Who Is Daniel Penny?
A former US Marine has appeared in court to face manslaughter charges after putting a tube passenger in a fatal chokehold. Jordan Neely, 30, was found dead on May 1 and Daniel Penny, 24, is suspected of being the cause. He didn’t plead guilty. His attorneys said that he could not have known that trying to restrain Mr. Neely would result in his death. Homeless Mr. Neely was held captive on the railway car for a number of minutes while being pinned to the ground. Witnesses claimed that he had been yelling at other passengers and pleading for cash.
Later, Mr. Neely was discovered in the carriage unresponsive. He was transported to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead. The city’s medical examiner determined that his neck was compressed which caused his death. Mr. Penny, who had his hands behind his back, made an official court appearance at Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday. He was later freed on a $100,000 ($80,000) cash bond. The judge commanded him to appear in court once more on July 17 or else an arrest warrant will be issued. Along with surrendering his passport, he must also apply for permission to traverse state borders. Mr. Penny was questioned by police on the day Mr. Neely passed away and then let go.
Mr. Penny showed up at a police station in Manhattan on Friday morning in a black SUV to turn himself up. He did not reply or respond to any of the inquiries from the reporters gathered outside while wearing a black suit and a white shirt. Thomas Kenniff, the man’s attorney, claimed that his client had “his head held high” and had voluntarily turned himself in “with the kind of dignity and integrity that is characteristic of his history of service to this grateful nation.” If found guilty of a second-degree manslaughter charge, he could spend up to 15 years behind bars. In order to be found guilty of that crime under New York law, a jury must determine that Mr. Penny acted recklessly and so increased the risk of death beyond a reasonable doubt.
