After OD Deaths in The Bronx 2 Defendants Were Not Produced March 9 Now Oct Motions

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 4 -- Back on March 14, 2019 a couple was found dead of a drug overdose in an apartment on Lafayette Avenue in The Bronx. The next day the New York City authorities attributed the deaths to cocaine and fentanyl.

   An investigation ensued, included described controlled drug buys leading to a February 3, 2020 complaint against four people including Bobby Ramos and Tyrone Howard.

  These two, after arrest, was scheduled for arraignment on March 9 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni. But, "[d]ue to an error by the Government's clerk's office, Mr. Howard and Mr. Ramos were not ordered produced for the scheduled arraignment." Assistant US Attorney Juliana N. Murray wrote to Judge Caproni to request a new date on March 11. 

 Inner City Press, already in 40 Foley Square to cover a sex trafficking trial before Judge Paul A. Engelmayer, ran to cover the arraignment. Judge Caproni moves fast.

But even at 3:05 pm she was naming April 30 for the next conference, at which she said she aims to name a trial date. A defense lawyer said he'd write to the court about discovery - including the extraction of seized smart phones - on April 28.

  Now on August 4, moving fast again, Judge Caproni has ordered that all pre-trial motions are due on or before October 15 and replies by November 19. Time has been excluded.

The case is US v. Burgos, et al., 20-cr-189 (Caproni).
