Man Who Fired Gun in Manhattan High on Ecstasy Gets 366 Days But May Stay Concierge

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on January 3, a sentencing was held by Judge Sidney H. Stein on a defendant who fired a gun in Manhattan while high on ecstasy.

Inner City Press was there, the only non family member in the courtroom gallery. Related Mag Court live-tweeted thread (more on Patreon here) vlog here

  Reality Lucas' lawyer said he had and may still have a job as a concierge. Judge Stein expressed sympathy, but said allowing gunfire in crowded streets is not possible, that general deterrence is needed.

  Lucas' Federal Defender said the media is not paying attention to this case.

  Judge Stein stuck to what he had proposed, 366 days, and hoped Lucas will keep his job.

The case is US v. Lucas, 21-cr-382 (Stein)
