Cooperator Rubeo Gets 6 Months In His Home For Implying Railroading on Podcast

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 19 – John Rubeo plead guilty in 2012 to racketeering, gambling, drug trafficking and robbery.

 He was a cooperator and has been out on supervised release - until without permission he went on a podcast, resulting in an article implying another defendant had been railroaded. 

   On January 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Second Circuit Judge Richard J. Sullivan held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 Judge Sullivan told Rubeo that his unauthorized podcast had cast the court and even the law in a bad light. 

 Rubeo blamed the tabloid reporter for characterizing it that way. He emphasized he has mostly complied for 29 and a half months.

 Judge Sullivan said but for COVID, he would remand him. As it was, he assigned two more yesterday of supervised release, the first six months in home confinement.

The case is US v. Rubeo, 12-cr-260 (Sullivan)
