In MCC No Visitors or Showers For 5 Days Navedo Tells SDNY Judge As Pleads Guilty

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 3 -- During the guilty plea of Christian Navedo on March 3 to lesser included offenses involving gun possession and use in connection with a conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl, it emerged that he and other in the Metropolitan Correctional Center have had not visitors, or hot food or showers, for five days.  

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox asked Navedo if these conditions impacted his ability to understand the proceedings and plead guilty with a clear mind.  

"You mean, does it impact me?" Navedo asked.

His lawyer whispered to him, and he confirmed that his competence to plea guilty was not impacted.  

 The lack of visitors in the MCC arose the day before when Larry Ray appeared before Judge Fox; his Federal Defender said she had been unable to show him the government's video evidence.    

Navedo's lawyer put into the record the MCC conditions, likening them to the conditions in the MDC in Brooklyn which have given rise in many cases to reduced sentencing. Here, Navedo has agreed to not appeal or otherwise collaterally attack any sentence below 327 months. The case is US v. Navedo, 19-cr-259 (Fox / Berman).
