Tyre Davis Who Pled To Robbing Delivery Man Gets 2 Extra Years From Judge Sullivan at SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC The Times (UK) Honduras - The Source 

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 25 – Tyre Davis was on supervised release when, according to his guilty plea in state court, he stole a motor vehicle from Zhou Hang Li. On November 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Davis was up for sentencing by Judge Richard J. Sullivan.

    The detainee's lawyer Allan Paul Haber said wanly, He's not a bad kid, he just gets into trouble.

    Judge Sullivan addressed Davis directly, that he needs to get his life together. Davis spoke up, asking why if he had a job at Tiffany's he would have robbed a delivery man working only for tips?    A woman in the courtroom gallery, where only she and Inner City Press were, spoke up and said she had told Davis to plead guilty.

   Judge Sullivan told Davis, but you admitted this under oath. In the May 8, 2019 transcript from NYC Supreme Court in Queens County, Justice Charles Lopresto asked, Do you understand that a plea of guilty is the same as a conviction after trial?

Davis replied, Yes.

Judge Sullivan, now also of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, sentenced Davis to two years of Federal time, to run consecutive to -- after -- his seven year state sentence. It was a proceeding as much about morality as about the law. The case is US v. Davis, 14-cr-212 (Sullivan).
