For Bronx Heroin Dealing Gonzalez Jailed Since 2014 Gets 18 More Months From Judge Engelmayer

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 18 –  Jaime Gonzalez was up for sentencing as part of a Bronx drug conspiracy centered around Decatur Avenue and 194th Street on May 18 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer.

   Gonzalez' lawyer Marlon Kirton said his client was involved in dealing heroin mostly to support his habit, which began at age 18. He said if Gonzalez got released today, he could go to Bellevue for a program.

    Judge Engelmayer previewed that he intended to keep Jaime Gonzalez in jail, but 49 months lower than would have been and another year off too for the time he's been in custody. 

   Gonzalez spoke for himself. "My years of drug addiction have caused me to do things I am truly ashamed of. Your Honor, I have been incarcerated since 2014. I am ready to start this new and final chapter of my life." 

   Judge Engelmayer, as he often does in sentencings such as that of Daniel Hernandez / Tekashi #6ix9ine, also covered by Inner City Press, said Give me a moment.  

  After a break he imposed a 30 month sentence, minus the 12 months just served. He referred to the difficulty of serving time amid the COVID-19 pandemic and asked for any request for which prison.

    "As close to NYC as possible," was the answer, to allow visits by Gonzalez' son. Gonzalez has been in jail since 2014, with 18 months to go. The case is US v. Gonzalez, 16-cr-826 (Engelmayer).
