Jackson Pulled a Baretta In A Crowd From MCC Wants Reduced Sentence But No Medical Records

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 11 –    Harvey Jackson, "present by camera from the MCC," was to be sentenced on June 11 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ronnie Abrams. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Abrams began, "pursuant to the CARES Act. I myself am in the District."  

 Jackson had pleaded guilty to a concealed .25 Baretta, and was and is seeking a time served sentence for his guilty plea of being a Felon in Possession (of a firearm).

He is seeking a downward departure, saying that CHC "over-represents the seriousness of the defendant's criminal history." 

Abrams ruled there should be a downward departure, but not as much as is being requested. She'll drop him from Criminal History Category 4 to 2. Jackson faced guideline of 27 to 34 months. 

   The AUSA says he covered a gun in a public place.  

 Judge Abrams asked, Do you have information what he was doing with the gun? 

  The AUSA replied, I do not. He seems to be saying it was for his protection. But this is a cycle. 

 Jackson's lawyer cited COVID-19 in the MCC.   

 Judge Abrams noted, I didn't see any medical records... I'd like to adjourn in order to get that information. Write me a letter when you can provide the documentation and we can get back on the calendar for the CourtCall.

The case is US v. Jackson, 19-cr-492 (Abrams).
