Judge denies former cop’s request for reduced sentence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A Superior Court judge has turned down a former North Providence police officer’s request for a lessened prison sentence.

Michael Ciresi is currently serving 20 years for burglarizing homes in Pawtucket and North Providence, as well as using a firearm in the commission of his crimes and harboring a criminal.

He was convicted in 2008 and is serving out his sentence in a New Hampshire prison.

During a hearing earlier this month, Ciresi pleaded with the judge that his sentence was excessive and expressed remorse for his actions.
