If conviicted he colud spend upwards sof thirty years behind bars, he therfore planning to mount a very sophisticated defense, based on proving ‘mistaken identity’.
According to federal defender Mia Eisner-Grynberg “Mr. Walker denies that he is the robber,” “This is a case of misidentification.” Eisner-Grynberg stated in court papers.
The shopkeeper, Almontaser recently admitted to the feds for the first time that he had previously sold synthetic marijuana to Walker and prosecutors are expected to grant him immunity to testify. the anticipation is that the defense will argue he has a motive to falsely accuse Walker in the robbery..
Defense lawyers also intend to attack probation officer Tanya Parris’s identification of Walker and the fingerprint expert’s match by calling Dr Itiel Dror, a Harvard-educated neuroscientist, to testify about a new theory called “cognitive bias” which suggests experts’ conclusions are susceptible to subconscious bias due to “perceptual distortion and inaccurate judgments,’ according to court papers.
Asisstant US DA for Brooklyn, Andrey Spektor, disclosed in court papers that Walker is a member of the Bloods 9 Trey Set and was promoted to the rank of “High Stain” after the former leader Garland Tyree was killed in a shootout with the NYPD and U.S. Marshals in Staten Island in 2015.
“The defendant is a dangerous, high-ranking member of the violent Bloods gang and a career criminal who has proven to be a menace even in prison,” Spektor stated.
