Santore sentencing continued to June 24
SUNBURY - The sentencing of Robert Santore, 49, of Ranshaw, a police informant who played a key role in the conviction of Cornell and Diane Delvalle, of Coal Township, has been continued until the summer.
Santore, who remains free on bail, was scheduled to be sentenced by Northumberland County President Judge Robert B. Sacavage Monday morning, but that legal proceeding was continued until June 24 at the request of his attorney, Peter Campana of Williamsport.
Santore, whose sentencing has been postponed multiple times at the request of defense and prosecuting attorneys, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of manufacturing with intent to deliver a controlled substance filed by Shamokin Cpl. Bryan Primerano and two counts of criminal conspiracy filed by Coal Township Detective Jeff Brennan.
Northumberland County Assistant District Attorney Michael Toomey arranged a plea agreement for Santore in exchange for his testimony in the trial of the Delvalles, who were convicted by an all-female jury Jan. 20, 2012, of multiple-drug related offenses.
