Man Who Quit Harlem Drug Dealing for NJ Got Time Served Smith Serving 20 Years 15 More?

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 3 – Daquan Garnett was part of a narcotics conspiracy selling in Harlem housing projects in 2019.

Then he withdrew and moved to New Jersey. He was still arrested. 

 On August 18, 2023 he was up for sentencing before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla. Inner City Press covered it.

  Garnett has been working at FedEx in Newark. He said he would like to move to the South, "not a big city."

 He asked for a time served sentence and after question received one, while Judge Failla noted that selling poison where your grandmother lives is troubling. She was told he didn't grow up there.

On January 25, 2024 for co-defendant Isaiah Smith, defense counsel wrote in asking for 60 months concurrent to a twenty to life sentence he is serving for a homocide conviction after trial in 2023.

On February 2-3, the US Attorney's Office asked for 15 year consecutive to the 20, including photos of the point black shooting in an East Harlem liquor store.

The case is US v. Hawkins, et al., 21-cr-414 (Failla)
