Tilton man prepared to admit he was selling heroin

LACONIA — A Tilton man has tentatively agreed to serve 2 1/2 to six years in the New Hampshire State Prison for selling heroin to a confidential informant working with the Tilton Police.

Paperwork obtained from the Belknap County Superior Court said Travis Dalessio, 27, formerly of West Street entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors Thursday during a pre-trial hearing.

He also agreed to serve a 2-to-4 year prison sentence that would be served concurrently — or at the same time — for a second count of selling heroin to an informant.

Two separate fines of $1,000 each were suspended pending his good behavior and he will be on probation for five years following his release from prison.

The two sales allegedly occurred o separate dates in October of 2012.

Dalessio also agreed to a 3 1/2 to 7 year suspended sentence for conspiring with Nicole Economides to sell heroin on or about November 11, 2012 by negotiating the deal and driving her to to the site where a heroin sale was made.

Economides pleaded guilty in June of 2013. Just recently she was indicted for allegedly hiding drugs on her person after she pleaded guilty in Belknap County Superior Court for sales of heroin and was taken to the Belknap County House of Corrections.

The two were arrested by Tilton Police in December of 2012 and Dalessio has been incarcerated since then, unable to post $50,000 cash-only bail.

As part of his tentative agreement, he also agreed to complete a drug and alcohol evaluation.

Dalessio is scheduled to make a formal plea on October 30.
