Fentanyl Case Pauses On 40 Grams Or More Then Resolved So Sentencing Feb 23 in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 23 – Jhancarlos Acosta-Liriano was accused of conflict to distributed 40 grams and more of fentanyl. 

On November 23 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

All was going according to script until defense lawyer Oliver S. Storch introduced the phrase 40 grams OR more.

Judge Castel said this wouldn't do and perhaps counsel and defendant should confer.  

They did, and Storch returned apologetic.

Judge Castel to his credit said the defense lawyer had only being trying to clarify things.

The plea was accepted and a sentencing date of February 23 at 11 am was set.

The case is US v. Acosta-Liriano, 19-cr-500 (Castel)
