Valle Given 151 Months For Robberies as Cop Gets Compassionate Release in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 22 – Jancey Valle was sentenced to 151 months in prison by then U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine B. Forest on February 28, 2014, for crimes involving impersonating police for drug trafficking violence.

Then 2017 sentencing memo by AUSA Rachel Maimin quoted, "I got the stun guns, I got like six of them." 

 On July 22 SDNY Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein, to whom Valle's many appeals and entreaties have been assigned, held a compassionate release hearing. Inner City Press covered it.  

 From the beginning, Judge Hellerstein's questions concerned where Valle would stay, and how he gets along with his father. He said he sentences more generously than his predecessor.

And by the end, he granted compassionate release, with a one year term of home incarceration allowing exit to work.

 The case is US v. Valle, 13-cr-58 (Hellerstein)
