NYC Councilman Jumaane Williams Found Guilty Of Obstructing Ambulance; Represents Thousands Of Orthodox Jews

New York City councilman Jumaane Williams has been sentence to time served after he was convicted of blocking an ambulance during a protest over the detention of a prominent immigration rights activist in January.

For those who don’t know, Williams is an “agitator” who was arrested too many times to even count at black-lives-matters protests, Occupy Wall Street and the Trayvon Martin protests and the “he’s not my president” protests on Inauguration Day.

A jury on Monday found Williams guilty of obstructing emergency services. He was acquitted of disorderly conduct and the more serious charge of obstruction of government services.

The 41-year-old Democrat from Brooklyn was arrested outside a federal building over the detention of Ravi Ragbir, a citizen of Trinidad who has been fighting deportation after a fraud conviction.

Williams launched his campaign to unseat incumbent Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul a few days after his arrest.

They face off in the Democratic primary on Sept. 13.
