Man Whose Step Father Made Him Drink Tequila Gets 57 Months As Felon in Possession

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 6 –A man up for sentencing a felon in possession of ammunition on June 6 had what his lawyer called "one of the most traumatic and troublesome childhoods one has encountered."  

It culminated with his step-father making him drink tequila as a punishment.  Thereafter he was prescribed Risperdal, Depakota and Ritalin, but he refused because it made him wobbly.

   On October 23, 2022, drunk, he fired a gun "knowing that he had previously been convicted of a felony." 

 On June 6, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon Broderick held the sentencing. Inner City Press was the only person in the gallery.

Judge Broderick was not without sympathy. In the end he sentenced Garcia to 57 months and said he hoped he never sees him again.

 The case is US v. Garcia, 23-cr-589 (Broderick)
