SDNY Defendant Who Fled To Santo Domingo Is Extradited Back and Gets 60 Months in Prison

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 10 – Ramos Daniel Felix Leonardo a/k/a Eddie was facing trial on drug charges when he fled to the Dominican Republic. 

  On August 10, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Failla said while it was certainly the defendant's right to go to trial, the fleeing was a problem, it put his family at risk.

The defendant said he hasn't seen his children in five years; his lawyer said he did not oppose extradition from the Dominican Republic.

   He wanted 32 months; the guidelines ran to 127 months. Judge Failla arrived at 60 months in prison.

The overall case is US v. Peguero Varela et al, 17-cr-636 (Failla)
