In SDNY Jamel Jones Gets 135 Months From Judge Engelmayer In Run-Up To 6ix9ine's Sentencing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Previous Thread
The Source - XXL - The Root - Vibe, etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 16 – Jamel Jones was arrested and charged with selling two kilograms of heroin in November 2018, when he was also captured on a wiretap saying that rapper Daniel Hernandez a/k/a Tekashi 6ix9ine should be "super violated."

    Jamel Jones' statement, quoted several times at his sentencing on October 17, 2019 was that Hernandez had given an interview on TMZ disassociating himself with, and dissing, the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods.

     U.S. District Court Judge Paul A. Engelmayer who on October 10 sentenced Roland Martin to 66 months -- down from the 90 months he said he intended to imposed but for Martin having renounced membership in the gang and getting stabbed for it -- asked Jamel Jones' lawyer if he wanted to explain the "super violated" statement.

     Jamel Jones saying that Hernandez should be "super violated" had not been included in the (sealed) pre-sentencing report. But the October 17 sentencing went forward, with Engelmayer ultimately imposing a full 135 months on Jamel Jones.

    Reference was made to Jamel Jones not having renounced the gang, as such (he only said he was finished with street life); his age of 39 and a half was cited as making blaming his action on the lack of a father figure less credible.

    While there is more to be said, including but not limited to how this may impact on or predict what Judge Engelmayer will do when he sentences Daniel Hernandez / 6ix9ine, Inner City Press would urge that these proceedings be have a live-feed in the same way as the underlying trial, so that the public can better understand the court and the decisions made. This case is US v. Jones, 18-cr-00834 (Engelmayer).
