Turbi Was In DR Army 30 Years Then Heroin Sale in US So 32 Months Then Deportation

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 30 – Hector Valdez Turbi served thirty years in the Dominican Republic army.

Then he came to the United States and sold a kilo of heroin.

 On July 30 he was up for sentencing before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge William H. Pauley III. Inner City Press covered it.

   Judge Pauley called it "in my years on the bench, a rather unique situation."

The guidelines provided for 57 to 71 months. Judge Pauley sentenced him to 32 months, to be served near Boston where his wife lives - then deportation to the Dominican Republic.

The case is US v. Turbi, 19-cr-403 (Pauley)
