In SDNY Willy Sanchez Pleads to 500 Grams But Not 20 Kilos Found In Apartment

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – A warrant for the cellphone of Willy Sanchez was signed on February 5, 2019 by then-Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pittman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

 This led the DEA to a building at Wadsworth Avenue and West 178th Street in Upper Manhattan, where they installed a camera on the 27th floor pointing at "Apartment-1."

  Willy Sanchez appeared in SDNY Magistrates Court on January 3 to plead guilty. Inner City Press was the only media in the courtroom when, contrary to the usual script, Willy Sanchez spoke up.

    He wanted Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron to know that while he was pleading guilty to the lesser included offense of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams, he was not responsible for the 20 kilos found in the apartment.

   Judge Aaron inquired, including asking both lawyers if this undermined the plea deal. No, was the answer. The deal was all about the sentencing guideline of 135 to 168 months with a mandatory minimum of 60 months.

    The choice between the two will be up to SDNY Judge Kimba M. Wood, on April 6. The case is US v. Sanchez, 19-cr-360 (Wood).
