Jewish pot kingpin and family man Jon Braun was indicted almost ten years ago. Braun spent the last ten years on home confinement at his parents house in Staten Island while he cooperated with the Feds to bust drug dealers connected with his multi-million dollar international pot dealing operation. Braun got married and sired a few kids while on home confinement. The Feds seized over a million bucks in cash when they busted Braun.
Mr. Braun’s sentencing date was delayed for almost a year during 2019. While Braun was waiting to be sentenced, Braun got involved in the merchant cash advance business, a loosely regulated loan shark business operated by many shady Jews from New York and New Jersey. Bloomberg reported how Braun’s business, Richmond Capital, charged interest rates of over 400% per year.
Prior to Braun’s sentencing hearing a number of letters were submitted to Judge Matsumoto by victims of Braun’s strong arm loan collection practices. Rabbi Avraham Lesches, of Crown Heights got a restraining order against Braun. Braun threatened Lesches and told him: “Do you know who I am? I know everyone in your Chabad-Lubavitch community. I am going to come down there and beat the shi* out of you at 770 Eastern Parkway… I am going to hang papers all over the lamp posts in Crown Heights stating that you are a liar and a thief… I am going to make you bleed, you are going to regret the day you met me.”
Another victim of Braun submitted a letter to Judge Matsumoto and indicated that he filed a lawsuit alleging that Mr. Braun “intentionally shoved him off a two-story balcony and he sustained very serious injury.” Another separate lawsuit alleged that Braun threatened to beat the borrower because he fell behind in payments on a business debt. Federal Judge Matsumoto also had access to other lawsuits in which borrowers alleged that they were threatened by Mr. Braun, while he was wearing an ankle bracelet.
At Braun’s sentencing hearing Judge Matsumoto asked the US Attorney whether the FBI investigated any of the allegations against Braun involving his strong arm loan sharking business. The US Attorney told Matsumoto that it “takes all of the allegations of additional conduct very seriously, it has been investigating those allegations, and based on the facts the Government has been able to gather, there’s nothing further for the Government to the present to the Court that would either be additional criminal conduct or otherwise materially impact sentencing.” In other words the Feds didn’t want to waste any time busting Braun for street crimes of assault and battery. The Feds work on big cases. The Feds don’t waste their time with crimes that are normally handled by the local boys in blue. The Feds will never make the headlines busting Braun for pushing a borrower out the window.
As part of his plea deal, and cooperation agreement, Mr. Braun admitted to conspiring to import 10,000 kilograms of marijuana from Canada into the United States from November 2007 to May 2010. Braun moved about $6 million a week, and laundered about $14 million dollars in cash a week. Probation recommended 27 years of incarceration. Braun’s attorney argued for 10 years. Federal Judge Matsumoto calculated Braun’s Sentencing Guidelines at 33 years of incarceration, but only sentenced Braun to ten years. Judge Matsumoto stated at sentencing: “Mr. Braun’s used threats and actual violence to collect drug debts and deter fellow co-conspirators from cooperating with the government, including traveling across the country and whipping an individual with a belt. Also Mr. Braun acted as a leader and organizer of the vast conspiracy that involved individuals in other countries.”
Braun got his surrender date pushed off a few times because he filed a motion claiming his attorney provided him with ineffective assistance of counsel. Braun argued that he should have been sentenced to less than ten years. The Judge found nothing ineffective about Braun’s attorney. How could Braun’s attorney be ineffective if he got Braun only ten years when he was facing more than 30? Braun obviously filed his motion as a delay tactic. Judge Matsumoto ordered Braun to self surrender by January 2, 2020.
Braun requested a bunk at Otisville camp. Braun meets the camp criteria. Braun’s sentence is ten years or less, and his crime is one of non-violence. Drug dealing is considered a non violent crime by the Federal Government.
Many of the guys at Otisville are old Jewish men. Braun will feel like he is trapped in a retirement home in Miami Beach. Most of the middle aged and younger guys are locked up for financial crimes. There are a few violent drug dealers in the camp. It sounds as if Braun has a bad temper and some anger management issues. If you lose your cool you will end up in the SHU (solitary).
We shall see how long Braun lasts in the camp. The problem with the camp is that guys drop their guard. They think that they can get away with anything with the lower security level. They don’t realize that eventually they will get caught and sent right to the SHU. All it takes is for one tough guard to catch them smuggling, smoking, or stealing. I remember when I was in Otisville a lot of guys liked to smoke cigarettes. The cigarettes were smuggled in and sold for $4 a loosie. They all smoked together in the same area and had hiding places for their cigarettes, ie., behind a rock, under a log, etc.. Eventually they knew each other’s hiding places and stole from each other. They got into a lot of fights, not physical, but they would urinate on each other’s beds, steal other guys stuff, or just trash the other guy’s cubicle. It wasn’t long before the guards figured out what they were doing and locked a few of them up in the SHU. These guys thought that they would never get caught. Inmates don’t realize that other inmates are just as bad as the guards and will rat you out in a second.
Braun already did a year and a half at MDC or MCC after he turned himself in after he fled to Canada and then Israel. He must have negotiated a deal with the Feds to cooperate and come back to the States to plead guilty. Braun is going to think Otisville is a joke compared to MDC or MCC. MDC is where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. If Braun gets too comfortable in Otisville and lets his guard down he will get busted and thrown in the SHU and then shipped out to another prison.
Jon Braun has a bad temper and is extremely violent. Otisville Inmate Michael Cohen talks tough but is all talk. Trump’s rat Michael Cohen is having someone on the outside tweet messages on Cohen’s twitter account. Unreal. Tweeting from prison has to be a worse crime than blogging from prison, something I did, which got the inmates irate. Guys poured chicken soup on my bed and stole my watch. Cohen just tweeted to his 400K fans the following: “Michael wants to wish EVERYONE a happy holiday and prosperous
#NewYear2020. Let’s wish him the same… white envelopes only. Michael Cohen (86067-054), FCI Otisville Satellite Camp, PO Box 1000, Otisville NY 100963. Enjoy the time with your families.” Cohen is a complete putz! Tough guy Cohen was recorded by the FBI stating that the people surrounding Trump were “swamp rats whom I want to crack across the jaw.” I hope Braun cracks Cohen across the jaw.
Come now, Mattaathias, be the first to obey the King’s command, as all the Gentiles and Judeans have done, then you and your sons shall be numbered among the King’s friends, and you and your sons shall be honored with silver and gold and many gifts. You are a leader, and honorable and great man in the city, supported by sons and kindred. But Mattathias answered in a loud voice, ‘Although the Gentiles and Judeans in the king’s realm obey him, so that they forsake their religion and consent to the king’s orders, yet I and my sons will keep to the covenant of our ancestors. We will not obey the words of the King by departing from our religion in the slightest degree.’” 1 Maccabees Ch. 2.
