Guyanese businessman Ghalee Khan has been resentenced in US Federal Court to just 18 months. Judge Frederic Block after a few delays imposed the sentence on September 26th. Khan has already served 42 months since he surrendered to US authorities in March of 2020. Khan had jumped bail and fled to Guyana after he was arrested on a narcotics charge in the US over a decade and a half ago.
Ghalee Khan appealed the first sentence of just over 8 years imposed on him. He won that appeal and the court ordered that he be resentenced. He is now awaiting travel documents to return to Guyana where he operated a security firm. He has agreed not to pursue legal action for the extra time he was forced to serve as a result of the initial sentencing of 97 months plus three years of supervised release.
