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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 8 – Yefrel Brito was charged with conspiracy to commit murgder in aid of racketeering.    

      On June 8, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Brito said that, as part of a gang, he traveled to Soundview and was present when a rival gang member was shot and killed.

The AUSA said the victim's name: Nelson Ramos, on January 6, 2019. 

 During the change of plea proceeding, Brito was asked, Do you want the vaccine?

Judge Furman urged him to get it, noting that it had seemed that he said yes. (At the time, Judge Furman said, Get it, just not right now).

Sentencing was set for October 5 at 3:30 pm.

The case is US v. Brito, 19-cr-625 (Furman)
