In SDNY Defendant Is Ordered To Avoid Bloods Neighborhoods and Associates on Social Media

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon, Thread III
The Source - XXL - The Root - etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 30 – Derrick Richardson pled guilty in connection with crack cocaine sales in and around the Thomas Jefferson Housing Project in East Harlem, apparently by the Bloods. Many of the specifics are not clear from Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Clore's sentencing submission.   

  But on September 30 Clore argued in support of a post-release condition on Richardson to not associate with or community on social media with known associates of the Blood or frequent any neighborhood he knows to be controlled by the Bloods. The case is US v. Richardson, 18-cr-00420 (Carter).   

  Earlier this month in Clore's office's prosecution of alleged Nine Trey Bloods members Anthony Ellison and Aljermian Mack, government cooperating witness Daniel Hernandez a/k/a Tekashi 6ix9ine identified as Bloods associated not only "retired" rapper Jim Jones but the very active Cardi B.  That case is US v. Jones, 18-cr- 00834 (Engelmayer).  

 Would the condition urged by the Probation Department and adopted in part on September 30 by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter make tweeting at Cardi B a Violation of Supervised Release? It would seem so - or, the special conditions don't mean what they say.

    Likewise, how large a swath of New York City does Probation, the US Attorney and Judge Carter consider to be "controlled" by the Bloods? Is the government going to provided financial support to Richardson to find housing outside of these areas when he is released?

    Richardson faced a mandatory minimum of sixty months, and got it. This will be followed by four years of supervised release, with the condition specified above. Will the areas in New York City controlled by the Bloods be smaller or larger by then? More on Patreon, here.
