Man on Probation Consented to Search of Bronx Apartment Full of Guns Now Wants 30 Months

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 24 – Tyrome Brehon served 20 years on a murder rap. Then on August 30, 2023 while still on probation he consented to a police search of his Bronx apartment in which guns and heroin were found.

 On August 31, 2023, he appeared before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court. 

 The US sought detention. Brehon's Federal Defender emphasized that he had invited the police into his residence.

Judge Lehrburger said this might be trying to curry favor with the police, deceptively. He ordered detention. 

On December 20, after the case was indicted and assigned to Judge John P. Cronan, Brehon was in court re-applying for bail. Inner City Press was there. His Federal Defender emphasized he had invited the police in.

 Judge Cronan noted that, saying it seemed he might have wanted to be arrested - there was reference to him selling heroin only in order to pay a debt, and a text message to a woman that he had a gun and drug. The defense implied that was puffery.

On June 24, after a plea, Federal Defenders for Brehon asked for a sentence of 30 months, with sentencing set for July 8.

The case is US v. Brehon, 23-cr-555 (Cronan)
