Postal Worker Helped Ship China Cannabinoids Now Gets 1 Year Probation in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 9 – Josephine McLaughlin came to the US from Italy with her parents in 1953. She majored in music education, and later got a job with the US Postal Service.

  Then she began to help Daniel Borer import synthetic cannabinoids from China; he repackaged them as "Psycho" and "Dead Man Walking."  

On June 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald held a sentencing proceeding. She asked, Who is on the line? "Inner City Press, not a participant." 

  There followed a notably short proceeding. McLaughlin's was a supporting role, and not compensated. Still, she allowed her name to be used as well. Her medical conditions, redacted in her sentencing submission, were said to put her at risk to COVID-19. 

 Judge Buchwald sentenced McLaughlin to one year probation.

The case is US v. McLaughlin, 18-cr-444 (Buchwald).
