Charged with Overdose Death of Matrisciani US Wants 2 Years on Affredou Now Mother Writes

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan31 – Andrew Affredou was arrested in connection with the overdose of Christopher Matrisciani on July 2, 2019 in a hotel room in Manhattan. 

 On September 29, 2023, Affredou came without notice before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang to plead guilty to a lesser included offense, crack dealing. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court.

  Affredou, who had faced trial, got a plea deal for 8 to 14 months, no appeal if below 27 months. He took it. The sentencing is set for February 5, 2024 at 11 am.

On January 9, 2024 Christopher Mastrisciani's mother Sandra wrote to Judge Broderick about Affredou asking for the maximum sentence. She described her son, who began addicted while recovering from a crushed ankle, was assigned to a badly run halfway house in Bushwick and was attending Berkley College. She attached photographs.

On January 31, the US Attorney's Office wrote in, requesting... 24 months. The sentencing is set for February 5.

 The case is US v. Affredou, 22-cr-238 (Broderick / Wang)
