In SDNY Lin Li Robbert Sentence Cut To Time Served By Judge Chin 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 sentencing in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by now Circuit Judge Chin.

 It occurred in Courtroom 506 in 40 Foley Square 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.

  The underlying crimes involved Hobbs Act robberies at 40 East Broadway and of a gambling parlor at 85 Allen Street, both near the SDNY courthouse.

  In the latter case, according to Assistant US Attorney David R. Felton's recent re-sentencing submission, "Li and two other males ordered a victim, who was attempting to leave a gambling parlor behind a barber shop at 85 Allen Street, back into the gambling parlor...  The victims complied, placing approximately $4,000 in cash and $6,000 in jewelry on the tables. Li, the two other males, and a fourth participant (who had entered the gambling parlor near the end of the robbery also displaying a gun), collected the valuables and instructed the victims not to call the police or they would be killed."

    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.
