Ramsay Serving Life For Murder Cites Head Injury In Jamaica For Compassionate Release

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 9 – Andrew Ramsay was sentenced to life in prison in 1998 after being convicted of murder after a jury trial.   

On December 9  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held oral argument on Ramsay's application for compassionate release.Inner City Press covered it.  

Judge Rakoff, who had signed the life imprisonment order in 1998, spoke of how if he'd had the discretion he might have imposed 30 years. Ramsay has already served 28.   

There is now a mitigation report, by Conrad Lindo LMSW, that "Andrew reports a childhood history of head injury.

He said there was an incident that occurred when he was dropped on his head while he was staying with his maternal grandmother in Jamaica... A head injury can have significant effects on brain / neurological, mental, emotional, behavioral functioning."

Judge Rakoff thanked the lawyers and said he will have a decision soon.

The case is US v. Ramsay, 96-cr-1098 (Rakoff)
