Curry For Unloaded Gun In Shoe Box Has Been in Jail For 20 Months, Is Sentenced to 31 More

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 14 – Chealique Curry pleaded guilty to having a gun in a shoebox. The gun was unloaded, but Mr. Curry was and is a felon.   

     On June 14, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

  Curry's sentencing submission noted that he was "neglected by a mother who struggled with drug addiction and separated from an incarcerated father."

His lawyer said the firearm was not on Mr. Curry's person but stowed away elsewhere in the apartment. 

  Since September 17, 2019 Curry was been in the MCC, most of it in lockdown.

His lawyer asked for time served.

  Judge Hellerstein, taking the time to explain his sentenced, said Curry will spend 51 months in prison. Curry asked that it be in "Cadre" in the MCC, a rare request.

The case is US v. Curry, 19-cr-742 (Hellerstein)
