Sandson Robbed Verizon Store and Banks Then Pled Guilty Now on 63rd Birthday Gets 5 Years

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 20 – Andrew Sandson was charged with robbing banks and a Verizon store in midtown Manhattan. He appeared on June 1 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John P. Cronan. Inner City Press was there. 

 The complaint has a photo of a note that Sandson used: "We have a member of the branch manager's family - we demand $10,000 - no dye packs - Give us the money now! Do not hit alarm!"

  He had done it before, and now came to plead guilty, with criminal history ranking of 5.

On November 6, his Federal Defender wrote in seeking a sentence of 36 months to be served in a Federal Medical Center, specifically Devens.

On November 20, Inner City Press went to his sentencing. It was his 63rd birthday, he said, and said he was ready to move on with his life. Judge Cronan said if he'd known it was Sandson's birthday he would have chosen another day. He sentenced him to 60 months, or five years.

 The case is US v. Sandson, 22-cr-402 (Cronan)
