Although Sopranos actor Lillo Brancato wasn’t convicted of second-degree murder of an off-duty police officer, it seems he’ll still be spending a big chunk of time in jail. The star of A Bronx Tale was found guilty for his role in the burglary attempt that cost the officer his life, and has been sentenced to 10 years in prison, according to E! News.


In 2005, Lillo and an accomplice broke into a home to steal painkillers. After a neighbor, NYPD Officer Daniel Enchautegui came by to investigate and shot at the robbers, the other man, Steven Armento, shot and killed the cop.

Armento was found guilty and convicted of first-degree murder in the slaying and was sentenced to life in prison.
