NYPD Rodriguez Pleads Guilty to Bank Fraud After US Attorney Sought His Financial Affidavit

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – NYPD Officer Eduardo Rodriguez pled guilty to bank fraud charges on January 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court.

  He allocuted to misleading a bank in The Bronx as to the purpose of a loan. He will be sentenced on April 24 before SDNY Judge William H. Pauley III, and under his plea agreement cannot appeal any sentence below 18 months.

    Rodriguez was initially presented in the SDNY Magistrates Court on July 2; Inner City Press filed a report, here. On July 9, he filed a CJA 23 Form or financial affidavit seeking a publicly-paid lawyer. On July 10, the US Attorney's office filed a letter seeking to inspect his CJA 23 form.

   The assigned CJA lawyer Florian Miedel opposed disclosure of the form, citing a decision by then District Judge Richard J. Sullivan allowing a defendant file to financial information under seal and ex parte in support of his request for appoint counsel. US v. Fawaz, 12-cr-120, Doc. 11, filed August 1, 2012.

    Ulimately, Rodriguez like his co-defendant Ricardo Taboada has pled guilty. A third co-defendant Daniel Duran, represented by Bronx-based Murray Richmond, continues to request from Judge Pauley permission for travel; his status is unclear. The overall case is US v. Taboada et al., 19-cr-117 (Pauley).
