Drita D’Avanzo’s Husband Lee D’Avanzo Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison For Gun Charge!

Lee D’Avanzo, the husband of former Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, was sentenced to more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to a gun charge, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

Lee appeared in federal court in Brooklyn on Friday, August 7, for the courthouse’s first in-person hearing since the coronavirus pandemic began in March. Judge Rachel Kovner ordered him to serve 64 months behind bars for being a felon in possession of a weapon.

Drita and Lee’s daughters, Aleeya and Gizelle, sat in the gallery during the hearing, and the former VH1 reality star broke down in tears outside after Lee’s sentencing, according to the publication.

Lee previously pleaded guilty to the charge after narcotics officers discovered a pistol, a revolver, and drugs including marijuana and Xanax in the D’Avanzo family’s Staten Island, New York, home in December 2019. Prosecutors had recommended 37 to 46 months in prison for Lee, but the judge upped the time due to his lengthy criminal history.

“He has six prior convictions, including two prior federal convictions,” Kovner said, per the Daily News, according to Us Weekly. “He violated supervised release with a burglary offense, breaking into a bank and trying to get into a vault with high-speed drills. … Two prior sentences of approximately 60 months were not sufficient to deter the defendant from serious crimes.”

After the hearing, one of Lee and Drita’s daughters told the newspaper, “The sentence was unfair. It’s bulls–t.”
