[Ross Garber] also argued that Huang had been under home confinement for 7 1/2 months since his arrest. [Peter Dorsey] concluded that Huang should get credit for the time, and settled on probation.
Huang's wife, [Cathy Huang], and a sister testified on his behalf Tuesday. More than a dozen friends and relatives wrote letters to the court extolling Huang's virtues, from helping his family through rough times to co-founding a church for Taiwanese Christians. His siblings noted that their father died when Huang was 15, and that he took it upon himself to hold the family together.
Born in Taiwan, Huang came to the United States in 1971 and is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He was the longtime owner of MacAndrew's Restaurant in Middletown, a popular spot for students and politicians. He ran an export business under the same name out of his home at 11 Reiman Drive in Cromwell.
