Gambian Man Caught in NYC With Gun and Pot Gets 366 Days After Year Plus at Home

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 3 – Ebrima Faal came to the United States in 2006 at the age of six, after being born in Serre Kunda in The Gambia. In September 2020 he was arrested with a loaded handgun in his backpack along with marijuana. He has been under home confinement since.

   On June 3, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Victor Marrero held Faal's sentencing. Inner City Press went and covered it. 

  Judge Marrero asked why it had taken nearly two years to get the case to this point. Counsel blamed COVID, and the need to check with an immigration lawyer.

Faal spoke for himself, pointing out his girlfriend in the courtroom gallery and remarking that "there is too much going on in The Bronx." He asked for a non-custodial sentence.

  Judge Marrero said the guideline was 18 to 24 months and that the recommendation was 366 days, to allow for so-called "good time."

 He adopted that recommendation and set August 3 as the date for self-surrender.

The case is US v. Faal, 20-cr-641 (Marrero)
