After Escape Bid From Bronx Halfway House and Window Judge Engelmayer Gives 7 Months

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 –  Pedro Aquino was finishing up a sentence for Hobbs Act Robbery when he absconded from the Bronx Residential Re-Entry Center.

On June 19 he was up for sentencing before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The US said, and Judge Engelmayer gave weigh to, that Aquino when cornered "ripped an air conditioner unit out of a window and attempted to flee by means of the fire escape."

Judge Engelmayer said that others who might try to flee near the end of these sentences need to be deterred. He imposed a sentence of seven months.

 (During technical difficulties, Judge Engelmayer said he has not been to his courtroom, but has been told that the jury room now has plexiglass. He has been to his Chambers. Inner City Press has in the past covered, and will in the future cover, that courtroom, and court transparency generally).

This case is US v. Aquino, 19-cr-908 (Engelmayer).
