Man Charged As Felon with Ammo Said He Was Sprayed Pled Guilty US Wants 10 Years

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 5 – Marvin Minott a/k/a Tyson Smith is charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, to wit, one .38 caliber shell casing.             

         On April 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

After Judge Carter asked about the status of discovery and its review, Minott spoke for himself and said he has been "sprayed like an animal" while in detention.

  Jump cut to December 20, 2023 - the trial had been postponed, most recently for a competency exam. In the interim a jail call was read out to Judge Carter, a woman offered to say it was her gun.

Dr. Ryan Nybo met with Minott for two hours; "the defendant did not agree to further evaluation." On December 20, with the finding of competency uncontested, a February 12, 2024 trial date was set. Minott was allowed to speak with his sister in the courtroom for two minutes - he was the last detainee of the day to be taken from the courthouse.

On February 6, 2024, Minott pled guilty to count 1 of the indictment.

On July 3, the US Attorney's Office wrote it to ask for 10 years; sentencing is set for July 11. Minott has asked for three years.
The case is US v. Minott, 21-cr-702 (Carter)
