Man Who Was Present for Torture But Did Not Participate Got 46 Months Now a Co-D Too

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 29 – A man who participated in the kidnapping of a man from his music studio in The Bronx, then torture in an apartment in Hartford, was up for sentencing on January 30, 2024. Inner City Press was there.  

   U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan had already sentenced others in the case deemed more responsible to 210 months, 180 months, and 144 months for a diabetic.

    But Tuesday's defendant made no money from the kidnapping and underlying drug transaction. Instead, he was merely "weak," as defense counsel Sabrina Shroff and then Judge Kaplan put it. 

    With five family members in the gallery, where Inner City Press was the only media, Judge Kaplan said "I don't take pleasure in sending people to jail," before going below the 60 month guideline down to the 46 months requested.

On May 29, co-defendant Amaury Ruiz Martinez was sentenced to 46 months as well, "defendant remains detained."

 The case is US v. Perez, 22-cr-351 (Kaplan)
