NORWICH – Linda O’Connor, 46, of 14 Miller St., Norwich, was arrested Sunday by the Norwich Police Department on a federal warrant and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Also charged in the complaint was Dean M. Sacco, 48, currently held at the county jail on rape charges. The description on the warrant read, “buying, selling a child.”
O’Connor was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child last spring in circumstances involving a 12-year-old girl allegedly being sexually exploited by a landlord, Sacco, in exchange for rent.
The extent of her involvement was never clarified by investigators and the official charge cited her for not properly monitoring the child.
