In SDNY Murky Mag Court Guagliardo Processed Still Sealed Night Before Judge Ash

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive follow up

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 11 – 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 October 10 before Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang around 7 pm a defendant was brought in by US Marshals and charged with the rare mix of embezzlement from a credit union and narcotics.

 They called him Mister Guagliardo and everyone seemed to know his (retained) defense counsel.  Inner City Press was the only media in the Mag court and published a story, here.

Assistant US Attorneys Eli Mark and Daniel Richenthal agreed he could be bailed if he agreed to only get drugs from a legitimate doctor; Richenthal personally took his passport and gave it to pre-trial services.

  But even an hour later the case was not listed in PACER. That remains the case on PACER even at 3 pm on October 11, by which time the US Attorney's Office emailed out that complaint and one, one docket number higher, against Syvlia Ash, of whom they say "presiding judge of the Kings County Supreme Court, Commercial Division, and former chair of the board of directors of Municipal Credit Union (“MCU”), was charged in Manhattan federal court with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice, arising from a scheme to seek to influence and impede an ongoing federal investigation into fraud and corruption at MCU, a non-profit, multibillion-dollar financial institution. 

U.S. Attorney Berman also announced today that JOSEPH GUAGLIARDO, a/k/a “Joseph Gagliardo,” a former New York City Police Department Officer and former member of MCU’s supervisory committee, was charged separately with embezzlement, fraud, and controlled substance offenses arising from abuse of his position as a member of the supervisory committee.  GUAGLIARDO was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, yesterday afternoon and was presented before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang in Manhattan federal court.  ASH was arrested at LaGuardia Airport this morning and is expected to appear before Magistrate Judge Wang in Manhattan federal court this afternoon." We'll have more on this. 

This is the murky Mag Court -and murky SDNY and US Attorney, including on its partial prosecutions of UN corruption. 

Inner City Press will stay on these cases.
