Cooperator Who Brought Drugs Into GEO Private Prison Gets 6 Extra Months in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 31 – A defendant charged in a murder conspiracy who then brought drugs into the cooperators' GEO prison was given time served plus six months on July 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Inner City Press covered it.  

Defendant Garcia's childhood was unlucky to say the least: both parents in jail and addicted to drugs.

At the sentencing Garcia spoke movingly about how his mother, once she got out, tried to get him out of the streets, even turning him in for two guns. She sent him money in GEO, but thought it was for gambling, not drugs.  

SDNY Judge Katherine Polk Failla, listened to it all and said she would have given more than than time served, for the cooperation, but for the conduct in GEO.

For that, six months. The case is US v. Garcia, 15-cr-605 (Failla).
