24-year-old Marine veteran Daniel Penny has been indicted by a New York City grand jury in the death of subway marauder Jordan Neely after charges were brought against him by far-left Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.
A Lower Manhattan grand jury voted to indict subway samaritan, Daniel Penny yesterday, meaning that the case against him will now go to trial. According to local media reports, while the indictment against Penny has not yet been unsealed, it is believed that, at the very least, he faces one charge of 2nd-degree manslaughter. That charge carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
The indictment will be unsealed when Penny appears in court for an arraignment hearing, the timing of which has yet to be released, but is expected to be announced before the end of this week, says local media.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams released a public statement thanking Bragg for bringing charges against Penny, and it’s been previously reported that Adams and Bragg “collaborated” in making the decision to prosecute the Marine Corps veteran.
“I appreciate DA Bragg conducting a thorough investigation into the death of Jordan Neely,” Adams said in his statement.
“Like I said when the DA first brought charges, I have the utmost faith in the judicial process, and now that the Grand Jury has indicted Daniel Penny, a trial and justice can move forward.”
Despite the fact that men of multiple races were involved in restraining subway marauder Jordan Neely, a career criminal who once tried to kidnap a little girl and was well-known for harassing and attacking subway riders and New York City pedestrians, elected Democrats, corporate media, and their Black Lives Matter allies have painted the entire event as a race issue, even accusing Penny of “lynching” Neely, who didn’t die on the subway car, but in a hospital.
Amidst Soros-funded Alvin Bragg’s efforts to throw Penny in prison, a GiveSendGo account has raised millions of dollars for the young man’s defense.
Thus far, the GiveSendGo page has raised more than $2.8 million dollars, and donors include Kid Rock and Vivek Ramaswamy, among others.
In recent days, Daniel Penny released a public video statement detailing his account of the events that led to Jordan Neely’s death, who Penny says “appeared to be on drugs” – a claim that’s been corroborated by witnesses.
“The three main threats that [Jordan Neely] repeated over and over were ‘I’m gonna kill you,’ ‘I’m prepared to go to jail for life,’ and ‘I’m willing to die’,” Penny revealed in the statement.
