In SDNY Lin Li Sentence Cut To Time Served By Judge Chin After Davis But China Awaits

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, Patreon
Honduras - The Source - The Root - etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 4 –  Lin Li was sentenced to 228 months in prison by then-District Judge Denny Chin in 2006 for three armed robberies.   On November 4, 2019 -- thirteen years later -- his case was listed for re-sentencing at 2 pm in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by now Circuit Judge Chin. But no courtroom was listed.

   Inner City Press, which covers the SDNY and Second Circuit including also cross-over Judge Richard J. Sullivan, inquired: where would the sentencing be?

   It was told: Courtroom 506 in 40 Foley Square. But at 2 pm, two stories above where Inner City Press was covering the OneCoin crypto-currency scheme trial, the doors to 506 was locked.    It inquired again, and gratefully was told it was re-scheduled to 4 pm.

 There, in a large courtroom with seven people in the gallery, rare mercy was shown. In light of the US Supreme Court's decision in US v. Davis, 139 S. Ct. 2319 (2019), Li was being re-sentenced.

    He was given time served plus fourteen days. That's to allow for arrangments - Li is set to be deported to China. Still he thanked Judge Chin, who has stayed on this case for more than decade, to his credit. The cases are US v. Lin Li, 02-cr-271 and 03-cr-567.
