As a member of the “Brooklyn’s Most Wanted” gang, his rap sheet looks exactly like you’d expect—nine arrests and charges including robbery, grand larceny and illegal guns. The last two gun busts occurred on Nov. 25, 2015, and 10 days later on Dec. 5, 2015.
Yet unbelievably, Junior Regis, 23, was still roaming the streets as a free man. We can thank Judge Genine D. Edwards for that—despite a prosecution request to deny bail or set it at $500,000, she set it at a paltry $1,000.
So it was unsurprising when Regis again ran afoul of the law and was picked up Feb. 17 for armed robbery and possession of illegal guns. This time, Judge Michael Yavinsky denied bail and Regis remains locked up.
Judge Edwards, meanwhile, was sworn in as a justice of the Supreme Court of the state of New York on Dec. 21, 2015.
