In SDNY Murky Mag Court Serbian Watch Store Robber Bailed But Not Contact With Lazar Mirkovic

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 9 – While many even most cases in the Magistrates Court of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York are sealed or have case numbers given only later, on September 9 Magistrate Judge James L. Cott issued bail release conditions for an allege watch store robber, including that he not speak with "Robber-1," identified as Lazar Mirkovic by Assistant US Attorney Jason M.. Swergold so that a condition against contact between the two could be issued.

The man to be released, currently a truck driver, must quit that job and turn in his Serbian passport. Inner City Press, the only media in the Magistrates Court at the time, has requested further information from the U.S. Attorney's Press Office. Watch this site.

On September 6 Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn arraigned four defendants in a case that even after the fact was still listed as sealed: 19-cr-627.  More on Patreon here.

  A case on September 6 that wasn't sealed involved an alleged Violation of Supervised Release by Andre X. Faison, who pled guilty in 2016 to being a "felon in possession" of an Israeli Military Industries Desert Eagle semi automatic pistol while dozing in a green Yukon on 169th Street and Boston Road in The Bronx.

For a time in that case Faison wanted to do his own questioning at trial. Then he pled guilty and got 37 months and three years of Supervised Release from SDNY Judge Paul G. Gardephe. Now he has been arrested in the Western District of New York, assigned Federal Public Defender MaryBeth Covert and shipped back to the SDNY. Why? SDN-Why. Watch this site.

In the still-sealed 19-cr-627 the four defendants, each with their own lawyer - three CJAs and presumably one Federal Defender - each got a different bail package, with two remanded until they meet the conditions. Two were ordered to stay two blocks away from Amsterdam Avenue between 155th and 159th Street. Two can't be so ordered, because they live there. They were given home confinement.

One, whose name we will not publish, is a high school student. Portrayed by Assistant US Attorney Brett Kalikow as the leader and supplier was Keith Green, who seemed to get the Federal Defender. She said his shoulder had popped out and could the Marshals only handcuff him to the front. Granted. Second was Isaiah Ward of Metropolitan Avenue, released on his own signature and later a $50,000 bond to be signed by two financially responsible people.

Fourth was Lucian Rogers with an outstanding bench warrant. Judge Netburn urged him to take care of it, releasing him on his own signature perhaps for this reason.  All four were given a control date before District Judge Victor Marrero on October 18, with apparently more defendants coming in. Tracking the case in PACER, however, is problematic given the seal. More on Patreon here.
