Dashawn Smith Sold Crack By A Bronx School But Also Had Sunday Funday Gets 60 Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 13 -- Dashawn Smith was charged with and pled guilty to selling crack near a public school in The Bronx. On March 13, 2020 he appeared for sentencing along with ten family members and supporters before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods.

He faced a guideline of 70 to 87 months. 

 Yet his Federal Defenders lawyer Jennifer E. Willis in her sentencing submission described her client as having eschewed crime since 2012, until something drew him back in. That is redacted.  

But Willis described Dashawn Smith with Aracely Watkins designating one day as week as "Sunday Funday" when he would do special activities with the girls - a movie, an amusement park, a restaurant. Perhaps this is why he has supporters in the courtroom. And Judge Woods sentenced him to the minimum, 6 months. The case is US v. Smith, 19-cr-11 (Woods).
