Man Who Kneecapped Another Who Later Died Got 2d Chance To Plead Now 105 Months

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 28 – William Jiminez on October 13, 2021 pleaded guilty to have a gun in connection with a drug trafficking crime, after shooting a man in the knee cap on January 22, 2020.  

  Then the US Attorney's Office belatedly learned the victim had died - of a drug overdose - and so let Jiminez withdraw the plea and enter one to a lesser crime, felon in possession of ammunition.     

            On April 28, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Denise L. Cote held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 In the first plea, the Sentencing Guidelines range could have been as high as 262 to 327 months. Now, the US Attorney's Office was asking for 84 to 105.

The Federal Defender, who spoke movingly about GED, and the defendant who spoke about a smoothie job, asked for 48 months. 

 Judge Cote said a smoothie shop would be wondering, but that the crime was serious. She imposed a 105 month sentence.

The case is US v. Jiminez, 20-cr-122 (Cote)
