Justice Delayed – Still Sweet
In early 2016, a convicted felon named Brian Wright was facing the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison for masterminding a string of armed robberies which netted $1.1 million worth of jewelry.
Then, suddenly, the April 25 trial date for Wright and co-defendant Danielle Perreira was vacated. U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon ripped into the federal prosecutors handling the case for discovery violations. He also gutted the Government’s case, cutting their time and witnesses list to the bone.
