In SDNY For Money Laundering Conspiracy McGill Gets No Jail But 90 Days Halfway House and 6 Months Home Confinement

By Matthew Russell Lee, Periscope, Photos

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 13 – When Shoshana Marie McGill came to be sentenced on June 13 after pleading guilty to money laundering conspiracy, her lawyer like Probation argued for no jail time. Assistant US Attorney Sarah Lai urged a sentence within the Guidelines: 37 to 46 months in prison.

    U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Victor Marrero rejected McGill's and her lawyer's argument that she played only a minor role in the conspiracy, which involved buying people's identities and stealing their money.

  But he gave weight to the face that McGill's co-conspirator was the father of her three children, Jason Mickel Elcock, who he said is likely to be deported after serving jail time.

  There were two dozen family members and supporters in the gallery. AUSA Lai tried to argue that this showed that they could take care of McGill's three children while she did jail time. McGill's lawyer called this disingenuous, saying We don't know who these people are, they have jobs, they have their own kids.

 Judge Marrero after some lead-up said, Five years probation. There were signs of relief in the gallery. Then he added, 90 days in a re-entry center (half way house), to be served on weekends. Some of the relief seemed to disappear.

Then Judge Marrero added, Six month home confinement. No one, it seemed, was happy. The case is USA v. Elcock, et al., 18-cr-726 (Marrero).
