For Similar Check Kiting Zhang Gets 6 Months After Zheng Got Time Served, 30K and a Day

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 20 – Kejin Zhang was up for sentencing on November 20, 2023 for using four fake IDs to commit $157,000 in check kiting.  

  Zhang appeared before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John P. Cronan. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the courtroom. 

 Judge Cronan said that his fellow District Judge Edgardo Ramos had on November 17 sentenced Chaobin Zheng to time served for $138,226.99 in check kiting.

As of noon on November 20, that time served sentence was not in the docket, but the Government's letter recommending 12 month in prison for Zheng was. That case is US v. Zheng, 23-cr-352 (Ramos)  

 After taking a break to deliberate, Judge Cronan returned and sentenced Zhang to six months imprisonment and one year of supervised release, the first six months of which are to be home detention.

 He did not follow Probation's recommended search condition. 

This case is US v. Zhang, 23-cr-366 (Cronan)
