Chinatown Gang Leader Who Killed 2 in Flushing Gets 330 Months Then Deportation

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 8–    Xing Lin, a gang boss in NYC's Chinatown, shot and killed two people in a Flushing karake bar in 2004. 

 On June 8, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein held an in-person re-sentencing. Inner City Press went and covered it.  

 After arguments from the defense about Lin's record in prison, and by the prosecution on the seriousness of the crime, Judge Stein asked Lin why he did it. After conferring with counsel, Lin declined to answer. 

  Judge Stein remarked that Lin had had time to think about it.

He sentenced Lin to 330 months or 27 and a half years, after which Judge Stein said he will be deported. He did, however, reduce the fine - and Lin will get $100 back since the number of counts dropped from three to four.

The case is US v. Lin, 11-cr-114 (Stein)
