Thief in law Aleksey Tsvetkov 'can’t take these lies anymore!'

Aleksey Tsvetkov
Aleksey Tsvetkov, 41, was triggered during his sentencing as the judge handed him a 16 year sentence for his 2018 racketeering conviction. Tsevtkov shouted 'I can’t take these lies anymore!' and accused the prosecutor of misleading jurors.

Shortly after his conviction, Tsvetkov, who was born in Ukraine, wrote a letter to the judge claiming his jurors were anti-Russian. He also said his case was politically motivated. Tsvetkov was convicted with co-defendant Leonid 'Lenny' Gershman.
Tsvetkov was convicted of racketeering, illegal gambling, loansharking, extortion, arson and drug distribution. Set to be sentenced, he claimed “a lot of issues” with his public defender, his third, and wanted a new one. When the judge asked Tsevtkov why he didn’t just hire his own lawyer Tsvetkov said "I can't afford one".
