Drug conspiracy trial begins for former Manchester school art teacher
In his opening argument, Assistant County Attorney Michael Zaino said Tagalakis Fedor may not have signed paperwork formalizing a conspiracy to sell drugs, primarily heroin, out of her Sagamore Street residence, but he promised to present evidence from which jurors could infer an agreement.
Zaino said there are eight elements that make up the conspiracy amongst Tagalakis Fedor, Doane, White and others known and unknown. Among the elements: Doane packaged heroin and sold it out of the residence; Doane purchased a stolen gun for protection; White bought ammunition for the gun; and Doane carried that gun with him when he sold heroin.
Zaino said the prosecution only has to prove one of those elements and Tagalakis Fedor doesn’t have to know of the overt act to be guilty of conspiracy.
Prieto said Tagalakis Fedor went voluntarily to the police station and spoke with police, twice.
He said the police will testify that Tagalakis Fedor confessed, but, despite having cameras and microphones built into interview rooms at the new police station on Valley Street, nobody recorded the interviews.
The cameras and microphones are controlled by a single switch, he said. “No one hit that switch,” said Prieto. Why not? Prieto said the response from the detective in charge was: “I don’t know.”
Prieto said White told police the drugs they found during a search of the residence were his and he told police: “Lisa knew nothing about those drugs.”
As for explicit or implicit agreements about drug sales, the defense attorney said: “There are none.”
The trial resumes Wednesday morning in Hillsborough County Superior Court North.
