried to take responsibilty for his own actions while telling the truth about the whole situation. No one should blame him for that. The bottom line is- they all got caught out and need to deal with it on their own. And I hope everyone can agree that they should all be able to take this as a lesson learned. Because 3.5 years or 20 years - you're still away from your family and locked up in prison, and that's no picnic.

Does the 4 years sentence includes immunity for Marrero other family memebers still involved in cocaine trafficking. Maybe the feds will let them sell for 10 or 15 years and then make an arrest and have them snitch on other people in return for 1 year. Maybe the relative is carrying on with the uncles continuing criminal enterprize.
