Man Who Pushed Past Court Security And Remained on Lam Gets 15 Months in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 9 – Jonathan Read was out on supervised release when, coming to a life skills class in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York courthouse at 500 Pearl Street on August 15, 2017 while carrying marijuana, he ran through the security area and pushed his way out.

He remained at large for two days. He was sentenced to 18 months. 

 After that, he again violated supervised release, and went on the lam for months. On January 8, Judge Richard J. Sullivan held a sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Read's Federal Defender said he had panicked; Judge Sullivan said that would not explain the full eight months.

Read spoke for himself, and movingly, asking for another chance and describing getting out of his cell only three times a week. 

 Judge Sullivan said he could go up to 18 months, or the year and a day Probation suggested. Instead he imposed 15 months, and no supervised release after that. He wished Read well.

The case is US v. Read, 14-cr-775 (Sullivan)
