In SDNY Murky Mag Court AUSA Chuichiolo Urges Bail For Liranzo Silent on Cooperator Rodriguez

By Matthew Russell Lee

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 16 – 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 16 before Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron there was one presentment which generated much media interest - David Correia - such that others, even involving tractor-trailers of drugs and cash, were ignored.

Past 5:40 pm one David Liranzo was presented, with retained / paid counsel. AUSA Nick Chuichiolo rans in out of the rain and conferred to the retained counsel, agreed to release on $100,000 bond. Other co-defendants in the case before Judge Edgardo Ramos have CJA, publicly funded counsel. Who might be more likely to cooperate again who? Chuichiolo still has not answered on the secret sentencing of a cooperator from 2005, Jose Rodriguez, before Circuit Judge Richard J. Sullivan. We'll have more on this.

Three MS-13 suspects were presented, each with a financial affidavit and CJA lawyer, and were quickly remanded to detention on consent. Alongside a prosecution before SDNY Judge Kevin Castel of narco-corruption to the very top of Honduras  - JOH - the US Attorney announced "an Indictment charging AMILCAR ROMERO, a/k/a “Soldado,” JAIME SANTANA, a/k/a “Smiley,” JOSE GARCIA, a/k/a “Tricky,” and ALEXANDER RIVERA, a/k/a “Extrano,” with racketeering conspiracy and narcotics distribution conspiracy.  CRISTIAN GUERRERO-MELGARES, a/k/a “Enigma,” and GUSTAVO LLEVANO-RIVERA are charged in the narcotics conspiracy count.  Several defendants also face firearms  charges.

 GARCIA, GUERRERO-MELGARES, and RIVERA were arrested this morning and w[ere] be presented today before Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron.  SANTANA was arrested last night and will be presented today in the Middle District of Tennessee.  ROMERO is currently in state custody in California on other charges and will be transferred to federal custody in New York and presented at a later date.  LLEVANO-RIVERA remains at large.  The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley III. "

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.
