Guilty Plea to Heroin Sales Has Ventriloquist Allocution Adopted and June 23 Sentencing

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 17 – Francis Javier Pimentel-Tavares was charged with conspiracy to distribute one kilogram of heroin, in mid 2019.

Then the case repeatedly got adjourned.   On February 17, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge George B. Daniels held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  When it came time for the allocution, the defense lawyer asked if he could read it out for his client, then Judge Daniels ask if the defendant agreed.

  Judge Daniels said OK, he'd ask of the statement was adopted by the defendant. That's the word, the lawyer said. And it happened.

The sentencing is set for June 23, when Judge Daniels said he may have a trial. If so, he'll break for lunch - the sentencing is at 1 pm.

The case is US v. Pimentel-Tavares, 19-cr-425 (Daniels)
