He was last arrested on July 26th for a July 22nd robbery. He was released on July 27th. Four days later he slashed this woman with a box cutter.

The judge is Marty Lentz. Lentz was a DeBlasio appointee and career Legal Aid NYC criminal defense attorney.

These articles often say that the victim is expected to recover, which is itself a minimization of the crime and its effects. No scars? Ongoing nerve pain or muscle tightness? No long term psychological problems - PTSD - caused by an unprovoked attack in broad daylight?

That was fast. He must be a moron.

If this is the same guy in WebCrims, he got a ticket for drinking and playing his music too loudly on the LIRR back in February, and was arrested for assault and robbery in Queens last week.

ETA: But it might not be the same guy. Anthony Evans is a fairly generic name.

ETA2: He was remanded and ordered to undergo psychiatric testing.

Why were we so tough with mandatory minimums on kids smoking weed but routinely let violent psychopaths off every hook imaginable?

If you are a resident of NYC do yourself a favor and apply for a NYPL.

Walk the 1 mile radius of streets and avenues around Times Square. There are insane assholes on every block. Some are in a pile of their own filth. Some barking at the clouds in a psychotic rage. Something has to be done. The city is an open-air insane asylum.
