In SDNY Oliver Pled to 5 Kilos of Coke But Letter from Desert Storm Gets 60 Months

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 21 – Gilbert Oliver was charged with conspiracy to distribute five kilos and more of cocaine, and using a gun. On July 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.

 In the docket, Oliver had a letter of support from Shaun Gavin, now of Miramar, Florida, that "As a Federal Supervisory Special Agent, I have spent a significant portion of my career assigned to U.S. Embassies around the world" - and that he saw Olivier mentoring youth in Brooklyn.  

His brother Raymond Oliver, "Sergeant USMC Desert Storm," recounted that "our father passed away at 58 from a heart attack was a plumber for local union 14 for nearly 30 years in New Jersey... Please be merciful."  

Judge Stein imposed a sentence of 60 months to be followed by four years of supervised release, with a request to serve the time in Fairton FCI or Allenwood.

The case is US v. Oliver et al., 19-cr-568 (Stein)
