Woman Who Sold Cars She Did Not Own Gets Time Served after 10 Months, Now Lithuania

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 17 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, a sentencing was held by Judge Analisa Torres on Svetlana Vaidotiene for her part in a scheme to offer for sale vehicles she did not, in fact, own.

Inner City Press went to cover the sentencing, the only person in the courtroom gallery.

  Vaidotiene was in MDC prison beige, with two Marshals behind her. In Russian, she offered thanks to the MDC for allowing her to do sports, and to read books in Russian. She said there had been no opportunity to learn English in the MDC. She said she is eager to return to Lithuania including to, ironically, the car she loves.

  The guidelines were 27 to 33 months, but Probation recommended 18 months. The US Attorney's Office followed that: not less than 18.

  Judge Torres sentenced her to time served - ten months already, in Lithuania and the MDC. No supervised release since she will be deported.

 The case is US v. Vaidotiene, 21-cr-295 (Torres)
