Trini family gets 418 years in jail in NY

Postby Allergic2BunnyEars » September 10th, 2015, 11:50 am

A couple and their daughter, originally from Trinidad, have been jailed in the United States for a total of 418 years, for conning 19 Caribbean immigrants out of more than $1.8 million.

In a sentence handed down by a court in Queens, New York on Wednesday, Shane Ramsundar, 52, wife Gomatee, 48, and daughter Stantal, 23, were described by the judge as “the most despicable gang of criminals to ever sit in front of me.”

“You and I know that if you did this fraud and paraded and strutted around in front of your own people, in your own country, you probably would have all been hacked to death,” Holder told the family, which hails from Trinidad. “But not in this country. Now it's your time to hear your return on your investment for your crime,” the judge said.

Shane Ramsundar received the maximum 235-year sentence. His wife was sentenced to 153 years and daughter 30 years.

The three were found guilty last November of grand larceny.

Prosecutors said that Shane Ramsundar told immigrants that he could get their names or terror watch lists, or prevent their deportation by getting then green cards.

Assistant District Attorney Catherine Kane said: “They stole from their own, people afraid of reporting to the police, terrified of being deported back to a place where they had no one to go home to”.

One of the victims was an immigrant suffering with multiple sclerosis who gave the family $43,000 after being told by the family of con artists that at he was about to be deported.

Ramsundar also fooled immigrants into believing that he could get them cheap housing.

Prosecutors said that the family used some of the money to buy cars, expensive hand bags, a $2,700 Yorkie dog and go on shopping sprees.

That sentencing is way too extreme for the crime committed. I believe they will appeal. I am certain they would have preferred deportation than such a harsh sentencing. Wow.

and why would we want more thieves here???? leave them to rot away in the jails there. That way Trinidad will not have the expense of looking after them in jail.

That sentence was handed down 3 years ago.

1. Clearly that judge working in a nice area if three fraudsters is “the most despicable gang" that judge ever see

2. What the hell does that judge think trinis are like.

3. Yeah the US could keep them though. We have enough fraudsters down here already. Can't believe they rip off a man with multiple sclerosis. They heartless.

Techno-phobic media house, the Trinidad Express, also decided to pull another gag on its long-suffering online readers today, as it published an article on a Trinidad and Tobago migrant family—Shane Ramsundar, 52, his wife, Gomatee, 48, and daughter Stantal, 23—that was sentenced to a combined total of 418 years in New York, after conning 19 Caribbean immigrants out of over US$1.8 million. Ramsundar got the maximum penalty of 235 years.

The Express told readers that the trio were sentenced on Wednesday, which, in this case, was not specific enough. The Ramsundar crime family was sentenced on Wednesday 11 January 2012.

God knows if New York prisons are as well served by the internet as Port of Spain’s Remand Yard, poor Shane might have gotten the shock of his life if he chanced across the article on Facebook.

“Another 235 years?! WTF!! But I wanted to catch the 2248 FIFA World Cup final?!”

Seriously, Express? Who runs your multi-media desk? Mr Peabody? Or the teenaged girls from “Best Friends Whenever?”

Still, it was an interesting case. Ramsundar, who is obviously as Trinidadian as bake and bujol and bobol, posed as a federal agent to Caribbean families who he then extorted for cash to provide legal status or duped into signing over their properties to him. He often warned victims that he could have them placed on the US terrorist list if they did not comply.

Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder described the family as: “the most despicable gang of criminals to ever sit in front of me.”

Clearly, Holder had never attended a meeting of Caribbean civil servants before.

“You and I know that if you did this fraud and paraded and strutted around in front of your own people, in your own country,” said Holder, “you probably would have all been hacked to death.

Mr Live Wire is guessing that Holder’s grasp of world affairs doesn’t extend much beyond the occasional Olympic track and field event.

Jack Warner allegedly defrauded the whole of Haiti as Port-au-Prince lay in ruins after the catastrophic 2010 earthquake. And UNC political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar responded by refusing to probe Warner and made him acting prime minister instead.

Ramsundar might have been Minister of the People if he had gotten his tail back home in 2010, when the US law officials arrested him.

Live Wire cannot confirm that Persad-Bissessar read about Ramsundar’s strategy of coercing gullible citizens with shake-downs, fraud and scare tactics and immediately called her campaign manager, Rodney Charles:

“If I only knew Shane was available two months ago, I woulda fire your tail!”
