Man Who Pled Guilty for Bronx Shooting Said Was Psychotic at Time Now Gets 5 Years

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 14 – Jahlil Ford is alleged to have fired a gun at a car on 178th Street and Daly Avenue in The Bronx on January 24, 2022. He is charged with being a felon in possession of a gun and has been detained since January 26, 2022.   

 On March 14, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker arraigned Ford, when after a number of orders to continue in the interest of justice, he was indicted. Inner City Press went and covered it.  

 Ford, still in detention after one year, had a number of questions for his CJA lawyer. She pled him not guilty.

The case was assigned to District Judge, Lorna G. Schofield. Ford pled guilty and on February 20, 2024, his counsel asked for a sentencing of 33 months when sentencing is set to occur, on March 11.

On March 7, the defense wrote in again, offering to bring corrections records to sentencing and stating that "Jahlil was in fact psychotic at the time of the charged conduct."

On May 14, he was sentenced to five years in prison, with a medical facility to prevent psychotic episodes recommended.

The case is US v. Ford, 23-cr-107 (Schofield)
