Willette Says Friend Left Gun In His Bedroom Got Time Served now Pled as Felon with Ammo

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 2 – Dujohn Willette had been charged three times with firearms. 

   On November 18, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.

  Judge Schofield asked Willette, whom she let out of prison in March, if his wife was present with him. She's coming out of the shower and will put her top on, Willette genially replied.

  The US Attorney's Office, emphasizing the three times, said it wanted above the 15 to 21 month guideline.   

Willette said he was sorry, that a friend had come to his party and he hadn't known he had a gun.   The Assistant US Attorney called this outrageous, as the gun was found in an orange box in Willette's bedroom.

 A break was taken, and Willette returned to say that the friend had left the gun but never back back to pick it up.   Judge Schofield said she would have imposed 24 months but for COVID-19.

 As it was, she gave a time served sentence with three years of supervised release, the first four months on home detention.

 She asked Willette's wife if she will help keep him on the straight and narrow. She said she will.

Jump cut to November 1, 2023, when in a separately and subsequently wheeled out case Dujohn Willette pled guilty as a felon in possession of ammunition, to wit, 9mm Luger ammunition. His sentencing was set for December 5, 2023.

The earlier case is US v. Willette, 16-cr-790 (Schofield)

This case is US v. Willette, 23-cr-37 (Berman)
