SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 17 –   Charles Kenyatta was indicted for narcotics and loansharking conspiracy in July 2019, a sealed indictment and arrest warrant signed by then-Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. 

  The discovery materials in his case, it emerged, included Title III wiretaps that had been authorized by District Judge William H. Pauley III on November 30, 2017. They had been ordered sealed on December 18, 2017 by then-District Judge Richard J. Sullivan.  

On January 17 Kenyatta re-appeared in the Magistrates Court, this time to plead guilty to a single county, "extortionate extension of credit."

He said it happened in 2019, then modified it to include 2017 and 2018 after questioning by Assistant US Attorney Aline Flodr and then Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker.

   For this loansharking he received a plea agreement from the US Attorney's Office with a sentencing guideline of 37 to 46 months imprisonment, and a fine range of $10,000 to $95,000. He will be sentenced by Chief Judge Coleen McMahon, along no date has yet been set. The case is US v. Kenyatta, 19-cr-496 (McMahon / Parker).
