Valentine Convicted of 2000 Bronx Murder Was Denied Sentence Reduction Now Glynn Tries

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 1– Anthony Valentine was charged with the murder of Frederick Fowler of the Clay Avenue Bloods on May 22, 2000. 

 On June 1, 2020 - more than twenty years later - U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff was urged to reduce his sentence. Inner City Press covered the proceeding.  

The US Attorney's Office emphasized that he killed a 32 year old man, and that he has served "only" 165 months of his 330 month sentence.    Valentine's lawyer said the judge should not only consider the wishes of the victim's family.

 Judge Rakoff denied the motion for sentence reduction.

On December 2, 2021, Judge Rakoff heard oral argument for release of Valentine's co-defendant Chas Glynn. His counsel compared Glynn's case to that of Valentine. Glynn spoke for himself, movingly. Judge Rakoff said he will decide in January.

The case is US v. Byrd, et al., 06-cr-580 (Rakoff).
