For Selling 5 Kilos of Fentanyl Man Gets 10 Years With Medical Facility Recommended

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 12 – Lorenzo Torres pled guilty to fentanyl distribution - five kilograms in weight, after previous arrests and convictions. 

  On January 12, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan held Torres' sentencing. Inner City Press managed to cover it.

     The US Attorney's Office sentencing memorandum recounts Torres' criminal history, including convictions in Arizona in 2003 and in California (under another name) in 2017. It quotes from Probation's PSR:

"in speaking with his girlfriend, she was unsure why he would be involved in the instant offense and disclaimed that they were suffering from significant financial hardships. Torres just does not appear to have regard for the laws of this country."   

   Judge Kaplan, called Torres' conduct brazen but also noting his health conditions, sentencing him to 120 months, noting that in other circumstance, he might have gone lower. He recommended BOP's medical facility in Springfield, Missouri.

  Afterward, defense counsel told Torres they would set up a video call next week, and confirmed to him he had been sentenced to ten years. He was led out by the U.S. Marshals.

 The case is US v. Torres, 21-cr-466 (Kaplan)
