Bronx Man Charged for 400 Grams of Fentanyl Gets 57 to 71 Month Deal and August Date

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 25 – Juan Diaz was arrested on November 9, 2022 for dealing fentanyl in The Bronx.

The complaint referenced a bag with 400 packets of fentanyl and 22 rounds of nine millimeter ammunition. Diaz was released on $50,000 bond and his case was repeatedly "continued in the interest of justice." 

 On May 25, 2023, Inner City Press met Diaz outside the Magistrates Courtroom of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, from which Inner City Press had been asked to step out for a sealed proceeding. Inner City Press told Diaz about the exclusion, and that it was there to report on proceedings.

  Diaz had arrived early, to plead guilty. The US Attorney's Office had given him a so-called Pimintel letter, estimating his guideline sentence at 57 to 71 months. 

 Inside the Mag Court, after the sealed proceeding was over, Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein asked Diaz if he was seeing a doctor.

Diaz said yes, as he had out in the hall, he has plate with screws in his back. But he is not taking medication that would impact his ability to plead guilty. 

 Plead he did. The case was wheeled out to District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan and sentencing set for August 23, 2023.

The case is now US v. Diaz, 23-cr-260 (Kaplan / Gorenstein)
