Death of Pot Seller In Brooklyn in 2011 Results in 3 Guilty Pleas & Now 216 Months for Mazur

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 6 – Kevin Taylor, Gary Robles and Michael Mazur were indicted for the death of Joshua Robin while robbing him of marijuana near 1021 McDonald Avenue, Brooklyn.     

  On January 5 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Laura Taylor Swain held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  At issue was when to schedule a trial. Judge Swain suggested October or November, noting that she may have to hand it off to another judge given her responsibilities in the Puerto Rico bankruptcy case.

  One of the defense counsel countered that he has a multi-defendant Puerto Rico murder trial in the Fall.

  On April 16, with the case re-assigned to Judge Jed S. Rakoff, another proceeding was held and Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Rakoff, in the middle of a jury trial concerning the slashing of cooperating witness, asked if the counsel here would stick with the schedule agreed to before Judge Swain. Yes, was the answer.

On September 17, 2021, KEVIN TAYLOR, GARY ROBLES, and MICHAEL MAZUR pled guilty to participating in the October 31, 2011, murder of Joshua Rubin.  After shooting and killing Rubin in Brooklyn, New York, the defendants drove Rubin’s body to rural Pennsylvania, where they doused his body in lighter fluid and set it on fire.  TAYLOR and ROBLES pled guilty today.  MAZUR pled guilty on July 1, 2021.  All three defendants will be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff, to whom the case is assigned."

On December 6, Mazur was sentenced to

The case is US v. Taylor, et al., 20-cr-227 (Rakoff)
