Bail revoked for Albion man awaiting sentencing for selling ‘wax’

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 15 February 2017 at 12:58 pm

ALBION – An Albion man awaiting sentencing for selling “wax,” a highly potent form of concentrated marijuana, had his bail revoked today after he allegedly sent a contract with a confidential informant to someone on social media.

Adam Gallo, 31, of Eagle Harbor Road on Dec. 12, 2016, admitted in court to selling the concentrated marijuana on Aug. 9.

He pled guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree and could face up to 2 ½ years in prison when he is sentenced on March 6. He has no prior criminal record.

Gallo allegedly shared the contract with a confidential informant used by the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force.

Publishing that contract on social media may have put the informant in danger, District Attorney Joe Cardone said.

“We’re concerned with the safety of the informants and the fact that people are disseminating their criminal history,” Cardone said after the court appearance today in front of County Court Judge James Punch.

Gallo had been free on $10,000 bail, but the judge revoked bail today and intends to have Gallo in jail until his sentencing.

Michael O’Keefe, Gallo’s attorney, said after court that Gallo didn’t post the information on social media. He sent the contract of a confidential informant to a someone in a private message. That contract had already been posted on Facebook by other people and didn’t originate from Gallo, O’Keefe said.

O’Keefe also said Gallo didn’t share the contract with the confidential informant in Gallo’s case. It was the same informant, but the contract was not specific to Gallo’s case, O’Keefe said.
