Murder in Mount Vernon Yields 25 Year Guideline With Career Offender Status Dropped

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 24 – Raheem Jones was charged with aiding and abetting a murder in Mount Vernon. He was assigned a Criminal Justice Act lawyer, Mark S. Demarco. 

  On May 17, 2019 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Nelson Stephen Roman relieved DeMarco and appointed Donna R. Newman as CJA counsel. 

  On November 24, Jones pleaded guilty to racketeering, and to the aiding and abetting murder, with a guidelines sentence of 300 months or 25 years.  Inner City Press covered the change of plea proceeding.

  During the proceeding Ms. Newman referred to an earlier version of the plea agreement which referred to Jones as a career offender.

AUSA Andew Fong Chow quickly pointed out that was never filed with the court.   

Jones, who said his first name was Lonzo, was read his newly-explicit Brady rights under the Due Process Protection Act - and then, as part of this plea, appeared to waive any Brady violation.

Ms. Newman added she was not aware of any such violations in his case. 

 Sentencing was set before Judge Roman for either February 25, or March 4, at 10:30 am.

The case is US v. Jones, 15-cr-661 (Roman).
