Bench Warrant  Remains For Man Who Accused MTV Graden and Paramount Grey of Rape

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 21 –   A bench warrant was issued on June 17 for Rovier Carrington, charged with perjury after he accused former MTV executive Brian Graden of luring him into a sexual relationship with promises of stardom, and accused Brad Grey, the late CEO Paramount Pictures, of rape.

  After Judge Caproni spoke in court in New York about the arrest warrant, Carrington wrote in saying he was seeking his second booster and wanted three more seek.

Judge Caproni said he "chose to disobey the clear oders of this Court. He must now face the consequences of his decision. Application denied." 

   On June 16, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni ordered: "Defendant writes to request appearing remotely. ENDORSEMENT: Application DENIED. There are tickets available from Los Angeles to New York. See e.g., Jet Blue 1574 (leaving LAX at 11:55 P.M. and arriving at EWR at 8:34 A.M.); United Airlines 1082 (leaving LAX at 10:40 P.M. and arriving at EWR at 6:49 A.M.). Mr. Carrington is required to be in Court on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at 2:15 P.M. If Mr. Carrington fails to appear, the Court will hold an in person bail review hearing on Friday, June 17, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. The hearings will take place in Courtroom 443 of the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse, 40 Foley Square, New York, NY 10007. If Mr. Carrington fails to appear at tomorrow's hearing and at Friday's bail review hearing, the Court will issue a bench warrant for his arrest; and if he fails to appear Thursday, but does appear Friday, the Court will refrain from issuing a bench warrant."   

Inner City Press went to Judge Caproni's courtroom at 11 am.

The prosecutor was there, and a stand-in Federal Defender. But no Carrington. Judge Caproni said she was issuing a bench warrant.

She excluded time under the Speedy Trial Act until July 1, by which time she predicted the U.S. Marshals will have arrested Carrington and brought him to New York area jail.

 The case is US v. Carrington, 21-cr-653 (Caproni).
