Bridgeport man convicted of a string of crimes

January 28, 2019

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut jury has found a Bridgeport man guilty of multiple felonies, including armed robbery and attempted murder.

Officials say 20-year-old Onaje Smith could face up to 206 years in prison after his conviction Friday on more than a dozen felony counts.

The Hour reports he will return to the Stamford courthouse on April 5 for sentencing.

The conviction came after a two-week trial prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Michelle Manning, who put up dozens of witnesses and exhibits to gain the guilty verdicts.

Prosecutors say Smith and an accomplice were responsible for a string of crimes in Fairfield County in 2017, including the robbery and shooting of a food delivery driver.

His alleged accomplice awaits trial.
