As Man Who Fired 11 Shots At Bronx Nightclub Gets 87 Months Screaming in the Courtroom

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 28 – Jonathan Laureano fired 11 shots at a crowd outside a Bronx nightclub on September 10, 2022. He was up for sentencing on August 28, 2023 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni. Inner City Press is covering the case, and went to the sentencing, which ended in screaming from the gallery and in the hall.

   The SDNY prosecutors wanted the top of the guideline for felon in possession of ammunition: 87 months.

  The defense wanted 48 months, citing Laureano's history. They say his mother Milagros Carrero was drug addicted and died when he was 16.  "His father re-established contact, and moved into the family's apartment," then moved out, abandoning Jonathan and his brother, Carlos. "Carlos has not survived this trauma any better than Jonathan; he is currently incarcerated in New Jersey." 

 While that is sourced to the Pre-Sentencing Report, the defense objects to the PSR: "his unmentioned sister, Mayling Carrero, is 30 and lives in Connecticut. Also, one sister is named Taisha Laureano, not Tisha, and is 38, not 41; and his brother, John Cruz, is 41 or 42, not 40." The PSR is, of course, sealed.

 On August 28, Inner City Press went to the sentencing. In the gallery were relatives, including the mother of Laureano's son. Judge Caproni pointed out that the shooting happened soon after his son's birth, and sentenced him to 87 months. His son's mother shouted and ran out into the hall. Court Security Officers were called; a person on the elevator said, This is exciting.

The case is  US v. Laureano, 22-cr-670 (Caproni)
