Man Being Sentenced For FARC Drug Dealing in Colombia Speaks of Jesus and Gets 10 Years

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 20 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on January 20, a sentencing was held by District Judge Valerie E. Caproni on a man involved in a cocaine deals with the FARC in Colombia.

  The defendant Armando Gomez was asked to speak for himself, just prior to sentence being imposed. He spoke at length, about a book he says he is writing entitled, I Love My Friend Jesus.

He added that he did not mean FARC military commander Jesus Santrich.

  There were not other journalists in the courtroom but there was another lawyer, apparently for a co-defendant in the case, taking notes.
  Judge Caproni imposed a sentence of 120 months, to be followed by deportation - with Supervised Release imposed in case deportation did not happen.

  The defense lawyer asked for designation in Colorado or near Atlanta. Judge Caproni said she would recommend it.

The case is US v. Gomez, 18-cr-262 (Caproni)
