After Guerrero Pled to Gun Running from Red Hook to Santo Domingo Now Arias Faces Trial

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 20 – Elvis Guerrero and others were indicted on charges of gun trafficking from Maine to the Dominican Republic. 

  On June 12, 2023, U.S. District Court of for the Southern District Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang took Guerrero's guilty plea. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court. 

 The plea deal is for a 78 to 96 month sentencing guideline. As described by the AUSA, the guns were to go through Red Hook - in Brooklyn, that is, the EDNY -- but through waters over which the SDNY says it has jurisdiction. 

  Guerrero's Federal Defender consented to venue; despite the AUSA's suggested questions, he did not name his co-conspirator(s).

 On December 5, the US Attorney's Office wrote in asking, for Guerrero, for 90 months, the top of the guidelines.

On December 12, Judge Castel sentenced Guerrero to 68 months, and recommended near Boston.

Jump cut to June 20, 2024, when co-defendant Henry Feliz Arias had his final pre-trial conference. Communications by Guerrero to Arias are sought to be excluded, as is a seeming death threat from Arias to "Employee-1," after Arias' mother was arrested in the Dominican Republic. Judge Castel said he will reserve judgment until trial, which begins July 8. Watch this site.

 The case is US v. Guerrero, et al., 22-cr-629 (Castel / Wang)
