As Man Who Violated Supervised Release Get Concurrent Sentence AUSA Says He's Angry

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 27 –  Lavon Barrett, previously convicted in a 2009 case, was arrested and sentenced again then faced another sentencing, on the Violation of Supervised Release. 

  On May 27, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held Barrett's VOSR sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.   

 Judge Berman said earlier in the proceeding that he intended to make his sentence run concurrent with the Eastern District sentence Barrett is serving.

 He said that everyone on the call was disappointed in what Barrett did. 

 Long-time Assistant US Attorney Michael Maimim said that with all due respect he disagreed with everything, that he is not disappointed but rather angry at Barrett, for returning to gang business, no longer with drugs addiction or youth as excuses. 

 Judge Berman slightly modified his sentence, to 30 month concurrent with the EDNY sentence, and five years supervision - with therapy - one year longer than the EDNY's four year period of supervised release.

The case is US v. Barrett, 09-cr-765 (Berman)
