Man Who Pled As Felon in Possession Gets 46 Months After Letter, Music Industry Cited

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 25 – Trevor McKoy was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, to wit, a 9mm Luger pistol dropped in a bush on Fish Avenue in The Bronx.          

   On August 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Federal Defenders contested whether a previous conviction was as a youthful offender, and asked for 37 months. The US Attorney's Office asked for the range they had agreed to: 37 to 46 months.

  Judge Furman praised the defendant's letter to him, and said he hoped he would have a bright future, mentioning the music industry.

He imposed a sentence of 46 months, to be followed by three years of supervised release.

The case is US v. McKoy, 20-cr-229 (Furman)
