Ex-Southington contractor gets prison

The former owner of a Southington business that installs fire-protection systems will spend 16 months in prison for his role in a construction kickback scheme, federal authorities say. Michael Uszakiewicz, 52, of Prospect, was sentenced Friday in Hartford federal court on his conviction of conspiracy to commit wire fraud for paying as much as $500,000 in bribes to obtain construction contracts in Stamford, the Connecticut U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday. He had faced a maximum prison term of 20 years.
