Defense attorney Kimberly Shoen argued that Pasquarello was entitled to at least some credit, but prosecutor Lisa Cirulli disagreed. Wageling gave him credit for 19 days, with the possibility he could receive more pending a review. Questions arose over how long he had been held in Massachusetts.
Pasquarello remained silent through much of the sentencing, but did tell Wageling he has been incarcerated in the Bay State since his arrest two years ago.
He is serving a three-year prison sentence in Massachusetts for receiving stolen property and possession of burglary tools. Pasquarello has a criminal record dating back to the 1990s and was scheduled to be released in November 2013.
“He has a lengthy criminal history,” Cirulli said.
His New Hampshire sentence will be served concurrently with his sentence in Massachusetts. If convicted at trial, he could have received 10 to 30 years in prison.
