Man Who Assaulted Postal Worker in Morgan Processing Cntr Pled Guilty Now Wants No Jail

March 18, 2024


SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 15 – Andrell Dukes was indicted for assaulting a US Postal Services worker in the Morgan Processing and Distribution Center in Manhattan.

On December 6 Dukes came to plead guilty before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Jennifer E. Willis, as covered by Inner City Press.

District Judge Lorna G. Schofield had set a trial date of January 29, 2024. That appears to have focused the mind. Dukes met his Federal Defender in the hallway of the SDNY (he is out on bond) and they proceed upstairs and pled guilty. Magistrate Judge Willis is recommending acceptance of the plea.

On March 15, 2024, Federal Defenders asked that Dukes be given a non-incarceratory sentence, on a guideline of 12 to 18 months, and a recommendation by Probation of six month prison, six months home confinement. Since August 2023, he has been working at an Amazon warehouse in Queens, similar to Larry Ray’s co-defendant working at Amazon in Staten Island (where she said her GPS “bracelet” caused her problems).

The case is US v. Dukes, 22-cr-581 (Schofield / Willis)
