By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 23 – Edwin Cruz was charged in a drug conspiracy, with transporting 2.1 kilograms of heroin. He is quoted, "I knew this was a drop." 

  On May 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Victor Marrero held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  The guideline sentence was 87 to 108 months. The defendant's lawyer spoke about lead poisoning, addiction, and the relatively limited role of transporting drugs. 

 Judge Marrero imposed a sentence of 81 months, to be followed by three years of supervised release.

The case is US v. Kitchens, 20-cr-452 (Marrero)
