Man Who Threw Rock After Psychiatrist Said No Sentenced to 8 Months then No Supervision

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12 – Gerald Williams was up for sentencing on a violation of supervised release on May 11, 2023. 

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman was presiding in large courtroom 318 in 40 Foley Square. Inner City Press was there and covered it.

  Williams was brought in by US Marshals. The prosecutor said Probation did not favor any further supervision, just a period of incarceration, up to eight months.

  Williams spoke haltingly for himself, how he had been turned away from a psychiatrist and apparently threw a rock, how he wanted to go home that day, right now.  

 His lawyer said mental health is his problems and it is a shame that the system cannot do more for him.

  That appears to be the case: he got eight months in jail. He looked around the large courtroom as he was led out, at the lawyers gathering for the next case, some defense counsel laughing with the prosecutors. 

  And then he was gone. 

 The case is US v. Williams, 13-cr-580 (Furman)
