Uzkek Kudaybergenov Told Business He Has No Tolerance For Gays Now 2 More Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 2 – Allambergen Kudaybergenov got hired for a job requiring legal US residence then it didn't work out.

He was charged with identity theft, and making threats over wires.

 On August 3 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Kudaybergenov had emailed the "Victim Business" that he has "zero tolerance for gay people."

Ultimately he was offered a plea deal with a ten months guideline, after which he would be deported. He took it.

  Judge Vyskocil was asked by Federal Defenders to set the sentencing in late September.

She called that unrealistic and picked October 28.

 In fact, the sentencing took place on November 2, and Inner City Press covered it.

 The Federal Defender asked for time served: eight months. The US Attorney's Office asked for a sentence in the guidelines, the low end of which was 10 months.

  The defendant, it was said, overstayed his student visa from Uzbekistan then, drinking after work, more than 40 times emailed threats including racist threats to "the business" and its restaurants. He declined to speak at sentencing.

 Judge Vyskocil chose the ten months, that is, two more months in, to be spent in the MCC. Then he will be deported to Uzbekistan.

The case is US v. Kudaybergenov, 20-cr-228 (Vyskocil)
