Jonathan Braun Has Checked In To Prison
Jon Braun, who Bloomberg Businessweek profiled in a 2018 story series, checked into FCI Otisville on Thursday. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison on May 28th for drug related offenses he committed a decade ago. He was originally scheduled to surrender on August 25th but he successfully delayed the date until today, January 2nd.
I have not attempted to contact Mr. Braun since the day of his sentencing. But purely by chance I shared an elevator with him in the Brooklyn Federal Courthouse on May 28th just mere minutes after he had been handed ten years. Given the opportunity, I asked him how he felt about what just happened.
“I hope it goes by quick,” he replied stoically.Last modified: January 20, 2021
