Man faces sentencing in Donovan case
NEW HAVEN — A Middlebury man who owned two roll-your-own tobacco shops in Waterbury is facing sentencing for his role in a campaign financing plot surrounding former state House Speaker Chris Donovan’s failed congressional campaign in 2012.
Paul Rogers is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in federal court in New Haven. He pleaded guilty a year ago to devising a scheme to bribe a public official and conspiring to make false statements to the Federal Election Commission and impede the agency’s enforcement of federal campaign finance laws.
Prosecutors say Rogers and others schemed to hide the source of $27,500 in contributions to Donovan’s campaign in hopes of trying to block state legislation that would be harmful to the roll-your-own tobacco industry.
