After NYCHA Extortion Take Down Nena Huntley Pleads to Misdemeanor for $2100

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 7 – For days Inner City Press had heard from its sources there would be a "takedown" on February 6, each SDNY Magistrate Judge would handle seven to 10 defendants.

Arrests happen at 6 am. So at 5:55 am Inner City Press tweeted it, first to X subscribers with the spoiler alert: the expectation was that each of the current or former NYCHA employees would be released on bond the same day.  

And then hours later at 9:39 am the prosecutors announced it. Media rushed around reporting it.  Inner City Press had it first, and after discretely waiting, published it first. Then this thread of presentments, here.

On March 27, another guilty plea, by Joseph Fuller for taking $37,800 in bribes. The guideline, Magistrate Judge James L. Cott said, is 18 to 24 months, with a June 26 control date before Judge Dale E. Ho.

On April 8, a plea by NYCHA defendant Michael Davis, to a misdemeanor: defrauding HUD. He took $4000 for contracts worth $29,000. He will be sentenced by (Chief) Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn, with a July 8 control date.

On April 9, a plea by NYCHA defendant Elizabeth Tapia to a felony, for taking $11,000 in bribes for contracts worth $66,000.  Somewhere between the two is the Office's line between misdemeanor and felony, with all its consequences.

On May 6 another misdemeanor - seemingly the lowest dollar amount yet: Nena Huntley, who took $2100 in bribes for contracts worth $28000. Sentencing is set for September 18.

The case is US v. Huntley, 24-cr-283 (Stein)
