Drug Co Defendants Plead Guilty Together But One Gets 48 Months The Other 32

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 – Jesus Manual Rojas and Prospero Gonzalez were together charged with narcotics conspiracy in Yonkers. And on October 28 they were back to back sentenced, and will both surrender on February 16.  

On October 28 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held the sentencings. Inner City Press covered them.  

 For Gonzalez, the US Attorney's office was for the guideline of 87 to 108 months but got 48.

For Rojas, his lawyer noted that a year ago Probation recommended 32 months but that since then "the prison landscape has transformed" due to COVID. 

Judge Castel seemed to agree, at least a bit, sentencing Rojas to 30 months. Both men can self-surrender on February 16.

The case is US v. Rojas, 19-cr-467 (Castel)
