Man Charged In Armed Robbery of Pot Dealer Starts Car Wash for Kids, Gets Time Served

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 23 – Dimitrius Simmons was charged with armed robbery of a marijuana dealer near 3120 Heath Avenue in The Bronx. He was released on bailed after a week then pleaded guilty.     

       On June 22, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield, about to start the jury trial of Stephen Calk for allegedly using a bank to try to buy the position of Secretary of the Army, held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.  

  Simmons spoke for himself, explaining how he started a car wash then car detailing business in Harlem, employing young people for $10 a car, to avoid problems he had when young. 

  Judge Schofield remarked that as a judge she is given hammers but not much less. She asking about halfway houses.

Ultimately, she imposed a time served sentencing, noting that with this break, any violation of supervised release would not be lightly viewed.

The case is US v. Simmons, 19-cr-58 (Schofield)
