Waggoner Sentencing for Night Club Gun Delayed As Pushing of Old Man Weighed

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 1 – Rodney Waggoner served two years for pushing 71-year old man onto the sidewalk outside a liquor store.

Then, as a felon, he was caught with a gun in a nightclub on June 2, 2022.

The prosecutors want him sentenced to 30 to 37 months in prison. 

 Waggoner's Federal Defender proposes time served, noting that Waggoner's father, a trucker, was in jail and then distant.

His mother took him out of Catholic school and he was abused in public school for not joining a gang. He was chased by men with a machete and so got the gun he was arrested in the nightclub with.

  The sentencing was set for August 14.

But on August 11 Judge John P. Cronan postponed it to September 20 at 10 am, asking for briefing on "correct application of the Guidelines, in particular, whether his prior conviction for violation NY Penal Law 120.05(12) qualifies as a crime of violence under USSG 4B1.2(a)."

 The case is US v. Waggoner, 22-cr-557 (Cronan)
