Man On Supervised Release Mistakes Fentanyl for Heroin Now Wants No Jail To Keep Studio

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 29 – Tyvann Barnett was up on a violation of supervised release after being sentenced to 24 months on drug charges in 2019.

   On June 25,  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding. Inner City Press called in to cover it. 

 Judge Engelmayer asked Barnett why he hadn't known up for drug treatment. The reply involved the lack of a car / ride, and the need to ask the step-father for help.

But Judge Engelmayer was not impressed and said a violation hearing should be held in two weeks.

Jump cut to January 28, 2024 when co-defendant Louis Brown was coming up for sentencing on a VOSR involving fentanyl which he'd thought was heroin. He pays $129 a month for his subsidized studio apartment in The Bronx, which he would lose if he is sent to prison. He asks for no prison, while Probation wants six months.

The case is US v. Barnett, 18-cr-390 (Engelmayer)
