In SDNY Pollito Bank Fraud Cause 3rd Defendant Is Presented and Bailed for $50,000

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – In October 2019 Francisco Jose Maria or "El Pollito" was charged with selling stolen U.S. Treasury Checks and having co-conspirators deposit them in FDIC-insured banks. 

 In December 2019 it grew into an indictment, also naming Luis Vasquez-Eusebio and assigned to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul G. Gardephe.  

 On February 13, 2020 while Judge Gardephe was both overseeing jury deliberations in the case against Michael Avenatti for allegedly extorting Nike, and giving a "time served" sentence to a bank fraud convict now living in Pennsylvania, another defendant in the US v. Maria or El Pollito case was presented in SDNY Magistrates Court.  

SDNY Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger agreed to the proposal of Assistant US Attorney Elizabeth A. Espinosa to release Rubio on $50,000 bond, the same day, with one financially responsible person to return to co-sign the bond within one week.  The case is US v. Maria, et al., 19-cr-868 (Gardephe / Lehrburger).
