Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg faced a growing backlash Wednesday after the NY Post revealed a “sweetheart deal” he cut with a career criminal who was arrested at least 90 times.
From the NY POST:
Soft-on-crime Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is blowing tax dollars on prosecuting Donald Trump — while giving career criminals a real break.
Rodney Johnson, 53, who has nearly 90 busts on his rap sheet and two state prison stints under his belt, saw his felony robbery charges knocked down to slap-on-the-wrist misdemeanors by Bragg’s office last week, law enforcement sources told The Post Tuesday.
“This guy has been breaking the law for 35 years,” one law enforcement source said.
“He’s been a one-man robbery spree preying on low-wage workers, then when the cops catch the guy, Bragg’s office downgrades the felon charges,” the sources said.
“All the while [Bragg] chases an indictment of the former president for paying a porn star. Priorities.”
