Man Who Bought Gun After Threats for Not Rejoining Gang After Prison Gets 18 Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 14 – A man who served prison time for crimes as part of a gang in the Millbrook Houses in the South Bronx was arrested again in July 2022 as a felon in possession of a gun.

 On March 14, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge Analisa Torres held his sentencing. Inner City Press went and covered it. 

  The defense lawyer said when his client is released this time, he will be moving out of the neighborhood, he has put in an application for a voucher. He got the gun to protect himself, since he didn't want to continue in the gang. 

 Judge Torres noted that while out, he had worked three jobs to support his now two year old child. Speaking for himself, he said he started a business as well and would like to go to college when he gets out, and out of The Bronx.

  Judge Torres imposed a sentence of 18 month, some of it already served, and six months on the VOSR, to run concurrent and not consecutive as the prosecutor had requested. 

The newer case is US v. Snipes, 22-cr-418 (Torres)
