Bank Fraudster Convicted As Brannon Said His Last Name Is Scott Now Detained on VOSR

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 16 – A Desmond Brannon was sentenced, for stealing checks and paying homeless people to cash altered versions of them, to a year and a day by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge William H. Pauley III. That was in 2018. 

 On May 22, 2020 Judge Pauley held a telephone proceeding with Brannon and Inner City Press covered it.

Judge Pauley asked Brannon why he had not followed up with Probation about working for FreshDirect.   

Brannon explained this in light of avoiding COVID-19.

Judge Pauley pointed out that other hard working New Yorkers are riding the subway and working.

Brannon said that he is working, then that it is an unpaid internship. Judge Pauley expressed scepticism, then asked Brannon why he was snickering.

   Brannon said it was a cough.

The next conference was held on August 4, and Inner City Press again covered it. It emerged that the name is Desmond Scott, the case was done "under an a/k/a." Judge Pauley again said that employment is important. Brannon / Scott said he is still concerned about taking the subway, but would do it to show Judge Pauley something.

Jump cut to March 16, 2023; Brannon's case was reassigned to Judge Gregory H. Woods from Judge Pauley (RIP). Judge Woods ruled: Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Gregory H. Woods:Revocation of Supervised Release as to Desmond Brannon held on 3/16/2023. Defendant Desmond Brannon (in custody) present with attorney Ian Howard Marcus Amelkin AUSA Robert Benjamin Sobelman present. U.S. Probation officer Elisha Rivera present.
