Man gets 3 years for peddling pills

DANVERS — A North Shore man who admitted selling hundreds of pills of a prescription drug called Opana to an undercover state trooper was sentenced yesterday to three years in state prison.

Michael Dellorfano, 35, of Winthrop was involved in three separate transactions with the trooper in July 2011, including one outside Texas Roadhouse in Danvers on July 8, according to prosecutors. Two other transactions took place in Saugus, one of those at another chain eatery, Border Cafe.

Dellorfano, who was originally charged with trafficking, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of possession of an opiate with intent to distribute, two counts of distribution of a Class B drug, and conspiracy to violate the drug laws.

Following his three-year term, Dellorfano will spend two years on probation, with conditions that include random drug tests to ensure that he is following Judge John Lu’s order not to use drugs.
