Alleged gang member in ‘Justice for Junior’ case rejects
plea deal: attorney

THE BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11) – Danel Fernandez, a purported gang member allegedly seen on video dragging 15-year-old Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz out of a bodega before the teen was fatally stabbed in 2018, rejected a plea deal on Wednesday that would have sent him to prison for 18 years. 

Defense attorney Patrick Higgins told PIX11 News that his client won’t take the offer from the Bronx district attorney’s office. Higgins said Fernandez was willing to plead guilty to manslaughter for a 15-year sentence, but the Bronx District Attorney’s office rejected the counteroffer.
