For Bronx Fentanyl Sales With Cash Selfies Cited Flores Got 90 Months so Wilson Asks 60

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 27 – Jose Flores pled guilty to fentanyl sales in The Bronx.

On July 19, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Judge Laura Taylor Swain held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The Assistant US Attorney emphasized that Flores specialized in deadly fentanyl, and bragged on social media about how much money he was making, thereby luring other neighborhood youths into the trade.

He said there was a need for a serious sentence, ask for 121 to 151 months. 

 The defense asked for the mandatory minimum of 60 months.

After hearing from both sides, Chief Judge Swain arrived at a sentence of 90 months, followed by five years of supervised release.

Jump cut to March 27, 2024 in the same case, Robert Wilson's counsel wrote in requesting a sentence "dangerously close to the mandatory minimum," 60 months.

The case is US v. Flores, 20-cr-126 (Swain).
