Man Who Pled to Crack Sales Is Discouraged from 5th Lawyer Change Facing 60 Months

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 16 – John Grant pled guilty on September 12, 2022 to having sold crack starting in 2019, while he was on state parole.

 On March 16, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein convened a proceeding with Grant. Inner City Press went and covered it. 

Judge Stein had docketed that it was "regarding defendant's request to replace his counsel for a fifth time in this matter. At this time the Court is disinclined to grant that request." 

 On March 16, Grant said he would agree to keep his current (apparently and according to the docket, fifth) attorney, who then agree to file Grant's sentencing submission by April 3, before the April 17 sentencing.

The US Attorney's Office is asking for 60 months, noting DOJ's position that "in crack cocaine cases, the Court should vary downward and consider the range that would apply if the substance had been powder cocaine."

The case is US v. Grant, 21-cr-486 (Stein)
