Bronx Man To Collect $100 Crack Debt Lit Victim On Fire Gets 10 Year Deal From SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 9 – When Anthony Neville came up for sentencing on January 9, his CJA lawyer had written, "On or about August 1, 2018, Mr. Neville committed a robbery of another individual by use of fire."  

But there was more to it that that.

   To collect on a $100 crack debt, Neville pushed into an apartment on 148th Street in The Bronx, tied the victim / debtor up and cut both of their shoulders with a box cutter. Then after using broken glass he sent them on fire.

  The US Attorney's office offered a plea deal to ten years imprisonment.    US District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Deborah A. Batts, calling the crime horrific, imposed the ten years. They will apparently be served in Florida. The case is US v. Neville, 18-cr-839 (Batts).
