Jason Fleming Ran With 2 Guns Until Tackled in NY Street US Asked for 5 Years with Photos

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURT Exclusive, Nov 1  – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on March 17, 2023 a bail or detention proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker on a man who brandished a loaded rifle and handgun in a bodega in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood then was running away when he was tackled by a Good Samaritan and arrested.

On March 30, Jason Fleming still detained was formally indicted -- just the single count of felon in possession of a firearm -- and the case was assigned to District Judge Broderick.

On April 6, Judge Broderick held a bail appeal. Inner City Press was there, the only media, thread here:

All rise!

Judge: I understand there's a bail appeal. I have a letter from Laneeah (sp) Contracting LLC, and pictures of Mr Fleming with children for whom he has taken on the responsibility as parent. I have seen the 3 video. FD: He doesn't have a passport.

Federal Defender: His partner is here. There is mitigating evidence. He did not fire the guns. He was drunk and emotionally unstable. He was trying to throw the revolver over the fence. He was trying to de-escalate

Federal Defender: 922(g) may no longer be a crime of violence. Guns are a commerce problem. Guns can be sold in many jurisdictions, just not this one. 

Judge: I am going to order Mr Fleming remain detained.

On July 27, Inner City Press went to Fleming's proceeding before Judge Vernon S. Broderick and it was a change of plea, to guilty. Thread:

OK- now at US v Jason Fleming, who was tackled by Good Samaritan while running with 2 guns. He is pleading guilty.

 As felon in possession of a firearm, Jason Fleming has not gotten a plea deal but rather a Pimintel letter says guideline is 33 to 41 months.

Federal Defender says he will be contesting 4 enhancements, says he did not try to rob store, rather verbal altercation

Federal Defender says he calculates guideline as 12 to 18 month. AUSA says Office anticipates seeking more than 41 months.  Fleming is rolling the dice

 Fleming admits having the guns, on 24th Street and 10th Avenue on March 16, 2023.

Begins to apologize - Federal Defender tells him to stop, there'll be time for that at sentencing

On October 24, Federal Defenders for Fleming asking for a time served sentence.

On October 26, the US Attorney's Office asked for 60 months - five years. On November 1, the US put in a Cellebrite extraction with photos of the defendant - and others - with guns...

The case is US v. Fleming, 23-cr-174 (Broderick)
