NORWICH – Recent court documents indicate a Norwich woman wanting to gain release pending trial will remain behind bars until her scheduled court date April 28.

Linda O’Connor, 46, of Norwich, who allegedly sold a 12-year-old child for sex, petitioned a federal magistrate in March to release her with electronic monitoring. The petition was granted by Magistrate Judge George Lowe.

The decision, was overruled recently by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Thomas J. McAvoy, stating, “O’Connor must remain behind bars because she remains a flight risk and a threat to the community.”

O’Connor and Dean Sacco, a New Jersey man who allegedly had up to five sexual encounters with a 12-year-old victim, were charged in a seven-count federal indictment in connection with the alleged sale of a girl for sex in exchange for overdue rent.

Court papers indicate, in February 2007, the victim, who is now 14-years-old, told a teacher she had sexual contact with an adult male. According to court document, the male has since been identified as Sacco.
