PR Swindler Garson Pled Guilty to 51 to 63 Month Deal Now US Asks for 36 Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 20 – On October 1, 2019 then-Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox filed a sealed indictment against an alleged public relations fraudster and on October 2 after a delay set him free on bail to New Jersey and soon elsewhere.

The US Attorney's Office for the SDNY at 1:30 pm tweeted their arrest of Andrew Garson, which had occured at 6 am. But at 6:30 pm, with Garson seated in the Magistrates Court with two retained attorneys, no Assistant US Attorney turned up. Judge Fox asked his Deputy to call, repeatedly. Eventually she spoke to another AUSA in the Mag Court, waiting to request the passport of a woman for allegedly driving drunk on Quantico base in Virginia.

 It was 6:55 pm when AUSA Christopher J. DiMase rolled in. He said he was considering Garson's request to travel even beyond New Jersey. Garson was released on his own signature, a $500,000 bond with two financial responsible co-signed given two weeks to appear.

Jump cut three years later: on November 1, 2023, Garson pled guilty before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Judge Laura Taylor Swain. The plea deal is for a 51 to 63 month guideline

OOOn March 12, 2024, Garson's lawyers asked for a "non-carceral sentence." On March 19, the US asked for "at least 36 months," noting that Probation recommends 24 months and one of the victims requests at least 41 months, on March 26.

The case is US v. Garson, 19-cr-703 (Swain).
