Troy Allert Up For VOSR Sentencing Says Amazon Staten Island Did Layoffs In Pandemic

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 3 – Troy Allert was up for sentencing for Violations of Supervised Release and his lawyer noted that he was laid off by Amazon due to social distancing.    

        On October 1 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul G. Gardephe held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Allert's lawyer's presentation included that he had "obtained employment in October 2019 at an Amazon warehouse in Staten Island, making sure that purchased items were packed to the shipped to the purchaser. However, due to social distancing restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr. Allert was laid off in July 2020." 

  Judge Gardephe listened, and told Allert he'd give him this second change. He sentenced him to time service, but restarted two more years of supervised release.

The case is US v. Allert, 18-cr-364 (Gardephe)
