In SDNY Murky Mag Court Darren Brown Is Detained on Consent In Judge Marrero Crack Case

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 13 – While many or 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 13 Magistrate Judge James L. Cott twice saw a man named Trinidad whose detention, it emerged, was improper. He was given a plane ticket by the US Embassy to come and solve an immigration problem.

Then he was detained until on the afternoon of September 13 the Assistant US Attorney acknowledged that an immigration judge had ruled Trinidad's entry into the country had been legal. He was released but told to report again to Probation just after, and this coming Tuesday. Meanwhile no docket number was available. Inner City Press, the only media in the Mag court, aims to have more on this. We will keep asking. Also on September 13 Judge Cott processed and arraigned Darren Brown as part of a larger crack prosecution before Judge Victor Marrero. Brown was detained on consent, as the last case of the day and week.

On September 12 near 7 pm processed a drug defendant whose name was not even spelled, though he had a private lawyer and five supporters in the gallery where Inner City Press was again the only media. 

Earlier on September 12 a defendant named Ausencia Nazarrio Ortiz was presented and quickly detained upon consent, with no court date until October 15. 

Inner City Press will continue to cover this and other SDNY and 2nd Circuit cases - watch this site, and there is more on Patreon, here.
