Pistol Whipping In Gas Station Comes Back To Haunt Crews In Post Davis Resentencing

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 29 – John Crews was a crime crew in the summer of 2013 in Monticello, Wallkill and Middletown, New York, committing armed robberies of a Denny's and two gas stations including a pistol-whipping, and a home invasion in which a victim was tasered in front of a child. 

  He was sentenced to 204 months, while his co-conspirator who actually did the pistol whipping got a four year deal by cooperating. 

 Then the US Supreme Court's in US v. Davis required a re-sentencing of Crew, presumably downward with a change application to gun charges.

  On October 29 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vincent L. Briccetti held the re-sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.  

Crews' lawyer was arguing that the cooperator had done the pistol whipping, but Judge Bricetti stopped him. He shares guilt for that, he said. Move on.

  Judge Briccetti crediting Crews for taking classes while in jail, including one on the history of Egypt.

 But he returned to the viciousness of the crimes, and imposed a sentence of 168 months or 14 years. The call was over.

The case is US v. Crews, 13-cr-835 (Briccetti)
