Javier Lavayen Charged in 2015 Got Lifetime Supervision Now 18 Months After Robbery

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 4 – For a criminal case filed in 2014, on April 12, 2019 Javier Lavayen was sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard J. Sullivan.  

On August 14, Judge Sullivan now on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals held a violation of supervised release proceeding with Lavayen who appeared first by Skype for Business on his phone, then by telephone audio only. Inner City Press covered it and live tweeted some of it, below.

 Now on January 4, Lavayen had his sentencing before Judge Sullivan. Federal Defender Cohen argued that his client had been trying hard, before the robbery. Lavayen spoke and said there are no programs in the Essex County facility, that he wants to move to Florida and start over.

 Judge Sullivan said he had woken up thinking it would sentence Lavayen to two years, but that after these arguments he would go with 18 months, and again the lifetime of supervised release. He said he wished Lavayen well.

From August 14: Judge Sullivan told Lavayen, Take the cigarette out of your mouth.  Lavayen: I can hear you a little bit.  Judge Sullivan: I can see you are outside. The specifications include you using heroin. Do you understand?

 Lavayen: Can I say something?

 Federal Defender Martin Cohen: Can he just call in by phone, no video?

Judge Sullivan said, Fine with me.

Lavayen came back on, no video.

 Judge Sullivan told him to report here to 500 Pearl Street Monday at 9 am.

Afterward FD Cohen wrote to ask that he be allowed to leave home detention over the weekend, to spend time with family members who plan on getting together in the park for a few hours to wish him good luck.

The case is US v. Lavayen, 14-cr-774 (Sullivan)
