Man With 10 Years of Supervision Gets It Cut in Half, Drug Treatment No Longer Needed

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 11 – Shawn Young on drug charges was sentenced in 2009 to 16 years in prison and ten years of supervised release, with drug treatment and therapy required. 

 On August 11, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Back in late 2019 under the First Step Act, Young was re-sentenced to time served.

Then in May 2021 the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the District Court erred in failing to explain its decision not to reduce his supervised release. 

 On August 11, the supervised release was cut to five years, and after an inspiring talk (and track-record) by Young, the conditions of drug treatment and therapy were removed, as no longer needed. There is another proceeding on January 25, 2022.

The case is US v. Young, 06-cr-495 (Berman)
