On Monday, July 15, 2013, Irma Azrelyant and Alfia Iskandarova were handed down their sentences. Ms. Azrelyant received nearly the same sentence that Mr. Joshua Finkle received — 5 years of probation, with the first year of home confinement and location monitoring, along with $7,000,000 restitution with $100 payable immediately. Ms. Azrelyant will pay the restitution in monthly installments of $100, which if you did your math is twice Mr. Finkle’s $50 monthly installment.
Ms. Iskandarova received 3 years probation, no home confinement, along with $2,500,000 dollars restitution and $100 special assessment which was payable immediately.
The two postponements, as expected, belonged to Bridget Bonheyo and Jerome Bonheyo. According to PACER, no date has been recorded for their next sentencing date.
This concludes two defendants’ downfall from upstanding citizens to convicts, thus leaving five more defendants to be sentenced. Three are coming up next Monday, July 22nd.
On to other news, back in May, the Honorable Judge Pisano granted both Bonheyos’ request for their passports and release from their “Bail conditions” in order to attend the Deaflympics and the World Sports Congress. The orders were granted with the stipulation that they surrender their passports upon their return to the USA.
As per is usual, here are the documents from PACER.
