Lambrakis Sold Oxy and Got 188 Months Amid Talk of Greek Debt Crisis Now To Enter Jan 3

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 31 – Emmanuel Lambrakis pled guilty to having illegal prescribed oxycodone without a legitimate media purpose.

  Then amid the Covid-19 pandemic his Fatico hearing was postponed.

 In a August 26, 2021 sentencing proceeding covered by Inner City Press, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla asked, for example, about the claim that Lambrakis was working with a group trying to forestall the Greek debt crisis.

Lambrakis said he was having problems with his memory. He is 72 years old.

  The US Attorney's Office had asked for 240 months incarceration. After taking a break to deliberate, Judge Failla returned and imposed a sentence of 188 months, to be followed (if applicable) by three years of supervised release.

  The AUSA said she had come prepared to ask for immediate remand. But she didn't ask for that and it seems it will be after Thanksgiving, to a BOP medical facility like Devens.

In late December the time to surrender was (slightly) extended: "MEMO ENDORSEMENT as to Emmanuel Lambrakis (1) granting [148] LETTER MOTION addressed to Judge Katherine Polk Failla from Peter E. Brill dated December 23, 2021 re: Further Request to Delay Surrender. ENDORSEMENT: Application GRANTED. Mr. Lambrakis's surrender date shall be extended by one week, until January 3, 2022."

The case is US v. Lambrakis, 17-cr-208 (Failla).
