HARTFORD — Prosecutors say a Bridgeport man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison for heroin distribution and firearm possession offenses.

Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham said Friday 43-year-old Ismael Mangual was sentenced in New Haven to 11 years, five months in prison, followed by four years of supervised release.

Milford Police stopped a car Mangual was driving Aug. 31, 2017.

Durham says he didn’t have a driver’s license, the car was unregistered and uninsured, and a six-year-old boy wasn’t in a car seat or wearing seatbelt. He says officers found two handguns, one of which was loaded, heroin and a scale.

Mangual pleaded guilty in March to possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin and possession a firearm in furtherance of a narcotics trafficking offense.
