(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) While Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his team try their best to put President Donald Trump behind bars, they reportedly care considerably less about New York City‘s worst criminals still roaming the streets and hurting the people who live in the Big Apple.
Harold Gooding, 53, has rocketed to number one on the NYPD’s list of repeat offenders following his torrent of thefts. Gooding has more than 70 arrests just for theft alone, reported the Daily Mail, which ran down nearly a dozen of the more egregious examples of the Soros-funded Bragg’s track record of releasing violent offenders while he was busy trying to keep his campaign promise to nail Trump.
Michelle Kelley, 41, is a self-described “professional booster” who kept her crimes to petit larceny, which became a non-jail-able offense after the law went into effect in 2020. However, she was finally held on $5,000 bail after her 101st arrest for second-degree assault after she allegedly kicked, bit, scratched and spit on two NYPD officers on July 30.
Career criminal William Rolon who had 30 years of crimes under his belt was charged with first-degree robbery and criminal weapons possession but had the robbery charge dropped to two counts of petit larceny, a misdemeanor, the Mail reported.
“I don’t know if anyone would ever feel lucky standing in front of me in a courtroom, but you might reasonably feel lucky today,” the judge said.
“Based on your record, you would have faced a long period of time in jail if convicted. The newly elected district attorney has new policies. You’re not charged with robbery, You’re charged with a misdemeanor here.”
Jamel Pringle, one of the most prolific criminals in the Big Apple, with 167 arrests on his record, is also not behind bars.
Rodney Johnson, 53, a criminal of 35 years, was given a slap-on-the-wrist punishment — a $1 bail — last week after Bragg’s office knocked down his felony robbery charges to a misdemeanor. Isaac Rodriguez is another criminal who racked up 47 arrests for retail theft and got behind bars on $15,000 bail.
Nolan Gonzalez, a thief who was banned from Macy’s for constantly stealing from the department store, was hit by the police with grand larceny, burglary and criminal possession of the stolen property, but the Manhattan DA reduced the charges and he was released without bail.
Christian Jeffers, 48, a so-called “transgender” who has a criminal record of prostitution, grand larceny, public lewdness, theft of service and drug possession, was arrested in March 2022 on charges of assault, aggravated harassment and menacing as hate crimes and one count of criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a brutal attack on a 29-year-old man.
He was released from prison in June 2021 after serving six years for second-degree robbery.
