Pena For Planning To Rob Fictitious Drug Dealer Gets 40 Months in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 28 –   Robert Pena was charged with, and pled guilty to, conspiring to rob a drug dealer who was in fact fictitious.  

On July 28 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos held a sentencing for Pena. Inner City Press covered it.   

The AUSA's sentencing letter recites that "[o]n or about November 5, 2020, Pena pleaded guilty to Count One" - meaning, it seems, 2019. The US Attorney's Office asked for a sentence within the 57 to 71 month guideline.

  Pena's lawyer argued that he has almost withdrawn from the conspiracy. Almost.

Judge Ramos noted that he had already sentenced Pena's co-defendant to 40 months and proceeded to do the same with Pena.

The case is US v. Pena, 18-cr-844 (Ramos)
