Man Who Sold Scam Ads From Santo Domingo Was Abused In Jail There So Gets Time Served

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 2 –  Louis Bravo was in the Dominican Republic, sending emails and faxes to steal money for false ads in publications that never existed.

Then he got arrested and spent ten harrowing days in Dominican jails, awaiting extradition to the US.     

 On June 2, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a plea and sentencing proceeding, in-person with no audio feed by phone. Inner City Press went and covered it.   

  The US Attorney's Office, noting the conditions in Dominican prisons, recommended a sentence below the 15 to 21 month guidelines it had agreed to in the plea agreement. Much of the requests are redacted.   

Judge Woods gave Bravo a time served sentence, to be followed by three years of supervised release.

The case is US v. Bravo, 18-cr-283 (Woods)
