Feliz Lost Dishwashing Job So Sold Heroin Now After 11 Months in MDC Gets Time Served

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 26 –  Edinson Amin Beltre Feliz was working as a dish washer in New York City until COVID hit.

He lost his job, and to send money to his family in the Dominican Republic he arranged to sell 600 grams of heroin for $22,500. It was found to contain fentanyl. He was arrested and pled guilty.

 On April 26, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Analisa Torres held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it, as the only person in the gallery of Judge Torres' courtroom. 

  Beltre Feliz cried when he spoke, about his 92 year old grandmother in the Dominican Republic. His lawyer said during his 11 months in the MDC in Brooklyn he redirected money from his commissary to the Dominican Republic.

Judge Torres, on a guideline of 51 to 71 months and through the Safety Value sentenced him to time served - to be followed, now, by deportation.

The case is US v. Beltre Feliz, 21-cr-731 (Torres)
