Man Arrested For ATM Skimming in 2016 Gets Time Served in 2023, Sentencing Memo Sealed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 1 – Seven defendants were arrested in early 2016 for ATM skimming, from The Bronx to Las Vegas and elsewhere.  

   On March 1, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, now Second Circuit Judge Richard J. Sullivan held the belated sentencing for one of the defendants. Inner City Press was there.

  The Assistant US Attorney, who said this had been one of his first cases when he joined the Office, had not put his sentencing memo in the docket, and at the end asked for the transcript to be sealed. 

 Contradictorily, the restitution memo IS in the docket, naming the belatedly sentenced defendant and two others: Erbi Kau and Bledar Batska.

On the record - that is to say, in open court - he referred to an ongoing investigation in the Eastern District.

Judge Sullivan, along with granting the requested time served sentence, asked for filings on sealing within 30 days.

 The overall case is US v. Prelaj, et al., 16-cr-55 (Sullivan)
